I live in Joplin, MO. As many of you know, we had a massive tornado go through our town. It killed a lot of people. I was planning to be in downtown Joplin right where the tornado hit when I left work that Sunday afternoon around 3:00. I stopped by my house at 3:30, had something to eat and was going to head towards Academy to pick up some stuff. Instead I decided my time would be better spent playing Black Ops. I logged in around 4:30 that afternoon. The tornado came through and hit Academy directly around 5:30, as well as 30 percent of town. I had no clue what had happened until the power kicked me off the game. I feel that my love for Black Ops may have saved my life that day.-Clinton
Pokemon Snap used to give me motion sickness, but I would play it anyway. It would get to the point that I had to sit with my head between my knees to avoid throwing up. Every damn time.-Chris
When I was a kid, I had caught 'em all in Pokemon Blue. I even went to a big event at the mall where you could get Mew added to your game. My parents drove me 2 hours to get it. When we got home my brother saved over my file on purpose. To this day I still resent him and we never talk.-Moheeb
