Between Torchlight 2 and Borderlands 2 I have racked up 120 hours of play time in less than a week. That's with working 10 hours a night for 4 of those days. Who needs sleep? I've got some serious gaming to do!
Ok, either you are gaming at work or I call bullshit -- since 120 + 40 = 160 hours of 168 in a week. I don't believe you went 7 days with only 8 hours of sleep. And that's ignoring time to travel to work, eat, dress, shower and bathroom trips.

Guilty... Torchlight 2 scales down nicely on my laptop at work. I'm sort of a firefighter in that I'm really only there to respond to trouble calls in the middle of the night. While I'm usually very busy the gaming gods must have smiled down on me because it was unusually quiet - I played about 2 to 3 hours a night last week. But I really have only been getting about 3 hours of sleep a day, so yeah, I'm tired. The numbers are on my Steam profile for anyone who really cares to check to make sure I'm not full of it. Seriously though, what do I have to gain by lying about it?

How do you fit a healthy lifestyle and relationship in there? Or were they abandoned long ago?

I work a crazy schedule where I work 8 days straight (10 or 12 hours a night) then I'm off for 6 days. My wife and I don't really see much of each other when I'm on shift work but we spend most of that 6 days off together. My daughter is a heavy gamer too so we are always spending time together. When a week like this past one comes around (2 huge releases close together that I want to dive into) I kind of give her forewarning. She is pretty understanding since it only happens once in a blue moon any more.
