Addicted to Halo 3

  1. Jun 5, 2009 #1
    Last December, I got an XBOX 360 coupled with some video games. Before this, I had never really played video games much. The last gaming system I owned was Nintendo 64 or short for N64.

    Ever since December, my addiction to Halo 3 has been growing by day. My fingers hurt even just typing this.

    Video games. The best way to avoid the social and natural world. :biggrin:

    Halo 3 is a very fun game, but yeah i'm guessing you dont have school / uni or a job lol. With those factors you would find less and less time to play.

    So does that make PF the methadone clinic for gamers? Substitute a more socially acceptable addiction (educational discussions about science) for a more harmful one like gaming? :biggrin: You did see the warning label when you signed up, right, the one that the surgeon general requires explaining that PF may be addicting?

    Whilst I don't have a gaming addition, I am certainly developing an addiction to Twitter! I have no idea why it is so addictive, but I seem to have developed the urge to broadcast what I am doing to the entire world, whilst reading the banalities of 100's of strangers.

    If Halo is Heroin, and PF methadone, then Twitter is poppers.

    Everyone is addicted to something.

    PF is a great way for me to see what topics are out there in certain areas of the forum. Biology and Astronomy are both interesting to me. So is Halo 3! :biggrin:

    I just started summer classes at my college just last Wednesday. I'm only taking two classes. I can't even find a job around here. So Halo 3 and school work fits in well.

    Oh so I think....
