I am taking 4 weeks of vacation this summer and a few days around Christmas. This should leave me with a few days off left. Considering that Civilization V is coming out in September this year, I wonder if I should take time off just to play the game around the clock for a week or so.
I can't really stay away from the game altogether, and late nights sessions aren't good for my productivity at work. Maybe getting an overdose of the game at once when it comes out could solve that problem.
Although I have always been interested in video games, I have never seen myself as excessively passionate about them. I have looked down at the World of Warcraft crowd, thinking that their dedication to the game was a bit ridiculous. It turns out I might not be much better myself.
Civ and WoW are the two games I can think of that can turn video-game skeptics and illiterates into addicts.
