GamingIrresponsibly's guest writer, Adrian, asks if it truly is gaming that's an addiction, or if it's the social side of it.
Both, depends on the person.
Neither it's a hobby and an activity just like watching movies or reading books. Though just like with everything some people take things to ridiculous excess.
Its quite possible to get out of hand for some people.
I've seen some rather ridiculous "Addictions" to CoD and to WoW. I agree, it depends on the person.
I used to be addicted to WoW like you wouldn't believe. It was terrible.
It can easily become a real addiction.
