"Boss Nass I'm taking the day off, GTAV is out."
"I'm sorry Mr. Smith, but Mr. Nass has taken the day off due to the release of GTA5."

So basically, asking for who deserves to lose their job.

Anyone who uses any of their vacation days should be fired immediately.

Sadly, that's the mindset of a lot of companies in the US. Oh, you didn't get that raise and Johnson did? Shouldn't have used up all your vacation taking care of your sick mother.

I've never specifically taken a day off for a game or hardware but my vacation has coincided with a game's release or delivery of new hardware a few times.

Then you should vote for either the second or the third last option.

I personally don't think it's bad to take annual leaves for gaming. That's what annual leaves are for; you're mandated certain amount of days in a year to take your leave for whatever reason.

...Just that it would suck if you work in shifts, and you are forced to work extra time for days because one of your co-workers went on leave to play games from the worst company you ever known. lol
