    Your ****ing gift of EU3 got me a stern reprimand at work for playing on company hours.

    I used to play loads of that game. One time I played as Denmark and conquered all of Scandinavia, then formed the country "Scandinavia" and colonized Greenland and Canada.

    I had a great game going in HTTT as holland where I had all of south america by 1650. Then I decided to install Divine Wind and now I'm not able to get past 1450 without Burgundy or France reaming me.

    Is it really such a challenge to refrain from playing computer games when you're at work?

    Rhetorical questions about restraint on a forum that get's most of its traffic by people posting from work during work hours.

    It's not a rhetorical question. I don't go anywhere near sites like this at work, let alone play games.

    How many of those three might just be adversely affected by you getting caught playing games at work again?

    Well, first, pull that cactus out of your ass, and you might learn to lighten up and become more laid back.

    Are you promoting playing computer games at work as some sort of lifestyle enhancement? Because I think I'll stick to playing them on my own time and thereby avoiding jeopardising my career- which helps fund my family.

    This is part of being an adult, you see? If you worked with me and I knew you were playing computer games at work, I'd cheerfully get you fired.
