 Addiction http://www.ryangvancleave.com How serious is video game addiction?

A 2007 study by the AMA reports that close to
90% of American youngsters play video games
and as many as 15% of them—more than 5 million
kids—may be addicted (source: msnbc). And an
April 2, 2007 Harris poll found that: “Nationally,
8.5% of youth gamers (ages 8 to 18) can be
classified as pathologically or clinically ‘addicted’
to playing video games.” This is a $22 billion
dollar a year industry we’re talking about, with
expectations for that number to double by 2012.
247 U.S. colleges now have degrees in the creation
of video games. That’s a lot of numbers, I realize.
So what does this all mean? It means that
whatever level the current problem actually is, it’s
only going to get worse.
