to all the gamers
Really, the only time I've ever felt that I really wasted time and felt bad about playing a game was back when I played WoW. The game was freaking terrible, I bitched and complained, and I kept playing it anyways. Now I don't play it, and I have 0 urge to go back... because the game is terrible. Despite numerous friends of mine begging me to come back.
Gaming is a hobby like any other really, people like to spend time on their hobbies, and just like music, a few people even turn it into a career. And just like Rampant, I draw a lot of inspiration from the games I play to write music. "Them"? I wrote that after listening to "To Zanarkand", famous from Final Fantasy X. "Dropped It, Sorry"? I wrote that after getting my ass kicked by a boss (Although I can't remember exactly what game).
And of course the "weeks without food, sleep, bathroom" comments are more than a little exaggeration, it's simply how gamers tend to express their excitement for particular games before they are released....
...Even if there have been people that died because they neglected to eat or sleep (There have been, I'm not joking) while playing a game... I doubt the gamers here are that "extreme".
