    Have you ever skipped school/work to play a game?

    I have tons of times(and with my parents permission ^_^). I did it for FFVII; I missed an entire 2 weeks to play and beat the game(don't worry, they were at the beginning of the year, plus I'm super smart so....). Then when MGS hit in 98, that was it for me. I didn't MOVE from my den for the 30 hours it took me to beat the game(I didn't rush, I savored every second of it). Then again in 2001, with(drumroll).....MGS2!!! I still miss school just to play it. Hardcore.....it's an unforgiving lifestyle.

  2. This question has got to be a joke. Of course I have!!

  3. 30 hours!? What did you do? Inspect every surface in the game? Yikes. How did you miss a whole 2 weeks of school? At my HS you got into some shit for missing 10 days in the whole year. Oh, I skipped for FF 7 and Mario 64. I might have skipped another time but I don't remember...I think I ditched class for RE: Remake once (it was raining hardcore so I decided I'd be better off not going).

  4. Skip school to play a game?

    I much more often skipped school for no exact reason at al...
    Does it make you happy you're so strange?

  5. Work? No. Class...... well. Lets' just say I missed 3 days of college in a row drawing "Phish" sprites and inserting them into a Super Mario 2 ROM. That was the worst case. Games would indirectly cause me to miss class as well. I'd miss sleep for games and then miss class for sleep.

    when i got psx, i skipped school for RE and the demo disc...that's it though.

  7. Maybe one or two days (probably 1) for FF8. And I think I also missed a few classes during a Gunbird 2 marathon (not that I got anywhere with it).

    If you're hardcore, then I'm flucking Yu Suzuki.
    It's a mirror image!
