While reading chapter six, it really caught my attention. I have a couple of friends who speak about playing World of Warcraft. Needless to say, they have all of confessed how playing this game has made them very addicted to it. This has made me think about the other video games that millions of Americans have become very addicted to playing. The burning question that I have always wanted to know an answer to is, “Why are people so addicted to playing video games?” I have always looked at video games as an escape from reality. Sadly there are some people who do not love the life that they have. Difficulties in life such as work, school or even bullying make facing everyday life hard for some individuals. I’ve always seen the addiction that some games have is something that they have to escape the reality that they have to face on a daily basis. Of course there are people who play games just to make the time pass, but what about the people who play for for multiple hours on end? What seems to be the underlying dilemma that they face? What are your thoughts on the situation?
