I can say from experience and watching this show on tv that yes, online games can become a problem. I have called in many a day to work, just to be able to get first shots at a new map pack. My wife sometimes refers to my gaming hobby as my girlfriend, and from what I have watched on the old boob tube, there are many Asian countries that are banning it due to deaths. I guess some people have died from malnutrition, siezures, and other ailments caused by their inability to leave their computer or game stations. I would have to say that I love video games, especially online multiplayer games, but I do not think I could live with myself if this were the case.
