No, I save my days off for important things. True story the last personal day I took was for the Super Bowl Parade. The rest are usually for weddings or urgent doctors appointments.

To be fair though, I only get to keep two personal days into next year and I get paid over $100 at the end of the year for each one I don’t use so a day at home playing games isn’t worth it to me:
I just changed my signature because the Eagles won the Super Bowl!

I don't think so... then again, I make my own schedule, so I can work around releases if I'm that fired up. I don't remember the last time I did it, though.

I also might have played sick in high school to play Doom 2, but I honestly don't remember if I was really sick or not. My ma was a nurse so I couldn't usually get away with that sort of thing.

Yes, but it was more for the people than the game itself. Everybody else was off (i had school) and I elected to skip that day of classes in favor of the arcade road trip.

I have done it plenty of times and will continue to do so. This year I will do it for only 2 possible games though. Last of Us 2 and Resident Evil 2 Remake. I have 5 weeks worth of vacation/personal days off.

Never intentionally though I may have actually fallen sick on the day before/of coincidentally. My schedule has me on a rotation where I'm off Tues, Sat, Sun one week, and Wed, Thurs, Fri the following so I'm pretty much always off the day of/after anyway.

Yes I have. More than once. Haven’t done it in awhile though.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just like, uh, your opinion, man- The Dude

I skipped a week of college classes to play Guitar Hero 2! Loved that game!

First time was Fable.. then TES:Oblivion.. then Halo 2. Those were all in Middle/High School.

I don't recall ever missing work for a video game, but I'm sure Ive certainly requested PTO for video game launches.

I used to skip school sometimes to play a game on launch day all day. Now I can't really afford to miss work for that but I dont have a great job.
Currently playing: GoW: UE, MGS V, Arkham Knight and The Witcher 3.
