Shock news: spending 14 hours a day on Counterstrike or World of Warcraft means your offline relationships could suffer.

"Relationship quality is one of a cluster of things that we found to be associated with video games," said researcher Laura Walker. "The most striking part is that everything we found clustered around video game use is negative."
