Which video game by the way? I hate to say it though, but I don't think video game addiction is an excuse. I played World of Warcraft through pharmacy school, and I was one of the top assassination rogues in my realm, PvP and PvE and all that stuff and I did alright. And I'm about to start playing hardcore Diablo 3 when it comes out next week, even though I should be studying for the boards.
It actually was World of Warcraft. WotLK had just come out and instead of studying at night, I would come home and play WoW for 4-5 hours at a time for the entire week. Staying up to 1 or 2 am playing games, when I had class at 8 a.m., usually meant I skipped a class or two in the morning because I was so tired.
Ironically, I passed all the difficult classes ( Med chem, biopharmaceutics, pharmacokinetics,), but failed a special populations series on Geriatrics, another class by not turning in a research paper and then skills lab.
Thanks for the advice everyone.
