Beer. Any college problem can be solved with beer.

Ignore the studying, or whatever task is at hand. Focus on the video game.

What game are you hung up on at the moment? I get hung up on the stupidest games, and I can't quit until I've completely beaten them, in the best way possible.

Last month, it was Final Fantasy 1 for NES.

Now it's Castlevania: Curse of Darkness for X-Box. I'm totally hooked.

Nope, I never saw WarMech, or a T-Rex in the desert. Disappointing.

FF1, 2, and 3 were some of my favorite games as a kid. I'd really like to go back and beat 2 and 3 now, but those games are huge.

I played FF7 for a few hours and gave up.. I'd really like to try one of the newer ones. How many of the others have you played, Dan?
