I’ve travelled to Australia and Japan to play with silly little pieces of cardboard.
At a 72 hour lan I fell asleep and apparently kept playing until I slid off my chair. Woke up and wondered why my mouse hand was still twitching and how I had managed to get underneath my computer. (went back to playing straight away of course).
I’ve never pre ordered anything, though i have had wrestling matches with my brother to see who could play with the game-gear for the next hour.
I’m sure there are plenty more…
