There is a little truth to it. Gaming can be an intrusive hobby. Sometimes it can lead to an inordinate amount of time spent playing rather than doing something productive, like not playing games all day.
@Butler: I remember hearing that too. I think it's a ridiculous thing to say. not everyone is like Jeff, in fact most people hardly have time for games. To have a game that you have been looking forward to playing spoiled to you is a terrible experience. I think he is just so far removed from this mindset that he thinks its your own fault for listening to game discussion.Even for the purposes of living vicariously through people, who have time to consume an overwhelming amount of media.
