VGA: Video Game Addiction

Most definitions of video game addiction refer to excessive play which results in negative emotional, social, relational, educational, or career – related consequences.

Instead of devoting energy to “real-world” activities and pursuits, a video game addict spends most of his or her time playing games. Someone who has developed a video game addiction prioritizes gaming accomplishments over all other activities such as spending time with friends and family, school achievement, work performance, and interpersonal relationships.
