    Re: Video game addiction can lead to ruin

    There is a HUGE difference between gaming and being addicted to it though.
    It can become an addiction, but I think that is the exception, not the rule, and is usually precursed by some other type of compulsive behavior, similar to gambling (although gambling has a stronger reward schedule that is based on intermittent positive reinforcement).

    Re: Video game addiction can lead to ruin

    I love playing video games, but I would never miss a day of work for it. I guess it can be addicting, but withdrawal syptoms I can't imagine are too serious.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
