Talking Point: Have You Ever Taken A 'Day Off' For Something Xbox Related?

We came across a news story this week about a middle-aged Scottish woman who takes multiple days off work per-year to play Xbox games, and we have to admit, we're struggling to see why that's such a big deal!

Maybe it's because we're all obsessed with Xbox ourselves, but we've certainly taken days off work in the past to enjoy brand-new releases that we've been looking forward to, and we know that plenty of Xbox fans also like to clear their schedules for E3 (or Summer Game Fest) week when all the major gaming showcases are taking place.

And to be honest, we've even taken Xbox-related days off when there's not really a good reason to! Who needs a reason?! Sometimes you just want to chill out in front of the TV and forget about work for a while...

So, with this bizarre story in mind, we're interested to know if you have ever taken a day off for something Xbox related. Does a specific game come to mind? We'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic down in the comments below.

If you're curious about that news story, here's what the fan had to say about her "staycation of gaming":

"I've always been a nerd and I love it. I tell my co-workers about my staycation of gaming. I don't use my annual leave for anything else important. It's definitely worth the days off."
