The Architecture of Addiction

MMORPG.com's Dan Fortier takes an editorial look at MMO Addiction. You don't want to miss a word.

Some folks apparently have some problems letting go of the games they play because I’m hearing more and more about this so-called addiction to online games. You can take some stories right from the news about people leaving their infants to die or stabbing their friends over stolen virtual property, but it’s nothing new. There are still people who can regurgitate all those horror stories from the older days when Dungeons and Dragons players were considered lures for satanic cults and people were committing suicide over lost characters. What is the common element behind these stories? Without a doubt, the answer would have to be: mentally unbalanced people with addictive personalities. The kind of people that can turn any hobby into a dangerous obsession.

More is just a click away.
