Online sex video game

Male players who were good at the game also tended to pay compliments to other male and female players.Some male players, however — the ones who were less-skilled at the game, and performing worse relative their peers — made frequent, nasty comments to the female gamers.

But these addicts aren't hooked on drugs or alcohol.

They are going cold turkey to break their dependence on video games.

Kasumovic argues that video games actually make incredible proxies for studying real-life behavior — Halo 3, especially.

There are three things you should know about the game, for the purpose of understanding this study: (1) players are anonymous, and the possibility of “policing individual behavior is almost impossible”; (2) they only encounter each other a few times in passing — it’s very possible to hurl an expletive at another player, and never “see” him or her again; and (3) finally, and perhaps predictably, the sex-ratio of players is biased pretty heavily toward men. In each of these environments, Kasumovic suggests, a recent influx of female participants has disrupted a pre-existing social hierarchy.

He plays for three to four hours almost every day -- more on weekends -- occasionally putting off meals or sleep. Spending a lot of time gaming doesn't necessarily qualify as an addiction.
