  1. When I was in college, I was addicted to Pokemon. The cartoon was the only thing on while I was getting ready for class every morning. The commercials got to me. Gotta catch em all!.

    I dug out my old gameboy and bought the Red version. I was playing it every night. It got so bad, I would be walking around campus or sitting in class and I could hear the 8-bit music in my head, even with my gameboy at home.

  2. While videogames (especially RPGs) might have kept me as a loner throughout most of my K-12 education, it came to a bit of a peak junior year of high school. I would basically neglect my (first) girlfriend due to my addiction with Halo 2. The online multiplayer was amazing (vehicles! explosions! trash talking!) and the fact that it made easy to meet up with my friends after class in the comfort of our own homes made it insanely convenient. My girlfriend assumed I was simply to busy for her, due to excuses along the lines of “my parents need me to do chores” and “I have a lot of homework tonight for my AP classes” served to solidify this relationship’s doom. Did I mention that I participated in Halo tournaments?

    I regret nothing!

  3. I had (and have) an addiction to all things Zelda. It started out early, watching my brothers play Legend of Zelda all the time when I was a little kid. I would sit for hours, fascinated. The puzzles, the dungeons, the sound effects, the weapons, the cute pink bunny Link. I never got enough of it.

    When I was old enough to be able to grab the controller from my brothers and play it for myself, I was officially addicted. Ever since, the reason I buy a new system is because, and only because, a new Zelda game was released for it.

    But I can’t say that this addiction has caused problems in my life – if only because I know my priorities. It’s not that Zelda comes in conflict with my life but that my life is the thing that comes in conflict with Zelda. Throwing money I don’t really have for new systems and games? Staying up all weekend for a Zelda-fest when I need to get projects done? Soiling my pants because I can’t rip myself away from a speed run of Legend of Zelda (for the umpteenth time)? Not Zelda’s fault, it’s that damn life getting in the way.
