Has anyone ever had to go to rehab for playing games too long?
If so, how did you recover? Which games are the most addictive?
I was involved in a long and drawn out game when I was 14 years of age. It went to triple over-time before it was ended with a goal I assisted on. We were so exhausted; yet the exhaustion did not appear until after over-time ended. Some of us collapsed. Our coach demanded/insisted that we re-hab. by riding stationary bikes for approximately 30 minutes.
I now play old timers hockey and it is somewhat ironic and appropriate for this particular question that our team is named after the nick-name of the Montreal Canadians. There nick name is the Habs. I play hockey for the Orlando Re-Habs!
I apologize for my slanted answer gravitating towards my sport of choice...
No, go right ahead and comment. Rehab must be a fun activity even when you are playing hockey. I am sure it would be horrible for you to stop playing because it was too addicting. I am not saying to stop playing for fun.
I play some games too long and I have periods when I just play games but it is not serious and after some times it stops and I focus on work without games.
But I do know couple of people addicted to games. I know few who do have money as their wife/husband earn a lot and they are just all the day at home and play games. And they do not care about anything else.
About addictive games, there are no category of games which are addictive but mostly that are massive multiplayer games for which you have to be all the time online and act. To attack people, defend if attacked, build new building when building slot is available. So some kind of massive strategy games. If you are too long offline - enemies will kill you so you must be there.
No, I would just not quit cold turkey and shy away from it day by day.

How many people here play X-box role playing games?I have to admit that I love my X-box and the role playing games such as Dragon Age, Civilization, Fable, etc. There must be others here who enjoy the games as much as I do... If so, what do you play? Multiplayer? etc...

I understand everyone needs a hobby or a past time, but should our adult males be playing video games more than our kids!! I have an older brother, he doesn't have any kids, yet instead of doing something constructive he will play the game,PS3, from dusk til dawn.
