I can't help it. Every year when I finish school I have an urge--a compulsion--to play video games. I just completed my first year of graduate school and it hasn't changed a bit. I don't know if it's a reward or a way of winding down or just a method to kill time..but there you have it.
In a spirit of "If you can't beat it, join it," here are my all-time favorite video games series:
5. Warcraft4. Final Fantasy
3. Super Mario Bros.
2. The Legend of Zelda
1. Super Smash Bros.
(An honorable mention to Tetris/Dr. Mario)
