An Addiction to Video Games?

gamrReview's Jesse Harness: "“Playing video games never hurt anyone.” If you’ve ever gotten involved with any kind of debate around video games — particularly those involving the practices of the ESRB, PEGI, or those who link playing video games with violent real-life behavior, then you’ve heard someone say this at some point. Is it true though? I still remember hearing two news stories — one in 2005 and another in 2012 — in which video games really did hurt someone, in a manner of speaking. More accurately, video game addiction killed two men." (Culture, Industry, World of Warcraft)
