yes in this new world anything can become addicting,but it depends on how the video games are brought into the house, and everything.
I love my video games, I could literally play for hours. But I much rather hang out with friends. I may have 10 lives in my game, but I only have 1 life in real life. So I may as well spend it right. With my family and friends. I can always pause my game, I can't pause life itself.
