Video game addiction is a lesser known, but very severe form of addiction, similar to drug addiction in that addicted gamers often try to escape problems in their lives by playing deeply engrossing video games that provide them with a sense of power and control.
These games offer a chemical reward system similar to drug use, while giving users an attractive escape to become fully immersed in a virtual world that is at their beck and call. This sense of power, accomplishment and self worth are highly addictive to users of all ages, but especially socially maladjusted teenagers, most often boys, who withdraw from society and into the gaming world as a form of sanctuary.
