Time for me to "grow up?"

Alright guys, this came about on monday night...

The wife went out with one of her friends, and she was gone for 4 hours.

SO I was like - SWEET!! I can play Madden on my 360 and drink as much Amberbock as I want with no distractions...

When she got home, she was cool but I just felt like it may be time for me to grow up.

Im 25 working on a Masters, and married. Have a good paying job @ 45k, own a 235k house, 2 bikes, and 3 Labs...

I play the 360 atmost 5 hours a week.

Is it time for me to quit playing silly video games?

THANKS!

if you have the time and enjoy it, I guess it's cool. I just don't know how anyone over 13 can find time for video games

dude, i so messed up on the pole. If you got the time man, and the wife is cool with it..HELL YES!! play some games. Don't feel bad about it either. There are so many newer and better stuff out there than what was around when we were in the target demographic. Not only that, but there are a lot of games out there geared toward the older guys like us. Do you realy think that vidoe game companies expect a dad to pay $600 for a PS3 and not play it themselves?

Hey you can combine 2 intrests and pick up "Tourist Trophy" for PS2. It's gran trouismo for crotch rockets!!

it could be worse.....I am not quite sure how...but I am sure it could be worse.
