Video games are one of the most addictive things that are currently present in the market. It is difficult to find out whether or not you are addicted to video games. It is also very difficult for a person to come out of this addiction.

Business Marketing Video

Video games are becoming increasingly complex, detailed, and compelling to a growing international audience of players.

I sometimes play video games for a long period of time, my mother calls me addicted, but...I have a 3.7 GPA, I play sports and love outdoor activities. What I want to know is where the line is between addiction and enjoyment. Because I just think of gaming of a time consuming, but fun hobby.

No your not addicted and no matter what others say they are wrong. Just because you enjoy it doesnt mean your a addict. If your able to STOP playing with your own will then you are under control of yourself.

Most sites and "clinically proven" garbage is false, wana know if your addictive ask your self this: are you mad or depressed when your not playing it or other video games.

I for example play/watch anime for at least 10-15 hours a day but when its time to go PT (joining marine corp) i stop the moment a curtain time hits and im out the door. Also during vacations i dont even take my phone with me. I prefer camping and sports over any video game ever thats why im in process of joining marine corp.
So even playing a amount that is shocking it doesnt mean anything, i only play cause im bored or have nothing better to do (kills time, what else can kill 15 hours a day)
