Both my boys are addicted but it's better than some of there friends who aren't addicted to games, one or 2 are addicted to much worse sh*t.

I remember back in 85 when I played on the old sinclair spectrum and then in the 90's on the megadrive and ninty. God I actually pooped myself once playing a game you couldn't save for a whole, very long level. (I did have a dicky tummy as well)

Gross I know but which generation are the addicts?
