Video Games - Hobby or Addiction

We all have at least one friend who devotes his life totally to video games. Is this is good or maybe moderate playing of video games is better?


In the U.S., more than 40 percent of "gamers" are addicted to video games. This is a huge percentage. Video games have already taken the entertainment industry. Approximately over seven billion dollars are spent annually for gaming in the U.S. alone, and the numbers are growing and exceeds all other sectors of the entertainment industry. Gaming industry grows faster than the music and film industries, but also overtakes people who play these games.

Video games were developed deep into the mainstream. Due to new technological inventions, "gamers" receive unlimited possibilities. The biggest difference from the games today and in the past is that you can play online with friends and the whole world, and this is one of the main reasons for creating this addiction to games. The young and even oldest in the world have already gone to rehab, and many of them find very difficult to cure totally this addiction from games. Many of these people do not become addicted to the game, but from the feeling of reward. This phenomenon began with "Counter Strike", and expand with the game "World of Warcraft". Addicts from these games simply wake up and sit in front of the computer, play, eat, go to school or work, re-play, sleep and donít do virtually anything else.

We can compare gaming addiction with dependence on alcohol, cigarettes and drugs. This dependency makes people literally lifeless and out of reality, out of the real world and brings them in a new space, a new dimension. Many say that video games are a hobby, but in fact it is addictive, because you do not do anything well. For example playing soccer is a hobby, while playing we constantly socialize with friends, our body improves, we improve our health and makes us think, while the effects of playing games are very negative. Gaming addicts are constantly at home in front of computers, lose touch with their friends, do not do any physical activity that leads to deformation of their bodies, become aggressive, defensive ...

Games? Well I like to play sometimes those good kids games,but I prefer to climb a mountain, to play soccer with my friends or to run a couple of miles. I think it would be much more fun.[img][/img]
