    I really haven't been playing much at all. Doesn't help that the FPS sucks with macbook pro.

    I played HC in D2, and I'm sure I'll get into it soon enough here. I did really enjoy it back then. For me, gaming is a really social thing... So I'm doing what my friends are doing. None of them are really into HC yet. But I, frankly, intend on playing this game for a goooooooood long time, so I'm in no rush.

    *shrug* I've been able to game for hours and hours without breaks since I was a kid. And ever since I was about 15-16 and got into online gaming... It's been worse. Especially with the introduction of MMOs into my life like Everquest, City of Heroes, and WoW.

    Someone was conversing with me about this in Vent, and suggested that that kind of gaming is well suited toward IxTJ's. I find that believable. I think I'd type many of the guys I game with regularly as INTJs.

    finally made it through hell! snagged some absolutely dirt-cheap gear before I started act iv which made act iv pretty much a joke, basically glass-cannoning but usually managing to avoid dying anyway. monk survivability. It's kinda too bad that you can buy decent gear for so very cheap that the drops aren't anywhere near as good, but maybe that'll change in inferno as the drops get better.

    I predict lots of dying in inferno. Looking forward to it.

    Where are you buying gear? Auction house or blacksmith?

    Oh, AH. blacksmith is worthless. I can get items for 1-5k on the AH that blow blacksmith and drops both out of the water, with enough persistence. I expect that will change as I develop the need for better gear in inferno, but for now it's working well.

    Aren't you beta testing Guild Wars 2? You don't play that for more than 2 hours at a time given how excited you were for it? When I played MMOs I would play for more than 2 hours at a stretch, sometimes you have to if you are doing an event or instance with a group.

    Having said that, I lack the perseverance for MMOs. I have never made it close to the 'endgame' in any of the ones I've tried.

    I loved Diablo II. Can't wait to try III! *Giggity*

    Well, maybe it's because I'm from the old arcade game era, where you had to start all over if you died. But hardcore is one bit adrenaline rush for me. And losing items? They are just some pixels on your screen man. It's unhealthy to get attached to ingame items in my opinion. Just see them as a means to an end, nothing more. xD
    For some reason, this sounds classic INTP gamer to me...

    I am beta testing Guild Wars 2, but I still can't play that game for more than 2 hours at a time. That's not to say that I can't play for 6 hours or so in a day, but that play time has to be spread out. If I don't spread it out, I get this intense feeling like I'm missing something (the real world).
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I feel a bit annoyed actually because I keep buying games like Diablo 3, play them obsessively for about 3 weeks then drop them, only to be played sporadically.

    Strange because as a child and a teenager I had that same focus @Patches mentions about being able to just play for hours.
