    He gets home at 4:45 and plays until 2a.m. easy and if he gets bored he just pick up another game. He plays wow, day of defeat, moon-gate, battle field, and guitar hero. He has weekends off and they are dedicated to gaming no matter what. I have attempted to discuss it, but he gets angry and I feel like a nag. I hate feeling that way. I hate talking to him just to find out that for the last 10 minutes he has been raiding and has totally missed everything I said."
