    Hooked on a new game

    In case you're wondering where (and why) I suddenly disappeared, I got a new game - Final Fantasy 12, and I've been hooked on it. I'll be at it for quite some time yet. Have any of you had something like this (not neccessarily with a game, but a book, movie, big event, or something else otherwise temporary).

    Does cocaine count?

    Heh jk. It happens often where you get hooked on things. It generally lasts until you beat the game.
    My computer is awesome.

    Last time that happened to me was God of War 2. I have no idea why they released that game 2 days after 300 came out. Man, was that a testosterone-filled week.

    Gears of War had me pretty attached to my 360. Forza 2. MGS3. C&C. CoD2/3. GTA series. It happens a lot to me.

    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.
