Are you addicted?
Here some quick questions:
While playing a video game:
1. People are trying to talk to you, but you do not respond
2. You spend your last penny to get a game
3. You must have the latest game at all costs
4. At the dinner table you talk about the games you play
5. You are very mad when you lose a game to the point that you become grumpy or upset
If you answered yes to any of the above you are addicted and may need help.
It really depends on if it's a new game and if the game is any good on whether I play it longer than an hour. If it's a total coolness game, I have been known to play it all day long or all night long. Just depends on if Shady lets me use the PS2. ;)
I'm addict, but its one of those things i'd love not to get over. mwuahaha!! Lol, nah, i'm not that bad. I like video games alot though, i still maintain a social life...amazingly.
I am not addicted to video games like that, i'd rather watch regular tv or go online on the computer
Discussion in the news about whether games are addictive since they stimulate the same area of the brain as other addictive substances Source
I'm addicted for sure. Sad, I know. I play video games a lot, probably I'm addicted - but I still prefer being with my friends than playing Video Games.
Of course if it's playing Video Games with my friends - then it's big fun.
There are alot of concerns for young children and teenagers, get games rated over there age group, just thought i'd mention it! :huh: Sorry about that!
Not here, when i'm an adult my kids can play whatever they want. As long as its not X rated or that BMX XXX game.....so retarded. As for gaming addiction....i love it! I love being addicted to stuff, it make stime pass so much faster.
