    It's fairly recent I think. I used to play a game called World of Warcraft religiously. It was an online multipler game type deal where you would spend hours and hours a day playing .. the more you played, the "stronger" your character would get. It was an evil cycle. At one point I was playing 15 hours a day. The game is like over 10 years old now. And the kids playing it now are far different then people who played it 10 years ago. Now, you get achievements just by opening the box. Everything that was done through months of waste time in front of the computer 10 years ago can now be done in a matter of a week. When we played it back then, the time sink was just a part of the grind. Now, kids complain that it takes too much time and that things can't be done given other things on their schedule.

    Here's a thought kid. If you want something, how about you put in the time?
    HAHA, yea, I played that. It was such a grind back then.
    I stopped playing when it felt less like a community, and more like a single-player game that other people just HAPPENED to also be playing on the same server.

        I burnt out at the end of the first iteration and sold my account for 1000 bucks on ebay.
        I came back for kicks a couple years ago. And the game was totally different.

          Absolutely. I played all of them. Even the real time strategy games like starcraft and warcraft 2 and 3.

              Right now I'm only playing Overwatch. But over the past couple of years, SC2, Diablo 3, and Heroes of the Storm I was dabbling in.

                At the end of Vanilla, I had PVP Highwarlord, and full tier 3

                I played 15 hours sat and sunday. 8 hours after work monday through friday.

                Granted, I was playing hungover most of the time and took frequent "puke" breaks.

                  Overwatch looks crazy fun. It gets me motion sick though.

                    Holy ****, dude....you must have smelled like a dumpster. The only way to get GM or HWL was to basically never sleep, eat or shower....lol
                    In vanilla, I think I pvp capped at rank 9? I just couldn't muster the willpower to do anything for that amount of time hhaha
                    I only did up to tier 2.5 content. I was never pushing new content really. I played on Stormrage, which as I recall was the first LOCKED server. we had a bunch of world first raiders

                        My wife to be and I at the time were long distance so I had all the time in the world to party hard and play video games hard. Work took a distant 3rd. Haha. Food wise my strategy was to make a huge freaking pot of beef stew that would last me the week. So all I had to do was heat it up and eat in front of the computer.

                        Good times though. I'm definitely a gamer at heart for sure. I almost failed out of school due to video games.

                            I didn't game much in school. I was too busy chasing girls, and drinking my face off....so THAT'S why I almost failed out of school.........................


                            .........ok, so I DID fail out of my first school......but it's hard to pass when you never show up......

                              I was either drinking or gaming. I didn't even show up to half my exams my first couple years. Technically I did fail out. But then got re-admitted. That kind of woke my *** up. I then went to enough classes to pass and graduate. I was on probation my entire stay there though because my GPA was really really low.

                                I was put on academic probation at my 2nd school, before I even started. I was dumbfounded that that was "a thing"....but, I only got in because someone on the alumni board got me in, so I didn't question it. I didn't deserve to get into a school after flunking out of UGA.
