I vaguely remember deciding that it was okay for me to play video games in my early twenties, since I'd probably give it up once I got a full time job. I figured 25 would probably be the age my console would go dark and I'd start to use Excel on my computer. Well things have certainly turned out different. My habits have definitely changed. Now when I say "all-nighter" I mean that I stayed up until midnight. Still, the enjoyment is still there. I still get excited at screenshots and buy games strictly on the basis of hype. And now that I'm staring down the barrel of 30, I know I've already told a few people that I couldn't imagine still playing after that. I may be eating birthday cake and crow next year. I'm just hoping someone will remember get me that Alienware gift certificate.
