@MissCountryGirl727:  Never has, and I don’t think he ever would. My DH plays video games (about 4-6 hours per week), but he prioritizes his work/career over them. We both reserve vacation days for traveling and time with family.

Hope your DH does something other than just sit there all day though! On days where my DH doesn’t work, he will play some games, but usually cleans (without having to be asked).

I have called in sick to play Sims 3 at my old job.  And because of a zit.  Hey, it’s my sick leave, I earned it.  😉

We saw an advert for the PS4 yesterday, I think I saw DH tear up a little.

With a baby due soon he won’t get it, but it’s killing him a little inside!

@MissCountryGirl727: FI hasn’t done it for new consoles (we won’t be getting the XBox One and will be waiting to purchase the PS4) but he has taken stretches of vacation for certain games, specifically the Resident Evil games. When the fifth game (I think?? maybe fourth) came out he and his buddy took 2 consecutive days off and holed up in his buddy’s apartment under a blanket fort, hahahahah.

@MissCountryGirl727:  My husband pre ordered xbox one and was at best buy at midnight waiting to pick it up and buy whatever else he wanted for it! He took a vacation day from work today so he could have time to set it up.  Its funny because my husband rarely plays video games but this was something he really wanted and has been talking about it since they even mentioned coming out with a new one! I almost took the day off myself to go with him and hang out playing it all day but we found out we are pregnant and I would rather save up my vaca time then use it for xbox!

@MissCountryGirl727:  I was seriously addicted to the Sims.  Once I got up early in the morning, sat down to play and was still sitting there when the sun came up the next morning.  I think someone brought me a plate of food at some point, lol.  I had to go cold turkey.  That game was like being God.  🙂

@MissCountryGirl727:  Oh man…the SIMS, that’s like crack for control freaks!!  The other game that got me in a heap of trouble was Fable, Skyrim and the worst of them all was Dragon Age….I must have stayed up all night playing and when Mr. 99 got up the next morning I was like…fixated on the screen because I finally managed to seduce Alistaire…he blithley commented that I wasn’t even that excited when WE had sex…and I had to agree, but in my defense, Mr. 99 certainly doesn’t play hard to get….so I felt like I’d really accomplished something just then.

@Nona99:  I freely admit to being a control freak, lol!!!  Those games are like being a kid again playing with dolls but so much better.  My world was sssoooo perfect! I really liked making my characters evil the best, they were more challenging and interesting.  Taking an evil shower, haha!  I don’t want to think about being tempted by gaming again, I have no self control.  But my gaming computer is kick ass, custom built.
