When Grand Theft Auto IV launched I nearly missed a midterm. Basically I'm saying it's easier to ditch school than it is to not play a game you've been hotly anticipating for months on end.

That hype, that anticipation. It can drive us to do some stupid stuff, like forgetting to pick up our kids from school. I've never done that, but if you have, please share that shame in the comments below.

Have you ever stayed home sick from work or school for a new game?
