    What would you give up to play videogames?

    Quite simple, really. What in your life would you be willing to give up in order to be able to play videogames? A body part? The ability to drive? Da wimminz?



    I'm curious to know how far we'd all go.

    I already give up sleep, and have given up eating on many occasions.

    Nothing too drastic though.

    Sleep. Food, drink and company enhance my enjoyment of the One True Noble Sport.

    ​But I would give up all three.

    I've given up sleep for certain games. From staying up all night playing Felix the Cat on the NES as a child to staying up all night just driving the Mako around all the planets in Mass Effect as a man-child, I've been there and will continue to do that kinda stuff when a game hits a chord with me.

    As for giving up anything of real note? Absolutely not. I don't need video games that much.

    Nah. I make time for games rather than give up anything.

    All in moderation folks.

    I gave up having a significant social life during high school to play games. I beat a shit tonne of them and can't say that I really regretted it too much since high school sucks and I'm still friends with all the worthwhile people from it.

    I actually drink less when playing video games. I only get crazy hardcore smashed when I come to Destructoid.

    Food
    Friends
    Gigs
    Shower
    Sleep

    All depends on the right game.

    Definitely the opposite for me. I tend to game better when I'm faded.

    I already gave up fitness because of the games. Only other thing I'll still give up is my time and money. This makes me think if maybe there is a way to gain from video games.
