    Now we all know as hardcore gamers that there are certain shared tendencies and similarities. Whether its turning up to work with a ‘gaming hangover’ or swinging the controller around to aid in movement – we all do it and should take pride in our habits.

    Diagnosis:

    The “Hoarding” habit occurs when the player of a video game is faced with an abundance of items.

    The habit itself is an obsessive compulsion to constantly pick up certain items to store (whether you will use them or not). It specifically applies to medicinal items, ammo and other useful objects.
    In my case, medicinal items trump all other items.

    So do you succumb to the same habit? Perhaps you like to hoard other items or don’t hoard at all! Please leave your comments and opinions below!

      Haha so true! I’ve been “hoarding” anything and everything on Dead Island recently and I just refuse to sell any of the items. Great game by the way if anyone who reads this hasn’t tried it out, especially fun after a bad day at work. Just pretend one of the zombies is your employer before you hack them to… I’ll leave it there actually considering the current economic climate we live in. Ahem.

      Armor. Definitely armor. Like in Dragon Age. It may not be the best armor around, but if it looks cool, I’ll keep it. Like the Ancient Elf Armor in Origins. I’ll also keep boots or something around until I’ve found the rest of the armor. Leading to me walking around in one set, with three others in my inventory that I’ll probably never even use because. Wether they’re better or not.

      Does keeping players on FIFA even though they never get to play count too? Because I do that a lot too..

      Ammo – even for weapons I don’t – or never even intend to – use. It’s like I’m trying to second guess the game, like there’s an ultimate weapon somewhere out there that’ll require a particular form of ammo so I’m loathe to part with any.

      Also, any weapon/armour that has a unique name – again, even if I never actually utilise weapons/armour of that kind. I guess I want my character to have a personal collection of the rarest artifacts within a given world.
