What are some obsessions and near-obsessions that you used to have? Some of mine would be:

- The Sims games

- Space Channel 5 games

- Taking my pulse (due to a traumatic hospital experience)

- Food and cuisine (including cooking and baking)

- Nutrition

- Alice in Wonderland (though this may have been more of a fascination)

- Disney movies and other Disney things

How about you? :D

Wow, that's freaky. All of these (yes, including Sailor Moon :D) except I'm still addicted to them. :p Oh! And tigers, of course! :D

I used to be addicted to Final Fantasy in the past, but not so much anymore. I still like the games, just not as much as TR. :ton:

Get Out.

Final Fantasy chews up TR and spits it out the window.

lol I'm kidding. :D

You better be. :mis:

I agree that FF games are better than TR in so many ways (FF14 certianly isn't, though. I would like to spit that out of a window), but there's something that TR has that FF will never have: Lara Croft! :D

Well, when I was a kid there was a period where I was obsessed with Dragon Ball Z, I'd even skip school to watch it. But that was more of a fad, really, as every other kid my age was the same!

Tomb Raider (of course) was also one, when I played it for the first years, with TR3, then TRs 2 and 1. I still think of those days with some nostalgia. :(

In my teens I had another period where I was obsessed with The Clash and anything to do with them. They're still my favourite band.

Right now, I'd say my biggest obsession is probably Bioshock. I'm constantly replaying the games, and when I'm not, I'm writing about them, or even painting. It's crazy.

And finally, football. I've watched it since I was a kid, and it comes and goes in different degrees of interest, but the passion is always there. Right now my football obsession is Real Madrid. :p

Obsessed with reading Janny Wurts's Wars of Light and Shadow books. Not usually an obsession prone person, not obsessed with any of her other books, but something about that series just caught my imagination and will not let go! Fortunately early next year the next book comes out, otherwise I would wear these ones out before getting the next instalment.

Gamewise I've been obsessed with Uncharted and Uncharted 2 lately :p I haven't had as much fun with a game(series) in a long time, maybe since I was heavy into Tomb Raider.
Chloe Frazer :pi:
I'm also an avid fan of TV shows House and Castle :p Never miss an episode :o

Then in the book world I'm a huge fan of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt series, I have just about every book(and there's quite a few :o) and I've read them all more than a few times.

Stepping into the realm of food, if you serve me Fettuccine Alfredo there will be none left when I'm finished :p

Good catch. :D

A while I had been reading really too much.

Now the only "obsession" is probably TR usermade games.

You know the way they'd drone on and on about "THE DRAGONBALLZ(!!!)" left it hard for me to take seriously...


It's the first time I hear of a baby obsessed with TR :eek:

Heh... He grew out of it when he turned 5 though.

I always have to have some sort of music playing :)
It helps me concentrate and keeps me entertained and out of a bad mood

I pretty much listened to Country music exclusively until like 6th grade. :vlol: I still loves me some Shania Twain every now and then, dou. :p But the modern Country scene sucks; Taylor Swift can [nonsensical string of violent explicitives] for all I care. :pi: Then I listen to R&B (Ciara lol), then Punk/Emo, then now I'm kinda torn between Pop and Alt Rock. I got wholly obsessed with Madonna in 10th grade when 4 Minutes came out [I always assumed she had made a few hits in the 80s but had been gone from music for the most part :o]; Gaga was soon to follow.

As for non-music, I've been obsessed with TR and The Sims since middle school. The former [TR4 specifically] gave me an interest in ancient history, which I still pursue avidly, especially ancient Egyptian mythology. ;)

Yes, my mother said she got me into it when I was around one year old. :o Weird, but what harm could it do? At least, I can say I've grown up around it. :p

It's best to start young ;)

Haha!
