    Addiction to gaming is like an addiction to gambling or to alcohol, the best way to fix the problem is to go to a specialist that can help the patient, not to try to play the psychologist yourself but more to follow the advices the doctors could give you.

    Moreover, since it's an addiction like the others, the age is kinda the same as for anything else (the youngest you are, the worse it will be somehow), but it's not the only factor to consider at all, a depression can lead to the addiction as well, and the same goes for the strategy of some games (F2P are the best game to develope an addiction).

    That being said, finding a hobby, an activity that can take the attention of someone (out of games) to makes one discovering something else than pixels is not a bad idea.

        Some online gaming are so popular now a days that they are played all over the world. Mostly young kids play gaming against each other and making millions.

        ​Online gaming can be addictive and that's the draw back, the positive thing is some of these kids making more money than most of us can see in our entire lives.

          I am wondering if there is any post you can make that doesn't include a link selling or promoting things.

            I think and I believe on line gaming is on the rise, regardless of what age group people are. I have read a true story about someone from China, he was was only 18 years old, he played every day for about 15-20 hours a day, wore a diaper so he doesn't need to go the bathroom. Finally, he died from a blood clot, formed in his leg. True but sad...

              Yes, my ex was. He used to buy expensive computers, their parts so that the games could run....It was one of the reasons I broke up with that person and never regretted doing so - when an adult who says he wishes for a family, kids, marriage just lives hugging his computer, it speaks volumes and only a gullible woman can believe such people can be non problematic in a family or relationships. Addictions ruin lives and are hard to get rid of, so I got rid of someone problematic instead

                Aya it's not our fault if game are very "greedy" when it comes to a configuration
                I admit it can cost a lot, especially f you want to play the biggest games at the moment but you could be addict on some that don't need a very expensive computer, my aunt started to play a lot for a while on small game like this, then stopped alone seeing she was already a "little bit" addict.

                  Why did you chose age 18?

                  I think older people are more in danger to a gaming addiction.
                  Younger people are (hopefully) not that often addicted because they are the second generation of online gamers and there is some experience available given from one generation to the next.

                  Important is to teach your children how to handle gaming, what are the signs of an addiction and set the right priorities.

                    I'm addict to game since teenager. Its because I don't have much many friends. There is no friends of the same age in my neighbors. And my school friends are faraway from the home I lived in. Then only games are my friend and I cannot escape from that game, I mean its so hard too get into reality

                      There are 3 options listed:
                      1. Above 18 (Anyone who is 18 years and older)
                      2. Below 18 (Anyone who is 18 years and younger)
                      3. Neither.

                        20 year olds are still young. So it makes no sense to me.

                        I think there is a change in attitude towards online gaming around age 30-40 and it is unimportant if somebody is 16 or 26 on that matter. I assume those younger than 30-40 have a more healthy attitude towards online-gaming. Older ones are either totally against it because they have no clue about it and are those who scream games are fault for amok-runs e.g. and there are those who did notice much too late that they ran into addiction because they had no clue what online-addiction is.

                        The addicts I knew where all above 40 years....and thats more than 5 years ago when I finished actively gaming myself.
                        My pc still fulfills minimum requirements - have had a look today *g*.

                          What for symptoms has a game addicted person?
                          How behave such a person in holidays away from online gaming?
                          Maybe is this just one a little bit ineffective way for killing time and not an addiction?

                          I know few alleged online-games addicted persons. Indeed they are neglecting social contacts to their friends, partners and children. Probably those online games replace somehow their desire for being together with other people in higher extent than garden work, fishing or any solo sport activity.
                          But meets behavior of such people criteria of addiction with all withdraw symptoms?

                            I rather not see anyone addicted to anything in life, but I think the majority of people, they rather be addicted to online gaming than drugs, alcohol or gambling.

                              I playing simple online games. My favorite are car racing games fro Topspeed https://www.topspeed.com/car-games/r...es/ke3558.html. For me it is a very good option to relax and get away from work.
