Gamers at risk of addiction


4 out of 10 gamers in Singapore risk game addiction. In a study of more than 1000 people, game addicts typically experience symptoms such as inability to stop even when they know they have to. Obsession of games and conflicts with family about the addiction tend to happen. Most if the game addicts are around 17 to 20 in which one out of eight is addicted. game addicts tend to be ore aggressive. To help stop game addicts, negotiate with them  and set a reasonable limitation as some games may need more time to do an objective. In a case study, a boy stole US$16000 from his father and ran away to play video game.


 I agree with the way that they set limitations for such addicts. Most parents would often set limitation which are to short for even a game to be played. For instant, Multi player on line battle arena games like DOTA or League of Legends take around an hour to complete a game. Negotiating with the game addicts would allow the parents to know how long a game is and set the limitation around the time for a game. In doing so, both parties would be happy with the limitation.
