Are RPG's to addictive?
When is a game to addicting?
Lets get this straight, I am a christian, and my religion will be brought up, but this page is not just for christians, it is to help people who are addicted to video games.
I will not condemn a game just because its a RPG, in fact RPGS (role playing games) are among my favorite video game genres. There is a certain sense of accomplishment in building a character up from scratch and watching him/her become more powerful. I love it.
Exodus ( ) says, "tho shall have no other gods before me." I think anything that we put before God is a god to us. Let me explain, money, clothes, TV, anything we think is more important then God is an idol, God wants us to think He is the most important thing in our lives. And to be honest sometimes i would rather play a video game then read my bible. Especially when a game is really addictive. And RPGS are addictive to me.
Do you play rpgs?

The point of this module is to see if you are addicted to a game and if you are clarifies why I think that is bad.
God should be the most important thing in our lives. But sometimes He is not. I, for one, tend to get caught up in games I play, especially RPGS. Video games tend to be addictive because they are fun. RPG's are even more addictive because you want your character to become stronger. Right a way your character is weak, and naturally you want to change that, but this involves work (the fun kind) become powerful is fun and satisfying, but it can be hard to stop playing a RPG.
Now first of all I am going to clarify that RPG's are not the only addictive games out their. And second of all I think it is fine to play video games as long as your priories are straight. Also just because you play video game a lot does not mean you are addicted to them, somedays I don't work I play for 8+ hours but I am not addicted, I can stop whenever and sometimes I go days without playing them because I have other stuff to do. I think you are addicted to video games if and only if you play them instead of doing other things you know you should. If you have a test coming up and you don't study for it even though you know you should and play games anyway then you have a problem. Or if you play a game instead of going to church, you have a problem.
I don't think that you have to stop playing video games because of addiction or go to extreme measures like therapy. I think that the best way to hand video game addiction is to just stop playing them for a few days (or weeks, or months) and then start playing them again slowly. Know thats just what I think does anyone have a better idea. If you do please contact me or leave a comment below.
