Online games can be both a good master as well as a good servant. As a good servant it fills your time with relaxation and time off from your studies. It provides you a good hobby and allows you a choice when you know not what to do. But as a good master it not only takes your time away from your studies and all that you should be doing instead and that would not be good in the long run. Addiction to online games is real. It is a disease, not one physically but obviously one of the mind. It should be managed to allow one to live healthily and perhaps happily.

Obviously it boils down to addiction of playing online games which leave many students today with little time to pursue their studies. It takes a lot of personal willpower perhaps help from friends and counsellors to manage the addiction and return to studies.

well i think not only college students. their are other classes of people that is affected by gaming addiction. i think if they cannot stop themselves then its worrisome because their personal life will be affected greatly.
