I recently started playing video games and I have just realized that am so much hooked up to them. Is these the way it goes?

For me it is. I can never have enough. I've lost track of how many games I have, it's so many. Hey, there are worse addictions out there!

Haha yeah video games are for sure addictive. One video game I can recall that I have gotten really addicted to before would be Resident Evil 4. I have beaten that game around 5 times now and trying to get all these special features and things. Also, Elder Scrolls: Oblivion .. I had around 60 hours on that game. Last, and most recently, I was addicted to Advance Wars 2 (around Easter time). I got to the very last level in the campaign but I am kinda sketchy at even attempting it lol.

Well, yeah, it can be very addictive if you are not really doing anything. I myself, once got addicted to some video games last summer but I think that was okay since it was summer but this summer, I opt to do other things lolz.

For me they are not addictive. But for others it is. All depends on the person and how the person takes the game. If they are easily addicted or not. The only two games that I could really be considered addictive are Rock Band and Guitar Hero. And even that I am not playing them every day.
