They mentioned that this would happen what seems like forever ago, interesting that it's only happening now.

I didnt watch video...but i sure as hell hope they added snapchat and facebook to their list for addictions. Can't stand those fucks that I have to hang out with all with their faces glowing from their phone screens, during any social outing. Some making dumbass faces for snapchat, or posting that they just ate or performed an event that most people dont give a shit about.
You have to hang out with these people that you despise so much? Gun to your head? I go out of my way to avoid people like this. No point in hanging out with anyone if all they're going to do is use their phone.

You don't hang out with people like this. They're just everywhere. Like a zombie movie.

Right, but he did specifically state: "Can't stand those fucks that I have to hang out with". I agree with you though.

So it's an addiction?

Fancy that.

Pretty sure most of us know somebody who flushed their own life down the toilet for gaming or any other of an endless list of "entertainment" addictions.
World of Warcraft has screwed a good number of people I know.

My brother has lost two jobs and almost became homeless because of Wow. His son is following in his footsteps. My bro has a disability so now he can sit at home and play all he wants. Guess I could be jealous, games are fun, but I enjoy life too. I believe most of us enjoy building them more than gaming most times.
Yeah, it's strange that so many people who stay alone think they have it all figured out. God knows I did, but marriage, a company, and five daughters? This is fucking awesome. I wouldn't trade this for any hobby.

I'm totally with you on the system building, too.

I still play. Married, full time job which I love, still plenty of other hobbies as well.

Star wars galaxies caused me trouble due to an addiction I had to it. Don't blame the game though, was my decisions that I made.

If only those people had been adults capable of making decisions and prioritizing other responsibilities in their lives...
I think it's more than that. Blizzard has spent millions in research on game addiction and how to exploit that. There are tons of books written on the subject.

I used to have the same opinion as you. But if you get a child addicted to heroin, is it the childs fault they can't break the addiction? Because these types of games are just as addictive and they are getting hooked at an age far younger than we ever did. Hell, I was a teenager before we could afford a TV and a basic second hand Nintendo. I picked up a DS for my niece when she was 6...

I used to be game addicted and I regret wasting many good moments I could have had with my children when they were small, playing games instead. Now I find games utterly boring unless I play in a group with friends.

Have to say that anyone still playing No Man's Land would be a prime candidate for this story.
