I knew I had played too many games when I got thrown out of the zoo for jumping on the turtles.
But really, there are people that take it too far. There was a guy somewhere not long ago that just died because he had been playing an online RPG for
days with very little food, water or sleep, constantly. His body just packed in.
But when the world outside seems so crap, I think most Kids just want to escape, just want to pretend it isn't real and spend all their thoughts on
fantasy. In that way it IS like a drug, it's a form of escapism when it is used excessively and can destroy a childs social life and health.
But hopefully, most kids know better. It's when it get's to be an "every waking hour" thing that it gets dangerous.
