Volgens Brandon Hipsher is gaming niet verslavender dan televisie kijken. Hij speelt dagelijks 4 a 5 uur, en in het weekend 15 a 16 uur per dag. Toch is gamen zeer sociaal, aldus Hipsher.I'd get withdrawal symptoms within five minutes of leaving the game.
I'd only leave for a drink but I'd run back to my machine. I was having my breakfast right in front of the computer. At work I'd visit online forums about the game.I'm playing less now. My wife is pregnant and needs a lot of attention. It wouldn't look good if I put my energy into World of Warcraft.
