Obsessed
A girl I work with told me about this game she just got, Fish Tycoon. The premise is that on the island of Isola something terrible happened that messed up the environmental balance and all the fish died. So you have to find the right balance, grow more fish, find the 7 magic fish and repopulate the island. In order to finance your mission you have to sell fish along the way along with caring for them and doing environmental testing to get the right balance so all the fish can survive.
I thought this sounded cute. kinda like a fishy version of Sims. I love Sims, but had to quit because it was soaking up way too much of my time. I was obsessed. I played it constantly and couldn't walk away. But I figured this sounded more simple, it'd be something I could just mess with. Wrong, I started it yesterday and aside from some time to eat (which Marc had to keep saying "we have to leave, are you almost ready?") and playing a little guitar, I've been glued to the computer. Obviously whether it's people or fish, I can't play these type games.

I hear ya...in 7th Grade I was addicted to Oregon Trail (I think my family was worried about me...rightfully so). I recovered until later in life,
I had it bad for Tony Hawk Pro Skater when I was a newlywed...(almost blew off my bachelorette party in favor of skating to the next level). Scary! But, FUN!!

yeah, Oregon Trail was my first addiction... something new would always happen! I loved me some Super Mario Brothers, Spyro the Dragon, Frogger... and Crash Bandicoot was my major downfall! When I lived in CO we would watch the snow fall and play video games.... one time I almost stayed up all night!
