Be warned, online games addictions can kill you ! I still can not comprehend why there are so many people willingly allowed themselves to be addicted in the virtual world of online fantasies. Sure, most of these online gamers are intelligent people, but I doubt they have any emotional stability and social skills in real life. They may have a lot of virtual friends in the cyberworld, but when the computer is shutdown, they are back to being a lonely soul. It is okay to indulge in occasional online games as a form of entertainment. But it is not healthy to obsessively involved in trying to gain recognitions through online games. Put these so called “serious” online gamers into any real life situations, and I doubt they are capable of handling any real life issues. Get real, face the real world ! Achievements in online fantasy is merely an act of emotional escapism, it doesn't accord you real success in real life.
