An eleven-year-old boy strangled an elderly woman for the equivalent of five dollars in 2007, then buried her body under a thin layer of sand. He told the police that he needed the money to play online videogames. Just a month later, an eight-year-old Norwegian boy saved his younger sister’s life by threatening an attacking moose and then feigning death when the moose attacked him—skills he said he learned while playing World of Warcraft. As these two instances show, videogames affect the minds, bodies, and lives of millions of gamers, negatively and positively. This book approaches videogame addiction from a cross-disciplinary perspective, bridging the divide between liberal arts academics and clinical researchers. The topic of addiction is examined neutrally, using accepted research in neuroscience, media studies, and developmental psychology.

This book is an accumulation of various gaming addiction stories from real people. You might laugh or you might cry when you read lines like this: "By now TK and Keith had full blown World of Warcraft addictions by any definition ranging from telling girlfriends they were going to bed and then staying up ten more hours to game to actually getting their girlfriend to play World of Warcraft with them." You might laugh or roll your eyes when you read quotes such as "I wondered how many times I could handle failing like this before I just gave up and settled for the first fugly bitch that came along and wanted to get married?" I have compiled these stories to not only help people with gaming addictions but also to bring an understanding to family members and friends of gamers. There are so many aspects of gaming addiction and these stories encompass various people's walks with playing excessive amounts of addicting games. This book is not a traditional book. You may want to jump around to different chapters in any order to find what stories most relate to you. I have saved my own story for last and would love for you to check it out. Female gamers might get the most out of reading Chapter 4 which is a story written by a nineteen year old female. Chapter 5 is about a high school boy who now has to get dentures because of his gaming habits. He has turned his life around and joined the Army. For anyone who has doubts about gaming addictions please read chapter 8 which includes numerous short stories about gaming addiction and can give you a quick look at what different gamers go through. I encourage you to read all stories and get a better understanding of what gaming addicts go through. The idea with this book is to share stories and to gain a complete perspective on the good, bad, and the ugly of playing too many addicting games. I hope you will submit your story at after you read this story so that future editions of this book will offer even more value than this first edition!
