    (For lack of better phrasing.)

    Have you ever been so absorbed by a game that you didn't (ever?) want to leave the game 'world' ? That is to say, you 'grind', explore every crevice, and purposely prolong the game because you don't want it to 'end' ?
    If so, which game(s) ?

    For me, it would be the GBA/DS Castlevanias, along with SOTN. It gets to a point where I don't even want to play anything else....rather odd, really. (I went into a compulsion like this when I first discovered Resident Evil 4 a few years back...I saved for the Unlimited Launcher, placed all the correct jewels in the treasures, etc..etc... over and over again.... like a depraved addict, to the point where I'll see buildings/natural settings and say "LOOK! Just like that area in Resident Evil!"
