Was you ever obsessed with something in your younger days (6-15 years)? If so, what was it, how you became obsessed with it and did you ever put an end to this obsession?

I was once a MASSIVE of the Final Fantasy when I was around 10-11. Then, as I grew older, I grew apart from it. I also used to watch my friend play Kingdom Hearts on his PS2 and I was like, "KH is for 3 year olds, FF is for 12 year olds!" I hated the game. I became obsessed when I "apparantly" had the entire series since I was 4 and loved it. So I went and brought FFX in-store and I couldn't believe how amazing it was! Nowadays, I seem to be growing apart from this obsession until I pick up FFXIII.

I used to be obsessed with TR up until AOD, after that my excitement for newer games in the series just died. Uh as for tv shows that I couldn't stop watching there was Buffy. Music wise there was Linkin Park, Evanescence,

Don't have any now of course lmao.

Dinosaurs. This eventually evolved into dragons.

I still hold all the info I learned about the dinosaurs though, so at least I have that.

I have and will always be obsessed with video games. It was always my escape from being bullied and pressured and now it still is today, though I no longer get bullied.

Oh NES, you saved me a load of emotions. :P

This is still an obsession of mine: I'm really delighted when I see my sister playing AoD because I don't have any real life person to talk to about TR games. I have my best friend, but she likes the TR comedies and glitches etc etc not the series :D

The only childish part about it is the Disney worlds, but even then that's part of it's charm. It's actually very complex for something that has to do with Disney.

That's the battle music for Twilight Town.

I just wouldn't let go of that show. I didn't stop watching till I was 9, and then I starting watching "All Grown Up" (the continuation of Rugrats :)). Plus, if I ever get home from school early, and nothing's on, I'll still go onto Nicktoons and watch the last ten minutes... :o

Prehistory. I was am such a nerd. I was the only child who used to borrow anthrology books from library for summer breaks. Ive got so many books because there werent books I didnt have so I received some of them twice or even more! Dinosaurs were all over the place -everyone used to give them to me. I knew so much about it - 90% of my knowledge is gone. :(

And of course, could anyone forget their Pokemon obsession? It all started for me when I saw the TV show the morning it debuted. It went all crazy from there. xD

My brother was obsessed with Runescape and I was obsessed with Habbo Hotel. :o Also an online game that's been offline for a bit now called Sissyfight. :ton:

Other than that I was [am] obsessed with Batman. Only the cartoon, though, the comics went a bit over my little 7-year-old head at the time. Also, I think it's funny that my brother was obsessed with Batman and Madonna when he was like 4, now look what happened. :pi:

I've was obsessed with tomb raider when i was six, i drew pictures of her, i beat all the games without walkthroughs (by the time i was about 10) Im not even close to being obsessed with her now, partly because of the fact people would call me wierd lol, and because tomb raider has kind of lost its flair. BUT I continue to draw Lara to this day and it has helped me draw people ALOT! :D

Oh, I went through several phases as a child. The first was music. I would pretend I was a conductor and wave a stick in the air to music. Then probably came insects. After which were sharks and dinosaurs. Then Star Wars. And finally, till today, Batman.

Was you ever obsessed with something in your younger days (6-15 years)? If so, what was it, how you became obsessed with it and did you ever put an end to this obsession?

-My first "girlfriend" (I was like 5 lol) Never seeing her again was the end of the obsession!
-Stealing stuff (I was 5 too lmao) Getting caught ended it.
-Tomb Raider (It started when I was like 6/7) I'm still a fan. But I'm no longer obsessed with TR.
-Garbage (I listened to Version 2.0) This obsession will never end.

19-01-10, 08:12
Oh when I was lil I was obsessed with plenty of stuff.

Salior Moon- I would dress up has her and throw my Tiara around saying "Salior Moon Power!!" (yup even down the main street in the town/city we lived in :D)

Sonic- I had wanted to have 3 kids and name them: Sonic, Tails and Knuckles (I was 6 at the time)
and then there was me and my friends "crew" lols. We all had our own nicknames. One was Tails, One was Knuckles, One Was Sonic, I was Shadow, and there was one more. (we were 13/14 at the time :pi:

Harry Potter- My friend and I had our own Harry Potter club. We actually made our own brooms and wands, got black sheets and used them as cloaks, dressed in Red and play Harry Potter :p and we would store our Brooms and wands in the back of the class room in the "Broom Cupboard" yes thats right we ran around the school like that :p (was about 12/13)

Music- aparently even as a infant I was obbsessed with music. Wouldnt go to sleep unless they played certain songs ( MC Hammer FTW :p) and I still am. I remember onetime I was threatend that my MP3 player was going to be taken off me and I burst into tears...lame I know....but to me music is my life line.
Some musical obbsessions were MC Hammer, Spice Girls, Evanesance, Metallica ect and some fade over time but one that has never faded since I first heard her song in 2000, Is Nelly Furtado (ftw) I can safely say that I am still addicted to her music :D (hence why some of my mates call me furtado freak :p

Gaming. I have loved gaming. I remember using a really old console that used cartiges (spelling I know) and the few games you could play were stuff like ping pong :D
then was my PS1 and my Sega :p I loved most games in generall


any way thats my essay over and done with :tea:

My main obsessions:

1995 - The game Doom. It was the first game i ever played, and is, and forever will be my all time favourite game. I still play even now, i can never EVER get bored of it.

1996 - My Sega Megadrive II, i played it non-stop for years afterwards, and i still have it to this day, 14 years later. It's almost as old as some members here, probably even older. Favourite games are the Streets Of Rage series.

1998/9 - Sonic the Hedgehog, then Tomb Raider, then Pokémon cards.

After this, i generally had no on-going obsessions. Right now i'm not obsessive with any particular thing, but i like to keep/maintain everything that meant something to me years ago, like my Sega Megadrive for example.
