    To be honest, I used to get so addicted to my Cyclo that my grades started to suffer as a result of it. When I tried to put it away for a few weeks, I began to see a steady increase in my grades. Looks like I got addicted to that flashcart really fast. [​IMG]

    The only game that has ever affected me school work was Super Mario Galaxy, and that was because I played it for two days straight. What DOES affect my school work is texting, watching TV, and spending too much time on stupid internet forums.

    Not at all. I haven't touched my DS in a week now. I'll probably pick it up again when Kirby comes out.

    Oh yes, but in both ways. It keeps me from being my absolute best, but at the same time, it gives me something to do when my frustrations get too strong and I need to do something BUT schoolwork.

    Double-edged sword, hehe.

    Yes it affects my schoolwork. Everytime i get my test back i see numbers and i think oohh 9/10, just one more experience points to level up. And i see those red pen marks that has an X, oh man i just got hit : (.
    And i team up with a partner to finish some project, and i let him do the work while i make magic in the background to support him (turn on some music).

    LOL jk.

    I think procrastination in general affects your schoolwork. If you're playing video games, watching TV, or doing anything but concentrating on your work when you should, it's going to affect it.

    Not like playing the games exactly, since i dont play that much
    but like. checking up on game forums like GBAtemp
    and like making youtube vids for them
    those will make me procrastinate
    and that will make me do not as good as if i had done homework earlier

    Not really. Im working on my homework 6 hours after I get out of school. The only problem though is that time is stretched because I get distracted with GBAtemp.

    Looking at my son, I think the answer would be "schoolwork? oh yeah that's that annoying crap that's constantly interupting my WoW gaming".

    not really, if i weren't playing games i'd just find something else to do instead of schoolwork. like i'm doing right now (i'm in the the middle of a class right now doing "research")

    Nah, I barely play games as it is at the moment and I always just go to the library to do homework or study, so I can't do anything else.
