Game ad­dic­tion

Vocable (All English) - - À La Une -

The video game Fort­nite, first re­leased in 2017, has been ac­cused of cre­at­ing wide­spread ad­dic­tion for its play­ers, send­ing kids through­out the world to gam­ing re­hab. Ac­cord­ing to Lor­rine Marer, a British be­hav­ioral spe­cial­ist, this video game “is like heroin. Once you are hooked, it’s hard to get un­hooked.” An on­line U.K. di­vorce ser­vice also said that 200 pe­ti­tions cited Fort­nite and other video games as the rea­son for mar­riage breakup this year. More than 200 mil­lion peo­ple play Fort­nite world­wide.
