Obsessive and/or compulsive does not equal an altered perception of reality due to the content of such games, particularly considering the still unrealistic video quality presented in such games. That can certainly change as technology advances, so what I believe today I can possibly change my mind upon in the future.
That being said, I’m sorry to hear about your son. I lost my brother about 14 years ago due to a defective heart valve and not a day goes by that I don’t miss him or think about him.
I guess that is the beauty of this forum, we each get to express our own opinions.
I am convinced there is a direct corelation between anti-depressant meds and video game stimulation that the average person does not realize. I could be wrong.
All I can tell you is that I have a son who is not at home with his family and it all started over a video game.
Thanks for your comment about my son. I really appreciate it.
