With Red Dead Redemption 2 releasing tomorrow I’m sure there will be a few people calling in a sick day or some leave to play it (except us PC gamers…)
I must admit I’ve never taken off work or had a “sick day” so that I could play a game. Generally I don’t tend to get games at release anyway.
How about you?
I’ve put in proper leave. For instance I took leave to play Diablo III back in the day only to find that it’s unplayable due to errors.
I just happened to take leave tomorrow to be at home as it’s “Mid-term break” for the schools. Just happens to be release day.
But I’ve taken leave before to play stuff on release day, and I’ve been horribly disappointed before

Nope, I’ll go through the proper channels and request leave if i know i’m going to play a video game on release.

Twice. Once for Destiny 2 release and the other time for NMS
Jip. I have taken leave to play a new game. Not called in “sick” tho. Just put in normal leave. I had leave planned for tomorrow, but then I got sick last week and I felt too bad being away for another day this week. So I will suck it up and play tomorrow evening.
Nope , would just take a proper leave day this reminds me of this when Witcher 3 came out
I’ve never done it, no. By the way, wasn’t this exact topic discussed not too long ago?
Your memory is better than mine, and apparently that of discourse because it didn’t come up with this topic in the list of similar threads. There was a thread on this topic created at the beginning of June. My apologies
Quite the opposite today. My boss has put in leave and I found Warcraft 3 on a hard drive so going to try that today
No need to apologise. Just had a huge sense of de-ja-vu in reading some of the replies in this thread.
I could do with another sick day today.
I wouldnt be able to play RDR2 though cos its getting delivered to my work address.

I havent taken a day off that wasnt given to me by the boss in over 10 years - we are not allowed to take leave during the year.

That doesn’t sound right. So you don’t earn accrued leave?

We only take leave during Builders Holidays - aka xmas - and we doget about 3 - 4 weeks.
But we cannot take extra time during the year
Never, I am an outstanding worker bee.
Yes! Medical certificate . . . Red Dead Redemption 2 . . . win win!
Busy installing now.

I wouldn’t worry too much. I sometimes think we stifled threads too much on mygaming just because they may have been duplicates. The posts must flow.
I haven’t taken off work to play a game. I’m not that hardcore.
