    I'm Going Cold Turkey (a Story Of Video Gaming (but Mostly Teenage Angst)).

    All my life I've known video games; even as a toddler my dad used to sit me in front of DOOM whilst he played, in order to shut me up (mentally scarring right? :P). Eventually we got a Nintendo64 (which was AMAZING back in the day) and enjoyed classics like Zelda: Ocarina of time...

    I was addicted to video games

    for eight years. It all started in 3rd grade when my parents divorced. The stress of it influenced me to keep playing video games rather than do something with myself. When they got back together, I still played games for like eight hours a day. I'm in the 10th grade now and...

    Yes I'm a Video Game Addict.

    I play video games just about everyday. I do spend lots of money on games, but at least I'm not ruining my health like smoking. I can talk about video games all day. Video games are my entertainment.

    Sim Life

    I am such a freak at Sims 3 and all the expansions. I really didn't like the game at first and thought it was boring until I notice it had been like 3 hours later, eyes still glued to the damn PC screen. Ever since I discovered the game, I have been majorly hooked. OMG, it is a...

    Addiction? Or Curse.

    Video Games are my life. If I don't get to play video games, I become depressed. Anyone else?
