When I was growing up, all of my friends had a video game console except for me. My parents would not let me get one, which I know realize was not that mean of them. When I was in 6th grade I got my first console, the PS2. Over the years my mother would always tell me I was addicted to video games, I actively participated in sports and got good grades, so was I really addicted?
