Is it normal for those of you who play video games, to play them in all your free time, all day, every day only to stop to eat, for bathroom breaks, and to sleep unless football is on of course.

For me it's yes and no. When a new game drops that I have been waiting for its like you described. I eventually dwindle down my play time. It's an escape. It's extremely fun and challenging. I was raised on an Atari and nes.

That's the norm for me unless someone actually wants to throw the football or play a pickup game.

Is it similar to an addiction for you? Doesn't it make you tired? Does it effect your relationships?

Not really.. I do some house work and clean up,do p90x then just play games.. I don't do it because im addicted.. I do it because I can't find anything else to do. Relationship wise.. I dunno .. had a bad one a year or so ago so I haven't even tried to look again since then so I don't really remember.

I think it's a generational thing. I've never played video games, couldn't tell the difference between a PS, XBox and whatever else there is out there. I have a couple nephews, one of which plays all the time, and he has grade issues at school. Don't know if that has anything to do with it, but if he were my kid the games would put away until the grades came up.

I don't know, I just see the draw. I can find so much more to do with my time...

I will say this about them, they improved the poo out of my hand-eye coordination. Kids that play sports .. most of the better players play video games.

Addicted? No

Makes me tired? No

Does it effect my relationship? No

I played A LOT of video games during college. I worked 20-30 hours a week and graduated with triple major and 3.4 GPA and while in serious relationship. Video games and drugs are not the same even tho some people making it out to be.
