Graph: Hours Played of Sports Video Game vs. Shame, By Age

gRAPH

The author, a person in his mid-30s, has recently (i.e. today) allocated what might reasonably be called a “shameful” number of his waking hours to a sports-related video game. What video game — or even what sport, precisely — is beside the point. The point is that the author has also hastily fashioned, by way of free graphics-editing software, the graph pictured here, which depicts certain findings the author has found.

Dirty, dirty science, is what we have on all our hands now.

Bike polo, actually. Portland style.

I can personally confirm that if you extend the graph out to age 45, you will start to see a bell curve emerge, as the shame once again plummets toward zero.

It’s definitely OOTP, except that I have played that for hours upon hours straight with NO shame whatsoever.

Football Manager, the slayer of one’s leisure time. The question, for me at least, is if Carson has taken control of Swansea, ousting handsome Michael Laudrup?

I think it’s clear that he was playing Quidditch World Cup.
