2001 : Video Games
On July 12, my gaming world irrevocably changed, hurtling me towards a new high in gaming hours in a year. On that day, I received my Playstation 2 and Gran Turismo 3 bundle pack that I had pre-ordered from EB World.
At that point in the year, I was averaging about 52 minutes (and 31 seconds) of video gaming each day. I was on my way to a record low. With the PS2, the rest of the year (173 days) averaged a gaudy 1 hour and 45 minutes each day. And so by December 31, after playing Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty way into the night at my cousin's house in Virginia, I finished with a record average 77 minutes and 31 seconds video gaming per day.
