IGDA Founder Responds To Indie Devs Being Blocked On #GamerGate Blocklist 2 hours 43 mins ago
We all know the stories. Heartbreak, loss, even death (gasp). IGN gave an in-depth look at WoW addiction from the perspective of an addict, and it's worth checking out.
The videogame industry has been one of the hardest hit, with over ten million World of Warcraft addicts alone. That's ten million people chasing the dragon, in the hopes they can kill it and score some epic loot. To peer inside the mind of an addict is to peer into the void, where all the concerns that you and I take for granted having shelter, food, clothes, and a steady supply of money from our whores no longer matters. All that matters is the drug. All that matters is the next fix.
It's a serious problem, and one which many of you are no doubt grappling with on a daily basis. With that in mind, we got in touch with two former addicts who have seen the blackest depths of addiction but somehow came out the other side. With their help we'll take you through the realities of WoW addiction and the steps required to live another day.
