Meh. Can't be worse than my masturbation addiction.
Lots of things can cause addictions. Food, drugs, video games, sex, cigarettes, chocolate, soda, the computer, alcohol, texting, plenty of things have that effect.
Should we now chastise video games for a minor incident like this? No way. The biggest thing about addiction is how it affects your daily live and health. Video games and Facebook aren't nearly as harmful as drugs and alcohol in this sense. Why should we put them in the same category? This is a scare tactic to paint video games in a bad light.

The key with absolutely anything is moderation and knowing yourself. I can honestly say that I've never been drunk. My grandfather, unfortunately, turned to alcohol quite a bit when I was young, and although he was the nicest person and I love him greatly, I know that if he could get addicted to that, so could I. So, I've avoided it pretty much my entire life.
If this dude has a person issue with video games, I'm glad that he got it taken care of, and yeah -- he should probably avoid them in the future. But that doesn't mean that video games are dangerous to the vast majority of people, and this article's attempt to frame them this way (each year, the average age of a gamer goes up... oh noes!) is just asinine. It is sensationalist writing, nothing more.

Everyone finds it so much easier to blame something for their problems. Be it drugs, games, etc. When the real problem lies with yourself.
