A can of Axe Deodorant. I'm not a huge fan of strongly scented grooming products to begins with. And, yeah, I'm not 10 years old.

What I am here is the truth, nothing but the truth... but maybe not all the truth.
My disappointment of the year wasn't a 2013 game. I finally got time to play Guild Wars 2 this year and, man, I had such high hopes. What a bland game that was.
As for games released this year. Battlefield 4 is starting to work its way to disappointment. I'm STILL having issues with it, weeks after release.
Collecting toys, as an adult, is as legitimate as any type of collection oriented hobby. But buying a single set of expensive toys you're not even sure you want?
You just have to say no to the kid you.
I wouldn't want to permanently move anywhere. But just to get away from this rugged november-february season I wouldn't mind to temporarily live somewhere completely different. Say Cape Town, South Africa.
As an adult with a fairly high powered and stressful career followed by the other typical adult responsibilities I play most games on easy and have to avoid a lot of MP. I play games to relax and escape stress, so easy is where it's at. People that want all games to be super hard and 40 hours long *probably* have no lives or are superior humans (doubtful). I also know I don't have the time to sink enough hours into MP to get as skilled as I need to be so it'd be fun as well so that kind of blows but whatever.
I find it curious that you feel the need to assert how important you are and insult anyone that might be better than you at playing video games.
Anyway, it depends on the game for me. Usually I play on normal, but The Last of Us was a much better experience for me when I moved up to hard.
Assert, as in state a fact about me? Yes this entire thread is about why we choose the difficulty we choose. I stated the fact that I have a very demanding and stressful career and because of that when I play games I don't need any more stress than I get at work, it's not too much but is my limit and only do it because it's "worth" it for my family. I have an executive position in finance and we'll leave it there. I don't have the time for many 40 hour games, nor do I want to punch myself in the balls when I do get a few hours to play. Too many people here take shit too personally. I still stand by the idea that people who want games to be super hard and near 40 hours are the hardest of hardcore or no lifers, there's simply not enough time in the day otherwise.
I hope no one took anything personal. I just wanted a discussion. Let's just play games the way we like and don't stress yourself out. Not worth it.
Or maybe some people consider a challenging hobby outside of work to be the best stress reliever.
Just out of curiosity what do you do for a living?
Logistics management. All I'm saying is that the challenge help some people (like me) to disconnect even further from work (or other stressful life elements). It doesn't mean that I have no life, that sounded a bit harsh.
