The only possible activity besides playing is smoking and drinking, and only when I'm crafting etc. Or playing IWAY lol.

Honestly speaking, I don't have TV, in fact I moved it out of the house. I can't stress enough how much I despise the fracken smiling' imbeciles poisoning me on it. For movies or series, I have another combo.

I can only imagine. I just have a cat, and she's bad enough.

I'm a full-immersion type myself, although I don't think OOC chat counts as immersion. Hey, crafting is tedious.

I listen to in-game music just long enough to check it out, then turn on my own (massive) jukebox. Except when I play Painkiller, which has the best soundtrack ever. EVER! Where's my stake gun?

Just been replaying that game again. It so makes up for the disappointment that was Doom 3.

If its an MMORPG I usually need my own music playing, and am usually talking on phone/ texting/ watching tv/ yelling at brother. That is until I get to PVP and need to focus more then I usually just listen to own music, though i keep games sound effects on and the music relatively low(which is still pretty loud).
FPS's need my full attention usually.

I've got my laptop fired up in addition to my gaming rig. I'm usually catching up on email, checking out forums, plotting world domination... you know, regular routine stuff.

My dog's usually at my feet under my desk and my own music playing. If I get into an especially hairy battle, I turn it up! If I'm on TS, then I'm totally concentrating in game...

Come to think of it, I have no idea what half the game music is like for some of the games I've played. There's always a trance/techno/DnB/house beat going thanks to digitally imported on winamp. In fact, there's one playing right now. . .

I'd love to be totally immersed, and get to be maybe 25% of the time. Family usually interceeds upon my gaming habbit...

I had to go for the Tv. It's always on. In retrospec I should have clicked on children too, but I'm not usually doing something in game important when the kids are awake, usually just crafting or something like that.

If only there was a moment in any part of my day where I didn't have to multi-task!

Between kids, wife, pets, second computer with loud speakers, TV, phone calls, IMs, e-mail, my work and, of course, stuffing my face with any snacks I get my hands on, its a miracle I manage to get anything done in-game LOL!

Of course, I can't give multi-tasking up...then I'd have no excuse for sucking so bad at GW
