So bad was my addiction to Civilization Revolution 2 that I lost track of time (read: forgot) and left my girlfriend waiting in the cold at the train station. I’m an awful boyfriend but, evidently, a really good Civ player, so I think it balances out.
There’s a reason why I dedicated so much time to my iPad, and it’s not only because the game I was playing was so addictive: it’s also because, as a console gamer, there’s nothing to play.
