Is it not frightening when you start to tally up all those wasted hours playing a computer game. Lets say two, possible three hours a day since 2009. Then of course you can extend it back to 2004 with WitP and even further back to 2002 with Uncommon Valour. 15 Years of utterly wasted time. Added to that is the time spent thinking at work, what the heck did I do wrong; what's the best Japanese a/c production; how can I do this better; how would some one else do that I check the forum, etc. etc.
Is it a game or is it some sad reflection on our meaningless lives.
Excuse me, I've just remembered, Allies invading Lunga....
Not wasted time - a form of meditation that keeps the mind sharp (well, sharper than watching most TV programs!) and allows you to de-stress from real-life pressures (providing you avoid SCLS!).
And the camaraderie of the forum is a wonderful change from the mean-spirited world out there!
Kudos to the game's creators for an immersive experience that is different every time you play!
