Dr Phil, that self made psychiatrist which I personally cannot watch with slapping my head. Is apparently preparing a second segment on videogames. The focus being on their addiction and how they are designed to enslave gamers. In the upcoming show he even accuses Wendy Kays (wife to Graham Kays who is the lead designer for SOCOM: U.S. Navy Seals) one of his guests on the show, of being biased. Despite her a book on the subject called "Game Widow" which hardly sounds supportive of videogames.
A little over a year ago, we commented on Dr.Phil taping one of his shows which was focused on violent video games. Now, while I have to acknowledge his originality, (because lets face it, no one has ever gone out of their way to blame video games on violence before), the thoughtless attacks are unnecessary. Obviously that isnt stopping him from going after ratings, because he has a new show, set to air in October, concerning video games being addictive (another, completely original though). Not only that, but Dr.Phil is making it a point of arguing that video games are intentionally, and thoughtfully designed to be addictive. How do we Know this? Simple, one of his guests said so in her blog.
