I am way past high school. I'm done with college. Hell, I've even finished up my required grad classes, but I'm still addicted to video games! My love affair started back in the mid-80's with old school Nintendo, that was merely puppy love. When I got pissed off one day and broke the controller and slammed the game console, it was time to move on to Sega. I worshipped Sega for a few years then technology made graphics better in the form of Playstation. Playstation was a quick fix until my current blister maker Playstation 2 arrived on the scene. Now, I don't have the money to be buying PS3 when it comes out, but God knows I'll be tempted, and my PS2 will start to get the hint that my eyes are wandering to something more enticing. Sports games continue to get more and more realistic. Baseball games used to be so simple back in the day, now it's practically like managing a real team when playing.

*Does anybody else play their gaming system to the point that they get blisters?

Madden is my mortal enemy. I must refrain from buying it until Christmas break because I get too caught up in it and forget to do daily chores...craziness!

I used to play TIE Fighter on a mildly uncomfortable joystick (the only one that lasted longer than a week). Not only did I develop calluses, but my left thumb, which supported the joystick underside, went numb by the end of a playing session.
