UK news report on game addiction clinic upsets gamers


Gamers are getting angry over a UK news report on the game addiction clinic that we talked about yesterday. The West Country Tonight (haha) ran a story on the clinic, based in Somerset, with the kind of "look at these crazy video'd games" attitude that one would expect from televised media. Still, it's really not as bad as some people are making out.

At the very least, it entertains both sides of the argument, which is more of a courtesy than some news outlets provide. The report itself doesn't portray videogames in a negative light, and its talking heads segment actually seems to come down very favorably on the side of gaming.

So yeah, I wouldn't call this a good report, but it's not all that bad. I often wonder, however, what would happen if somebody tried to set up a book addiction clinic for people that can't stop reading.
