I was just chatting my fellow CMPer, Kinley Baker, about gaming. I mentioned before that The Sims 3 is a favorite pastime of mine, and she pointed out (quite rightly!) that Sims is a major time suck. So true! Hours go by unnoticed when you get into a game of the Sims.
I try to set work and writing goals for myself, and only after I reach them, am I allowed to Sim. I don’t always follow my own rules, but I try. Where I seriously fail is with the Xbox.
I’ve had some Xbox loves over the years – Fable, Rock Band, GTA 4, Bayonetta, and my newest addiction, Skyrim. Ah, Skyrim! This is a beautiful, amazing, in-depth game filled with ridiculous amount of content as well as bugs. But for all the bugs, I forgive it. The game is just that awesome. There should be a 12 step program for Skyrim, though. It is the single most addictive game I’ve ever played.

Where else can you become an expert archer, take part in a revolution, ride a dragon, and save a kingdom? And all while sitting on the couch?
