The dark side of video games: are you addicted?

Journal Article


Abstract


  • What is it with us today? We are giving over control to the machine and losing touch with the physical world around us [1]. We are witnessing the decay of our meaningful relationships-sucked into electronic vectors of nothingness-right before our very eyes [2]. Sometimes we are at a loss to describe this phenomenon, reflecting on how members of our own family have been duped by the promise of a Second Life.
