I never have before. But I'm considering skipping a lecture next week to buy and play the Skyrim Dragonborn DLC.

Own up, gamers!

No, only people that need to grow up do this.

Not just to play games. Usually if I'm sick or something, gaming is what I do anyway, so that's naturally what I do instead of work or whatever.

I'm doing it next week. Just taking PTO next Monday since I havent taken one since August and I worked New Year's day. I feel pooped. Maybe I wont do anything. Maybe I'll finish Persona 4 Golden or play Football Manager the whole day. Maybe I wont do anything at all. The possibilities are endless. I cant wait.

I've never called off for the reason to play games, but I usually end up playing video games if I call off.

Nope. If I take a day off of work it's to actually go somewhere and do something. I won't even call out if I'm sick, because to me it's a waste of a day.
Go, then.....there are other worlds than these.

When I was in high school I skipped school one day to play through FFX (it came out my freshman year, 2001), but that's the only time I can remember skipping specifically to play a game.

I'm 25 now and work is far more important than a game I can play when I'm off. If I don't get to play a game today, oh well. If I lose my job, I'm f*****. Don't be stupid.

I would if I was in the dark

Loads of times. In fact probably every single time a major release comes out, with the exception of if I absolutely had to be there (such as an interview, exam - things like that).

I get 'ill' at the most convenient of times!
