Default Re: What you do in life?

I don't have the time for gaming that I used to. Between work, working on my house, time with wife, daughters and grandson....

I will say that when I BUY a new game (You know, the opposite of stealing it) I do attempt to get the maximum amount of enjoyment out of that title.

Since this is in gaming section, this is what I do in life:

-Help a UAC outpost on Mars deal with a teleportation problem.
-Going through my studies at University of Innsbruck and then MIT.
-As a hobby, taking part in a "tournament" of sorts...
-Taking part in "Operation Alien Overlord", a desperate attempt to protect Earth from alien invasion by launching a counter-attack on the home planet of the hostile cybernetic Strogg civilization.

As you can see, this leaves little time for any other activities.

Like after 6 months i first time instal GTA 4, amazing game but i dont have time to play, and i asume its a long game to finish and explore

maybe im just slow or not that much addicted?

24 hours minus:

8 hours sleep
1/2 hour for shower, hair, etc
1 hour morning meditation
9 hours work including lunch
1/2 hour total commute
1 hour for dinner
1 hour evening meditation

Equals: 3 hours of free time per day.

If I need more time in a day I skip the meditation or drop 1 or 2 hours of sleep.

And when Diablo III comes out it'll be - 2 hours of sleep - 1 hour med. - 1 hr dinner - 30min shower, + shaved head to mimic the Monk which gives you a grand total of 7.5 hours of gaming a day plus a sweet as chrome dome. I'm going to hook myself to an IV so I don't die, the only danger being that it may be too hot in hell for my overclocked PC(Anyone have reliable data on whether Egyptian burial rites were effective...can I bring my PC to the underworld?)

I'm lucky to get 3-4 hrs of sleep a day

Insomnia rules my life

Designer of house frames, some days I'm not doing a whole lot and can surf the web. Other days I'm flat out. Only 38 hours of work a week. The real reason I get time to buy and play games though is that I don't watch much TV at all, don't have a significant other, don't have many sporting activities and don't have a life. So I get quite a bit of free time.
