Yeah, this is my attitude. I would rather decide to stay awake for night instead of having to give up on a certain game. There are people that will always feel that they can't just allow you beat them on some game especially the online game and this is something we should work well as regards...
I have been playing Top Eleven football manager and I have to confess that the years that I have spent playing the game is never a waste. Actually, there are still managers that are in the game that you can't just let things down without playing it.
I have played the Angry Birds on Sega and it was all fun through out the time that I spent playing it. The way that some of the people that I know spend time playing the game back in those days made it an exciting one for all of us.
I would never say that people are wasting their money on a particular game. The thing is that our passion for a game can never be the same with others and for those playing this game, it is because of the love that they have for it.
Playing games on the PC is just as better as what you have on your normal game consoles. The only downside is that you are going to have issue of space of memory when you are playing it with a PC that you use for other needs.
I like the way you ended things in the sense that it is simply a phase of life for every gamer to take it too serious and later adjust in life. I wish everyone will see it from that angle to realize that it is never a big deal for us who enjoy gaming.
Playing the game was pretty difficult for me as well as I was made to take so much time in order to learn it. However, it was a success at last as I become a pro. I would advise you search for some clips of it on the internet.
This is a pretty old thread but reading about Van Gaal brought about some difficult old times for me. It is something that I didn't really felt comfortable seeing him handle the positions till he left the club. He is not the type of manager that we need at the club.
You are really lucky to be working for a boss that understand the thing that work is all about. I mean when the boss knows that aside from work, that we are all humans, I wonder what will make the work not to be going as planned.
Trying to avoid conflict with the boss is also very good as long as the boss is someone that understands that it is also better not to go into conflict as well. Some bosses at work can be an issue and we should try to be mindful how we relate with them.
