It's 10 pm. Do you know where you and your loved ones are? Here is a collection of experiences from those who live / have lived with an obsessive MMOG gamer and from those who have lived the experience of obsessive MMOG gaming.

I have not updated this site for a little while. It's not because there aren't new stories of EQ obsessive playing cropping up but it has more to do with my personal life - there have been a lot of family illness / death occursing on the male side, so my sincerest apologies for not staying on top of everything right now.

When I look at their death / cause for illnesses, I see the following reasons: smoking and working (aka traveling & eating badly, working with asbestos, too much on their feet for too many hours). The men are perishing earlier than the women, not because of the gender but because of other issues. What I wonder about now is what the next generation of men is going to die from. Work perhaps, harmful substances surely, but I also anticipate more death causes due to any repetitive activity that's done for a large majority of time (aka 40+ hours). TV, spending time in front of the computer, heck, just standing in the corner might just do it. Either way, before you decide that you don't care, perhaps just for a second, consider living a more balanced life. For sake of the ones who love you.
