The addiction of gaming and the impact this activity has, is highly publicized and well known amount our communities. Its no surprise that no matter what type of gamer your are, when it comes to an intensely involved game, like “Call of Duty,” you must be all in, emotionally, physically. Your entire attention is focused on that task at hand. You could say that depending on the level gamer you are, the addiction aspect of the game may cause one to be oblivious to the world around you. This level of addiction is not unique to Call of Duty, but I will use this particular game as my game addiction example, for the single reason that I have experienced this level of addiction (fortunately I am much more in control of my amount of play).
So what makes us so engrossed in this particular game? A recent article from the Washington Post concluded that players of this game have logged over 475,000 gaming years over a 6 year span.
More to come…..
