Video game addiction has affected many people. How many times have we seen a parody on television of a child throwing a fit because they are forced to stop playing their video games, or turn them off, etc? The sad thing is that this type of behavior is more common than not! I think that the most clear example of video addiction should be that the ONLY successful video addiction rehab center in the country is located in Seattle, outside the Microsoft headquarters! We are seeing more and more marriages and relationships breaking up because ADULTS are showing signs of video game addiction. Playing video games used to be isolated to adolescents, however, those adolescents are now grown adults, and we are seeing that they are not giving up playing the video games. The most famous example of this was a few years back when the famous tennis player, Andy Murray, was dumped by his girlfriend because of his over-excessive video game usage!
