That was kinda how I explained it to him.
He's 21. So far one of our friends have the game, and my bro just got it. My hubby wants it, and I would like to try it as well.
I don't know if it can be any more addictive then Sims Online, or The Sims 2, or any other game out there. I am sure after a while people will burn themselves out.
As for divorces... I understand some people take things a bit to seriously, and perhaps those men just weren't meant to be married in the first place. It's sad to think that two people will let something as small as a game get in the way of their relationship. If the game is breaking them up, perhaps they weren't as in love as they thought they were.
My hubby goes into things whole heartedly. He just got over an addiction to GTA Vice city. He played it for days on end. He was staying up late, getting up early to go to work, then getting grumpy from lack of sleep. Eventually he burned himself out. So now... he's back to my normal hubby. It goes both ways though. I just got over a major addiction to The Sims2. I am currently fighting it. I got so addicted to making clothes for TS2, that while he was stealing cars, and killing people, I was modifying every outfit I could find.
I guess if you've got more then one computer, and a hub, and cable net, getting addicted to a game isn't so bad. Hubby and I have been addicted to the same game, Diablo II, and Dungeon keeper2. I think it would be really fun to be addicted to an online game together though. I never could get him into TSO(sims online).
When ever peoploe get divorced, I always figure that the relationship wasn't strong in the first place. After all, if two people TRUELY LOVED each other, and wanted to make their marriage work, they WOULD work at it. NOT sit there and let a game control their lives. Hubby and I, no matter how addicted we are to any game, usually will stop, or pause to listen to each other. Perhaps there is more wrong with the relationship then just a game?
(JUST MY OPINION based on people I've known my whole life)
Heidi, thankyou for moving this thread, I'd had second thoughts about the placement of it after I posted it.
