You too!? lol.

Uh... guess the longest I've been without my XBawks was a month or so. Once due to RROD, another to my friend borrowing it/holding it hostage.

Exactly, since I had mine RRoD on me almost two months before Fallout 3 came out. Luckily, I got it back in time for the game to be released. If it hadn't, I'm not sure what I would have done, not being able to play.

I don't play as much as I used to, because of Dial-up, but I do play games almost every other day at least, for maybe an hour or two. The last extended absence I remember taking a break from gaming was the time I was in boot camp. Before that, my Dad took away my systems so that I would work outside with him on his big-rig (it was torture). Although, all this was years ago (but it still haunts me to this day)...

Anyway, as far as going without gaming? I can answer that pretty well. 3 1/2 months. My gaming "celebacy" was related to my system. Yes ladies and gents, I bought a frag-tard-tastic XBox 360 with a RROD label practically emblazoned on the box. It only took it two months to RROD me. Oh God I was pissed. 3 1/2 months later it comes back.

But wait! there's MORE!

6 months later RROD again. So I chucked the m$%^er f#$%er out the door and got me a Jasper model.

Haven't had a problem since.
Women are very funny creatures =/

My mom used to act like my videogames in general were an actual person and she was REALLY jealous of him/her. Whats funny too is that same as your ex, my mom remains husbandless hehe xP

Going without video games: meh, I would adapt, even if you took them away from me indefinitely. Longest I've gone without video games? I'd say a couple months, especially during school and when my laptop needed to be repaired.

Going without the Internet: *runs crying to mommy*
