I'm going to play my games until my eyes bleed and my brain dissolves at it's stem. So there.

well thats your choice, people have their own choices, there are 2 sides to the argument, if people want to play games let them play and if people dont then they dont play and they find different things to do.

I guess...I must not be comprehending the level of addiction some of you must have. I've been playing pc games for close to a decade, and in all that time I've never quite them all together. Some weeks my schedule might not allow for me to even think about playing a round, but I still played, it's one of my nightly rituals I do to relax before bed. I guess it all depends on your gaming mentality. My roomate sits at his computer the moment he gets home and plays FFXI, he doesnt stop until he goes to bed. It's pretty disgusting. Moderation is a wonderful thing. I see no sense in quitting something you enjoy, or something that relaxes you, assuming it isn't unhealthy for you.

Eh. Everyone can rag on you for playing video games, but in the end. You're just avoiding something else. For all you know, I avoid doing coke and shooting up acid by playing video games.

Plus, I'm already depressed, and not having something to busy my mind with, I go out of control. Even with the medications.

So Video games have their ups and downs for everyone. I'm a relatively social person. But I always have video games around to keep me busy if I can't find something to do. And since I started playing, I've been alot better. My parents pretty much rub in the fact that I'm not the angsty teen they once knew.
