I used to have very bad obsessions with games. When PSO came out for the Dreamcast, playing that before I ever bothered getting dressed was rather normal for a while. In high school I was playing Diablo 2 and LoD for over two years every day! And yes I have gone through the addiction of World of WarCrack.

The best thing to do is just limit how much you do play. Like say, I'm going to play it on Saturdays in the morning. Cause if you have other things that need to be done, it will help curb your time naturally. I do that since I got back to Diablo (1). I don't play it much I only get a few hours in a week, and it a nice de-stresser.

And while some have said they will never play WoW, it's a good game, you meet some cool people. I've just not been on for the fact I don't have the time (especially now) and I really can't afford the monthly fee. When I get things more settled I might get back into it.

Time management. You'll need it to survive the really world, might as well start doing it now.

damn, you played a game for two years EVERY DAY? Now that IS an unhealthy obsession. I used to be obsessive over games too. For me it was sonic adventure and crazy taxi.

But if you were only playing it for an hour a day, that would seem reasonable. It is a game you can get pretty deep into. (But I have to agree, 2 years straight is amazing)

I've been playing DJMAX Portable: Black Square on my PSP for about 1 year and 6-7 months now. At least 20-30 minutes per day, typically an hour and the longest time I played it is about 7-8 hours when I was stuck in a car on a trip.

I first downloaded an ISO to my PSP because it was only released abroad, but I imported the UMD for my collection some time ago and for Link Discs to actually 100% the game.

And, get this, I'm just 73% complete. Hah. And I've busted up two sets of action buttons, the rubber membrane thing of my PSP is starting to go and the right trigger is seedy.

Yeah, don't play Minecraft. I pulled an all nighter last night, and classes today were hell.

I found it last week and have already pulled 2 all nighters. Did you know they're adding biomes? And some sort of flying device?

when yall say minecraft, you mean minecraft alpha right? How much does it cost? It seems really cool, but I'm not sure I want to shell out some money for it.

Yes. It's 13 bucks and it's soooo worth it.
