Breaking a vow?
#1
I made a vow to God under pain of mortal sin to quit a game and not play it again until my account is deleted. I forgot about it and broke it....if it is feasible. Am I in a state of mortal sin? I forgot I made the vow, until I was playing the game. I would like an answer when you guys get a chance.

Ignoring whether you can bind yourself under the pain of mortal sin or not, consider a similar situation where we know we are bound by the Church under the pain of mortal sin.

Imagine it's Ash Wednesday.  You're at work and lunch comes around when a coworker brings in hamburgers.  You're exhausted from work, forgot it's Ash Wednesday, and eat a hamburger. 

Did consuming that hamburger put you in a state of mortal sin?  No.  

Remember Anon, can't accidentally commit mortal sin.
