In a recent survey that was conducted, it was discovered that what parents fear the most is not that their children will get addicted to drinking alcohol or watching pornographic videos.
Their greatest fear is that their children will get obsessed with playing video games.
You may be surprised at first, but when you think about it the results actually makes sense.
Just take a look at the gaming consoles available today. You have the PlayStation 3, the Xbox360, and the Nintendo Wii – and that doesn’t count all of the older generations of these three consoles.
Plus, there are also handheld gaming devices such as the PSP and the Nintendo DS. And don’t forget the PC which the use more for playing games – especially massively multiplayer role playing games (MMORPGs) – rather than doing their schoolwork.
The reason why the gaming industry just keeps on growing is because the support for these games is still at an all time high.
The industry continues to earn huge profits even during times of economic crisis. But that’s another story altogether. Computer Addiction
