I think this is a very good subject for geeks to discuss.

I think there is a segment of geekdom that likes gaming. Maybe I am wrong.

I had read some reports of gaming leading to depression and obesity, and maybe depression and shyness lead to gaming.

Then I found this scientific article. There is that magic word again SCIENCE. (He has a Master's degree in Science!).

It is worthy of study and discussion.

Curing people of addiction to video gaming is simple... just force them to play a series of games designed by Ewe Boll.

I was going to comment, but I feel too depressed, shy and fat to do anything about it.

We should give them all heroin so they can transfer this nasty addiction to something productive.
