There’s a saying I always try to remind myself of when it comes to staying up late to do anything (but especially to play games): Don’t stay up late to do anything you wouldn’t get up early to do. And that rule of thumb works great right up until… you start getting up early to play games. Joke’s on you, sappy saying, I can wreck my sleep both ways!
But it’s true, I’ve found myself getting up a little bit earlier lately so I can log into a specific MMO before work, usually to set up my factories for the day so they’re humming along printing salable goods in the virtual world all day while I’m out here working in the real world. We’re not talking more than 30 minutes or so, but it’s been a long while since I willingly rolled out of bed before my alarm, and it’s been kinda fun.
Have you ever given up sleep for MMOs? Are you more likely to sacrifice sleep at night or in the morning?
