    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.

    I see people playing online games at work when they should be working. If they continue to do that it could effect their productivity and eventually their jobs.

    It certainly can be a problem.  Gaming, and especially online gaming can become rather addictive.  Like any addiction, negative consequences may arise.  Personally, I consider gaming to be a hobby.  I try to make sure all of my work is finished, and my family taken care of before I sit down for an hour or two of gaming.  Some days that means I must sacrifice my hobby for my real life responsibilities.  Not everyone has the discipline to do so.

    Indeed, the game is a good thing, he can make people spend their free time to relax, but someone is out of control, and so they desire. This is addictive affect his normal life.
    In fact I'm game, I on the website of the many game, have the interest and see it.

    I suppose for some it might, but then what else would we do with our lives? Watch TV? Hang out at bars? I think I'll stick with my games.
