    Hmm, I don't think you should cut gaming out altogether, but I agree with others about perhaps focusing the game-fix on a quicker game. Or time yourself so you only spend an hour on a game.

    I've had to deny myself a lot of extra-curricular fun while focusing on school. I'm beginning to feel that it drains me of the excitement I used to have about drawing. When that happens, my work goes to shit. You need a break of some sort!

    About the GF--she doesn't draw or play games? That's a shame. My fiancee and I will spend all day together in our studio working on projects. Now that I've got a week out of school, I've been making him play some old-school hot seat games with me. XD

    SirGreenSock - Nice program. I downloaded it just after you posted.

    Also agree with Slash and Mirana. Some games are entartaining but don't eat much time. Usually when they have gameplay divided into short levels or matches. For example recenly I played minimalistic freeware platformer called N. It has one hundret of short but quite difficult levels. If I can't win some I just give up and try it another day so it's not very addictive .

    If you want to concentrate on drawing anything with a screen and flashy lights is your enemy. If you absolutly need a MMO, play guild wars, it's storyline is pretty short and theres really not much to do in the game after you've beaten it, untill expansions come out at least. I say go for drawing first, GF second and if there's any spare time in there stick in a game or two that don't require a huge commitment like a FPS or non-online RPG.

    mmorpg killed my drawing skills cause... I'd play more then I'd draw in a day. =/

    Pretty much my drawing skilled uped cause I quit playing that game.Most of the time I'd do in those games to talk to people and sit intown and chats anyways. xD

    Anyways I play those player fighting games if I want to get out the stress. =]

    drawing first. then gf. then games.

    I heard of people actually dying caused they played so much EverQuest they forgot to eat. Or in another case someone supposedly killed themselves because their character was erased somehow... What dumbass epitaphs those must have been.

    The girl friend is a needed factor.
    Drawing is a needed factor.
    MMO's are an optional factor.

    If you are struggling to maintain all 3, lose the MMO. If you give up the girl for a video game, you're a dumbass. If you give up drawing for a girl or an MMO, im going to hunt you down and do unspeakable things. Realistically you should pick entertainment which does not conflict with major life factors. This why i always say... MMO's are the devil. I have good reason to say so.

    All work and no play makes jack a dull boy, but all play and no work will leave you with no money and no skills.
    Muahaha!!!

    Well I play both Guild Wars and Ragnarok Online and I admit that the later can get quite addictive, mainly cause of the friends you can make in-game, if you don't socialize in-game in MMO's they get booring fast.. and if you feel you can't stop palying a game just play it nonstop until you get so sick of it you never want to see it again (did that made me physically throw out 3 games...)... but seriously games are nice and everything, but only if you feel you got the time for it.. and when you got the time for it...

    I myself am quite unemployed and only got school once a week so I got all the time in the world (it feels like) to waste on games and other things.. but then I have no life..

    GW is addictive the first week or so then it gets old fast.. but if you want an MMO you won't get stuck in for way to many hours then yea it's good.. and it actually has a decent story line to it
