I've always been hearing that if a game is really addictive then it must be worth my money.
Meth is addictive. That shit is bad for you. A certain game is addictive?
Holy shit pre-order that shit now!
There's a problem with that. People have died doing Meth. People have died playing World Of Warcraft.
However, if a person dies from an overdose, it's clearly the fault of a some sort of drug outbreak or the drug itself.
If someone dies from playing World Of Warcraft, that person had a serious problem.
Why is that? Don't tell me it's up to the player to make sure he doesn't overdo it.
Some games are DESIGNED to get you addicted.http://www.cracked.com/article_18461_5-creepy-ways-video-games-are-trying-to-get-you-addicted.html
Yeah, I know I already posted that but this time it's for a different reason.
When I first played Maple Story, an mmorpg, I couldn't stop playing for hours. There's even a warning in the game encouraging you to take a break after 2 hours.
You know what you do in the game? Stand right next to a monster and hold down the ctrl key while occasionally healing yourself.
So what do you think?
Are addictive games good or bad?
Why? Why not?
