Though I do think it's true video games have impacted me physically, emotionally, mentally, and socially. The thing is that this is applicable to numerous activities and one has only themselves to blame for not having the power of self-control.

I've out on weight, I've gotten frustrated, I've put off studying, and I've even put off others, but if you can't manage to control yourself then it's your own damn fault.

Just like watching TV, sitting on the computer, and hell, even reading does it too (but nobody does that anymore). Video games are simply a scapegoat, but they are far too established and big for people to "take down". Just like television and computers.
