Don’t Do Drugs, Just Play Games

"In whatever incarnation gaming eventually takes, I think it’s safe to say I’ll be there over-thinking some aspect of gaming most people take for granted. What this means to me is that I need a way to fight the darkness, to keep the childlike wonder and hope against all hope." - Jake Woolf (Gaming Like A Sir Columnist) (Activision Blizzard Inc., EA, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

"I’m going to play games forever. It’s a frightening statement but one that I feel is a pretty good bet."

I feel the exact same way, and I know my wife finds it frightening!

They can make a game more immersive for sure, especially if you have a good home theater setup. The downside is you won't remember what the hell is going on in the story, though for online play that doesn't matter. x)

It's the opposite for me, I get totally engrossed when baked. It's when I'm sober that I stop paying attention.
