I have to admit that this was difficult as I have never really been a video gamer...Jason only really plays sports games while I edit. :)

I truly don't understand those who get so obsessed with video games that they neglect living their lives, but hey...to each his own I guess! We have so little junk food in the house... I would imagine gamers don't eat yogurt. :P

"I truly don't understand those who get so obsessed with video games that they neglect living their lives"

Just came across this, after seeing your The Reader, The Listener and the Daydreamer image. As an avid gamer, I think video games get this view from non gamers too often. And while being obsessed with anything to the point you neglect other aspects of your life isn't healthy, this also applies to TV, reading and even photography. How you described reading, is exactly what games are to many people. The stories told in some games now easily match the best I've read in a book or seen in a movie. In some ways even surpassing those mediums because you're playing an active role in that story being told.

I can't speak for others, but I know I ate lots of yogurt while playing ;-) Very fun entry Samantha, I love the green cast that immediately grasps the eye towards Jason's hallucination. Very clever choice of game too! Congrats on the nice finish.

A totally different concept as the ones above you in this challenge, but a very pleasing photograph.
