Two Hours Of Gaming As Bad As A Line Of Cocaine Says Newspaper

A report by the Lancashire Evening Post suggests that playing video games for two hours is equivalent to doing a line of the drug cocaine, equating both activities to varying levels of addiction. They also mention that addicted youths are seeking official medical help from doctors as a result of having said gaming addictions.

You can read the full article here but yet again we are getting articles that are either sensationalist or therapists or counsellors are trying to analyse the situation yet making ridiculous comparisons to accentuate their points. I would expect trained professionals to be (I don't know) more professional about this but there you go. Plus we know a gaming habit is cheaper to maintain anyway.
