    self-explanatory. name yours

    mine:
    -...you go to sleep and dream about finding Star Maps and fighting Darth Malak (KotOR)
    -...you hear the word "cliff", and shiver, remembering horrible memories of the cliff racers (TES3: Morrowind)

    I hate cliff racers so much.

    You know your addicted to pc games when your at football practice and you say in the pre game pep talk, "let's beat the **** out of these fetchers!" And your dead serious.

    And then you know your a boss when no one questions you and the word becomes a fad....... I'm going to miss high school

    ...when you have flashbacks of your best killstreaks in Modern Warfare 2 (last night was my recent 33 killstreak, no nuke unfortunately) at the worst times (shouldnt elaborate further)
    ...when you have very serious and long deliberations about whether to play KOTOR 2, Morrowind, or Fallout 2

    When you wish real-life was like San Andreas/Sims where you go to the gym for the day and you come out looking like the Terminator.

    When you type "up down left right left right a b select call" on your phone wanting to unlock the real-life versions of the cheat console.

    For me, it's definitely when a game starts appearing in my dreams that I know I'm addicted to it. I don't know how many times that's happened to me, but it's gotta be in the hundreds for sure.

    Cliff Racers are easy; just keep a bow primed and your eyes pealed.

    You know you're addicted to PC gaming when you have a dream about Italian Spear Militia holding the line (MTW).

    Wow. NASCAR Racing 3. I still have it here, full packaging and everything.
    And once I was so crazy I've completed a full race, something like 400 laps.
    Ja mata, TosaInu. You will forever be remembered.

    Been to:

    Swords Made of Letters - 1938. The war is looming in France - and Alexandre Reythier does not have much time left to protect his country. A novel set before the war.

    A Painted Shield of Honour - 1313. Templar Knights in France are in grave danger. Can they be saved?

    i have something similar: whenever you walk down the street you are constantly looking around for cover and the best vantage points to shoot from, and are on the alert for snipers.

    When a burned-out motherboard ruins your plans for the entire weekend. (Dang, no virtual activities for me, purely analog reality!) And here I was just getting into Europa Universalis: Rome Gold.

    -edit-

    I could buy the OS X version for the laptop, but somehow I can't see paying for the game again.

    When you can't find sleep because you're trying to plan the loot distribution of the boss your WoW guild is trying to defeat.
    "Should I spend my DKP on this staff or on the T4 chest piece?" or "I didn't get the dagger this week, but I can still get the gloves on that boss. I'll get the pointy weapon next week"

    Most horrible time in my life. Ever.

    When during class out draw a derailed Mediterranean map and unit rosters so you can lay out a perfectcampaign idea.

    And when you print out screen shots if every single battle map you can get so you can precisely lay outbattles to minimize casualties.

    When in midgame out start talking to your troops

    When you post in this thread?
    When you get a physical ache after not playing them for a period of time?
    When you push away loved ones to play games?
    When you have nearly ten thousand posts on a video game forum?
    When you have a shirt that says: "I don't need a life, I'm a gamer, I have many lives"?

    I went through a period where I lost my addiction to computer games. My flatmates used to comment how I was a perfectionist, in having the tidiest room, always up on time, went to be early, always on schelude, cooking, cleaning, etc.

    Then I got Rome: Total War.

    I think I'm entering week 3 with no gaming PC. Waiting on warrantied power supply to arrive. I gotta say, I really appreciate Valve bringing some game to OS X, 'cause I would be completely high and dry without this laptop. At least I can do some Portal, some Half-Life 2, some Team Fortress. It's better than absolutely nothing.

    But come on, Thermaltake, get me that PS!
