Ever dealt with video game addiction?

#1FeatherwindPosted 1/10/2014 9:48:28 AM
Have you thought you or someone you know is addicted to video games? What made you think of it as addiction? What were the consequences of this addiction and was there ever any "resolution"?

I feel like the entire point of this topic is to bait someone into making a display resolution joke.

Me. All I wanted to do was play a game and thought it about it a lot. Planned tactics and organized people to do each job needed to win the match. No consequences besides being seen as "wasting time" to non gamers. No resolution - it's not a problem for me. Some people like to go shopping, some people like to go to bars and clubs. Me? I'd rather go to a friends/stay at home on Skype and play games with my friends.

Note: No game in particular - just whatever me and my group are playing at the time. WoW, LoL, DayZ, Diablo 2, ETS2, CoD, BF:BC2 or BF3/4, etc.

I had a problem with WoW and Rift. I literally had to unsub and delete from my computer. I vowed to never play an MMO every again. It's the false sense of reaching the finish line only to discover that there is another finish line and another finish line. So you invest all this time and you want some closure to the game so you can move on but there isn't any. You just have to move on.

I used to be pretty addicted to games for awhile. I stopped playing for like a year because it was getting in the way of things.

Lately I've been playing more than I should, might have to go on a break again. It interferes with my social life big time. But I'm not missing work because of it so I'm not that worried yet.

I got addicted to web based tactical games back in 2005. I got fat. Sat in the dark a lot. Pretty much it.

Let us assume that for the sake of assumption that I am always right.
