Hmmm, that was during my second college try. My live-in girlfriend bought a NES that came with 'Duck Hunt' and 'Super Mario Bros'. I'd say it was partly to blame for declining grades that led to a 10 year stint on a production floor through the 90s. Good money, lot's and lot's of overtime, but a poor work/life balance and very little time to play games. (years of 12 hour shifts with every other Sunday off) I wouldn't play games again until I went back to school with a hand-me-down power mac that I must have rebuilt a few dozen times.

On the topic of Mario, I remember the character from playing Donkey Kong at the arcades during my high school years. Super Mario Bros was/is an awesome waste of time. Several years back I found a windows version that I have stashed somewhere...might not even run on 10. The only game I play these days are a Sudoku every day or so.

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
