Is there an addiction label for people that play MMOs? Game-a-holic, em-em-o-holic, vidyict…someone will pen one better.
Hi. I’m Todd and I’m addicted to playing massive multiplayer online games. They’re great as an entertainment option. I could justify playing a game vs. watching a show on the TV, but they don’t add any real value to life. I look at people with hobbies that are productive and I’m jealous, but I rarely indulge in that kind of self-flagellation. I deal with it just like a do when I have a task that has to be done that’s not particularly enjoyable – I put my head down and plow forward until it’s done. I usually just let those fleeting feelings of guilt wash through me until they pass, then hit the power button on my computer and fire up another round of gaming.
