Steve Pope, a counsellor and therapist up in Lancashire, UK, has claimed that two hours of gaming is the equivalent of a line of cocaine. The claims are part of a report for the Lancashire evening post which also describes:
- A mother buying her teenage son the 18 rated Call of Duty and describing it as “It’s like I went out and bought him his first shot of whisky.”
- Premiership footballers gripped by computer game addiction.
- “Computer game addiction can also spiral into violence as after playing violent games, they may turn their fantasy games into reality.”
I could go on listing the utter crap they have printed, but why not click here to read it yourself. Then send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org and maybe they will think twice before they print such sensational rubbish.
