Video Game Addiction Information

Game addiction is a form of psychological addiction related to a compulsive use of computer and video games, most notably MMORPGs - open ended, online video games known for their depth, breadth, and social interaction. People suffering from this form of addiction may experience intense cravings to play the game and may also suffer symptoms of withdrawal when they stop playing the game. Those affected may also enter long periods of self-imposed social isolation where friends and family are excluded. One example of this is the gamer widow, a term used to designate a spouse or significant other who has been neglected because of the video game addiction.
