According to Dr. Anderson a psychologist, “What happens is that kids become addicted to games and it interferes with the rest of their life…people who are spending eleven to twelve hours on these games and they are basically not [living their life],”
According to him also, playing up to 12 hours leads to sleep deprivation. Bad thing here is lack of sleep less focus to school activities and school stuffs. If the person is to committed to in playing online RPG games, there is also a negative impact on his social life because there is no time devoted to maintaining and strengthening bonds between real people.
Online RPG Games can ruin even the marriage. Husbands who are heavy gamers clearly have negative impact on their marriages. No time for your wife, bonding, dates or even talks. Less communication with each other may lead to ruined marriage.
The study reports that 75 percent of spouses of sword-carrying, avatar-loving gamers wish they would put less effort into their guilds and more effort into their marriage. The researchers, led by graduate student Michelle Ahlstrom, and recreation management professor Neil Lundberg, studied 349 couples to learn how online role-playing games such as World of Warcraft, affect marital satisfaction for both gamers and their spouses. And in some cases, gaming even increased satisfaction.
""It's not the hours that make a difference,"" Lundberg said. ""It's really what it does to the relationship-- whether or not it creates conflict and quarreling over the game."" ""With any type of gaming, consider the content of the game. Consider what you are doing in the game, how much time it is taking, how it is affecting you, your schooling, work, sleep, body and especially how it is affecting your spouse and marital relationship.""
Particularly on Valentine's Day...
I hope husbands and even wives who knew from the very start that he/she is addict in online RPG games if you don’t want to ruin any Of your relationship balance your hobby.
