    Video games are still new to some people, and new things scare people. Thats why there so concerned about this so called video game/ online addiction. But since more people are used to drug addicts. Along with the people who absess with working out and taking medicine pills making themselves stronger. WTF WORLD

    Goddammit Imln93, I don't think anyone in the existence of the universe has every bought something from one of these stupid comment ads. Oh, and db, it's cool. It happens. Oh, and let's just completely forget the fact the video games require more time to complete than movies or (some) books, and let's just completely overlook the multiplayer. Video games are different than movies. Movies are different than music, and so on. You can't just cram them all into one classification, like "media" or "entertainment". They all need to be studied independently, and judged by their own merits. Or we could just let Glenn Beck keep going on about baseball bats and hookers. Your choice.

    @mrmorozov987 I didn't read your first comment before I posted mine, I kind of robbed some of what you were saying. You were 100% right though.

    db1331: Exactly! This is exactly what happened with movies and comic books when they were first introduced to society. Again, pretentious hypocrites.

    Video games have this evil stigma about them that causes the term "addiction" to be thrown around too loosely. Say you have a person who gets off work at 5 and goes home and games for 5-6 hours each night. People are going to say that person is addicted to games. But if that same person spent that same amount of time doing a more socially acceptable activity, like reading a book or painting a picture, people would say, "Oh he loves to paint" or "Our son just LOVES reading!" Have you ever heard of someone being addicted to reading? So why can't some people just love playing games without having to be "Addicted" to them?

    If you get addicted to something like video games to the point where your life is ruined, you have little to no willpower. It's a lot easier to get addicted to smoking, drinking, drugs or any other chemical substance like energy drinks or chocolate even.

    That's how I met my girlfriend.

    Think about this: no one cares if someone is addicted to movies, music, or novels. But video games, OHHHH, you're throwing your life away! Pretentious hypocrites.

    Video Game addiction is not as bad as being addicted to drugs so what does it matter

    Fuck you, Law and Order.
