I think my room mate is an addict: To video games. Ok, Now I know people might think its not possible, but its ALL he does. He works full time, and spends countless hours on his computer playing games. The other day our internet went down, and he was acting like the WORLD was going to end. Here is his xfire account Xfire - @ scorp (scorpion1087) According to xfire, he's spend 41 hours alone this week, and thats only becuase for one night our internet was down, so it didn't record, its usually a higher number then that. Its getting bad. He's missing work because he wants to game, he sleeps 14 hours on weekends because he sleeps so little on weekends, he has ZERO social interaction besides me when I can convince him to go see a movie, or go to the gym. I'm worried about it. Its literally taking over his life, its effecting him in negative ways. He's already over 300lbs, and he eats out all the time because he can't take the 1hour it takes to cook for himself. He doesn't clean up around the house, he does nothing. He will most likley loose his job, twice in the month of december I got home from work (around 6:30pm) and he was still sleeping (he works from 3pm-12am) Its very sad to see. The thing is, he doesn't see it as a problem. He thinks its normal. He says "you go upstairs hang out with your friends and watch movies, I play video games online with my "friends" (virtual friends) He's dropped out of two university programs, and I believe its because it was too much work, and he wasn't willing to cut back on games. Oh, and when he's not playing games, he's watching youtube videos about how to get better at games, or looking at his game stats on websites. Its an obsession. How would you help him?
