There must be a point and time when you can put down the joystick and paddles and hit the off button, if not, you need help.

I agree. If you can accept it while also keeping it in check by not allowing it to take over you're life, I think it's fine. I had a buddy that lost his job and his friends because he became over-immersed in WoW. He would show up late/not at all to work because his guild was going on raids, or he'd be a no call no show for our PnP gaming night. That's too far. All he had to do was say he didn't want to get together anymore and we would have been fine. Repeatedly flaking out without a heads up when we know your guild sets that stuff up months in advance though is just a jerk move.

I believe that addiction is when you cannot function adequately without the games. I've definitely had games that I've spent all day thinking about, even when I'm not playing. That being said, I've never let it affect my sleep and eating cycles. When it gets to that point, the behavior becomes destructive. Games in and of themselves are not dangerous, but when you are no longer getting exercise and spending all hours on the couch, this is a problem. I've had acquaintances lose their jobs because they stopped going to work when a new game came out. THIS is addiction.
