Video Game Addiction
Posted 21 April 2009 - 04:50 PM
In a related story, over 1 in ten boys born in the 70s were found to be addicted to "Cops & Robbers", "Action Man" and the most highly addictive game called "Legos". They were known to show horrific symptoms like preferring to play games over doing chores, or getting irritated when Action Man's arm fell off.

I wish we had more information about what the criteria were - the article says it was adapted from criteria for gambling addiction, which might be this, but I'm not sure.

then it's actually "at least 3 out of 8"
which is not quite impressive. I wonder what'd happen if they took out those three and then went for 5 signs out of 8. Probably 1 or 2%, which seems somewhat realistic.
Then again, I am no statistics expert, but In my oppinion you can stretch these things just the way you want to if you have some "foresight" in the matter.

Ok, calm down. I'm not addicted!
