No. And if you get to that point, I don't think you should be playing Video Games.

It happens to a very significant amount of World of Warcraft players. I'm sure many people here have reached some level of addiction.

I played Civilization 3 online religiously for damned near five full years.  I was younger then, and it caused me to miss out on a lot of outings with friends, dinners with families, and school functions.

I never quite said WoW players were golden, did I ;-)

Yes, but never questioned myself why, and that game was Diablo II.

Some fucking great times.

Played Morrowind to Oblivion, pardon the pun. Played the shit out of it. Never let it get in the way of anything.

Oh. Then I didn't understand the question. I never played a game that significantly morphed my livelihood, not even WoW.

I've never let a game get in the way...or "lost myself" in a game for large amounts of time. I did get highly immersed in Bioshock when it first came out on my initial playthrough, but not addicted to the game.

My grades have dropped a couple of times in part due to video games, but my ADD and depression often cause me to find solace in things that comfort me rather than facing the stress of some of the harsher realities. I can become hopelessly distracted with my mind and if I can help it, I will play video games rather than stare into space. That is no fault of the games, however. Even if there are no games around I will instead come here or just day dream.

Don't judge me, you're not in my shoes. D:

The original Halo was a demonsend.  I fucking swear.  I was locked in that game's campaign for the longest time.  Two hours a day, every day, Legendary. 

Other than that, Diablo II.

World of Warcraft completely changed my life, all for the better though oddly enough. I am insanely happy with where I am now. This was back when the game was good mind you.

Not really....but I did waste the majority of my grade 6 (I'm in gr.11 now btw) winter break on Maple Story. When school started again I quit and I was super glad I did. I haven't played an MMORPG since.......

I am a very sick person, but I'm not joking. D:

I have virtual anonymity so don't get the impression that I have the balls to stand up in my highschool cafetertia and show them the scars on my wrists. I also probably wouldn't have said anything about it if Jayge hadn't talked about himself a while ago. I don't agree with the guy most of the times, but I admire him there.

Never had that kind of problem.
I don't even play games for more than like 10 hours straight and that is rare.

That's sad man. And I'm not saying it in a sarcastic way. It sucks that happened, and made you miss stuff.
