Sure. Carpal tunnel syndrome, posture problems, and loss of physical fitness as a result of a sedentary passtime.
But blowing up spaceships is FUN!
The secret is moderation. Don't spend all your time at the computer, and you'll be fine.
It being a strain on your eyes which I get from time to time in answering questions on hubpages.
Aside from the physical aspects mentioned, I believe there is a huge psychological effect. For me it becomes an escape and I find that is all I want to do.
I guess you can carpal tunnel and go blind. You can also gain excess weight from lack of exercise and be socially withdrawn.
Having played online games for years I would say no, but then I never really had a life to begin with. Seriously though, playing video games as a whole can have serious psychological affects like depression, divorce, joblessness or they may have no impact at all. The same can be said for pretty much any hobby or obsession I can think of.

What's the best role-playing game for the XBox 360?I'm a big fan of games like "Dragon Age" and "Diablo". I downloaded "Torchlight" and it seems pretty good. Just wondering if there's something out there that I've missed.

Staying alone most of the time is good or bad?I like spending time with myself more than anybody else, I like reading, writing and watching tv. I have friends as well. But the best time for me is the time which I spend alone. Is this a psychological disorder or this is normal ?
