So I'm on the tram this morning, eavesdropping on casino workers. "I spent my holiday playing Xbox." "With your flatmate?" "No, not this time." So he's a repeat vacation gamer. I'd never waste a holiday like that, I thought smugly to myself. And then I remembered.
Rather more years ago than I care to recall, I took a few days off and headed north with a friend to her parents' holiday house. In theory, we were there to enjoy the surrounds. In reality, I spent most of the time working my way through the original Crash Bandicoot. And it was a great holiday. Thinking back, I've rarely felt so relaxed.
So tell us dammit — have you ever taken a holiday with the express intention of doing nothing but playing games, or found yourself drawn to your console even when other activities beckoned?
