The day I give out BJ's for a video game is the day I'll stop playing...

I'll probably draw the line just before that happens.

I hate myself.

Maybe video game, as in WOW...

I know that becomes basically like crack to some.

I used to smoke 6 copies of Bayonetta a day. I even blew out a couple of veins while shooting up PS3 slims. Also sucked some things I wasn't proud of for Street Fighter II quarters.
Don't be like me kids, take 15 minute breaks after every hour of gameplay.

That's so stupid I don't even...... I have never not played a game for a few days and then became violently ill due to toxins leaving my body.
