I am working on my game addiction. I still paly a lot of games on the computer and my new Xbox. Currently I am playing dragon age and Skyrim on the computer and Fable II on the Xbox.
I am most assuredly not addicted to any video game. I might play Minecraft for up to half an hour, but I will be completely bored of it by then. Often I will just end up walking around my house, wondering what to do, as well as other irrelevant things. But I am confused; JB says that if you play a game and lose so that you become agitated or grumpy, you are addicted and need help. But when I find some weird app on my phone like Jelly Car, and play a single level over and over but keep getting hung on the same part after two hundred tries, I'll be fed up and grumpy for several minutes, maybe an hour. I do not think this means you are addicted (Unless, of course, you mean after one try, and an extended period of agitation.).
Playing online games was like drugs for me. Once you're in, you realize you're in 'satanic circle'. After I quit a game, other game will come to me.
But now, I endure myself not to spend a lot of time in front of computer because I know what its effect for me. Living in pseudo-real life.
Man breaks record with 10,607 games
Maybe it was getting his first video game, Cosmic Avenger, for Christmas at age 12, and then having to wait an entire year for the hard-to-land Colecovision console to play it on that made Michael Thomasson so determined to get his hands on every video game and system he could find. Ref. Source 9
