Let’s face it, we don’t have enough time to game. When we grow up to be responsible (ahem) adults, life gets in the way. We have to go to work, commute, clean our houses, water our plants (unless you’ve read this article and bought gamer-friendly plants), prepare food (or go out for dinner), interact with our partners, take care of our furry friends, hug our kids… You get the picture. When you are a teenager or a student, you don’t have as many responsibilities and there is a LOT more time to game. Also, for some reason, when you are a teenager or an adolescent, you apparently don’t need as much sleep. Gaming ‘till 01.00 am was totally fine a few years ago, even when I had to get up at 7.00am to go to work. Now,I stay up ‘late’ when I make it past my bedtime of 22.30pm … and the repercussions are harsh.
