I can't play a game without thinking about its implementation details anymore :(/>


I'm the same way for websites, but is that really a “bad habit”, though? It's just being curious. I like knowing how things work.


At the expense of enjoying the game? :)

I've always had an analytical mind for one reason or another so i suppose that is why coding, for the most part, comes so naturally to me.

One thing that i have noticed though is that I tend to try and be as efficient as possible like planning my trip so it operates in a circular manner and hitting all the stops in order without having to backtrack.....I even wrote a small program that lets you pick items you want to buy in Wal-Mart and then it sorts and prints them out in the order they are in the store so that you can just go in one side of the store and walk around getting everything you need without having to go back for things..... ;)/>


Wow, I honestly find that interesting, and very efficient. If that were in walmart, it would be so much easier to shop instead of running into someone every 2 seconds.

Rushing into solutions is still my biggest problem. The thrill of having a working piece of code is something I need to learn to stave off.
