MTV True Life to cover game addiction, wants you

2009-06-21 20:00:00·  2 minute read   ·  Matthew Razak

Bitching about MTV is pretty much something everyone loves to do except for tween girls, but to be honest ever since Singled Out there's been a show on there that I'd watch, and now that there are practically no music videos the 24-hour reality television network has some decent stuff on there. True Life is one of those series. Though melodramatic and staged for dramatic effect more often than not it does do a good job of presenting real life issues that confront its viewing audience.

Next up will be videogame addiction (along with dating cougars, dating outside your social circle and issues with digital bullying). MTV is looking for people that look like they are between the ages of 17 and 29 and answer yes to the following questions: "Have video games totally taken over your life? Is your game play increasingly getting out of control? Have your friends or family confronted you about your gaming habit? How about your marriage or personal relationships -- are they being affected? Is it difficult to balance work and gaming time? Do you sometimes skip doing homework or household responsibilities to play? Have you played video games as a way of escaping your problems? Has your game playing habit become so encompassing that you may need to go to rehab to kick it?"

So who wants to get on MTV and do the entire thing in a Dtoid helmet and t-shirt? I'm sure Niero would lend it to you.
