make the 'gaming' part yellow and bigger, a pac-man reference will make more sense. Else it's just a pie chart... And 'else' is not spelled 'eles' :)

Regarding Pacman: I thought about it but did not go that route for the following reasons:

1). Google it and you will find endless pacman pie charts all saying "85% of pie charts look like pacman"

2). Threadless has had all previous pacman designs pulled due to copyright infringement.

I could present it as a donut chart to avoid the pacman association but would then need to rethink title.

Maybe other gaming circles could work? Chomps or pokeballs?

Or you could have classic gaming elements within the circle. Characters in the grey, food (like in Santo76's design) in the light grey, z's in the orange. I like the color scheme though, so maybe you could do all of those silhouetted in a darker shade of each pie slice.

It just needs something more.

Pokepie looks good!

Could always make pokemon character coming out of it or like a pikachu ear or something sticking out maybe his tail....

You could put 'battling' for the red part and sleeping for the white. Just a thought.

The basic idea is a pie chart of how a gamer spends their day.

I know the title of the original helped it make sense 'My Life as Pie' (I hope!). Then when I did the pokeball it went a bit off track but maybe a title could help. Now a Pacman version which makes sense but concerned about copyright.

What now? Maybe a Mario plant pie chart [boom - my head just exploded!!!]

I'm into the Pokeball, just cause I haven't seen it done before, or at least as often as the pacman pie chart. Or... just do both and sub separately? Can't hurt.

Yes I did think that. What about the title? I liked 'My life as Pie' but now it seems like 2 pop references (PI and pokemon or pacman) together might be confusing.

'My gaming life' 'Miss spent youth' '8 bit life'

?

maybe your nightmare is the group of words you are using. try to put some more unusual words, or something that has to do with the pie chart that you choose.

Pacman because the values seem more realistic for a hardcore gamer. The pokeball values seem like sleeping is on equal par with gaming however hardcore gamers play video games longer than they do sleep :D

Totally agree. As this is the point I am trying to get across - hardcore gaming, where all you do is sleep, eat and game. Hence the chosen words - @tohellandback

I liked the original one. Between these two I would choose the pacman one because I don't associate pokemon with games but maybe that's just because I'm old :P

No not the original!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with you about pokemon, but then I am old too.
