And even so, it's not healthy to stay home and just watch tv and listen to music every night. Yeah, you can limit that play but we all know that thats not going to happen with these mmos. They're designed for hours and hours of play at a single sitting. As you know just type /played, I dunno, something just doesn't sit right when you break down those days in to hours. Then thinking back about all those weekend nights/days I stayed in to get tio that next lvl or get that gear.

DOn't get me wrong, it was pretty tough to do, I had a ton of time sunk in to thoughs guys I deleted. btw, I'm not hear to change anyones mind, just here to share my opinion and to see if anyone has gone through the same issue.

Cant say I agree with you here. You can play these games casually at the rate you described which is comparable to your example. People can play RTS like warcraft 3 for hours and hours on end. Or they can play one game a night on battle.net. Its the competitive nature of the person playing which tends to cause more time dedicated to it. Any game can be be just as addicting if you take it seriously enough.
