A Look At The Effects Of World Of Warcraft Addiction

by Phil Kollar on Jan 30, 2012 at 02:40 PM

Whether you buy into the idea that someone can truly be addicted to a video game or not, I think we can all agree that some people get so obsessed with some games -- especially MMOs like World of Warcraft -- that their lives are negatively affected. Anthony Rosner is one such person.

In a short documentary entitled "IRL," Rosner takes a lighthearted look at how much of his life he spent on this game, the problems it caused for him, and what changed when he stopped playing. You can watch the full seven-and-a-half minute feature below. Even if you're a current happy WoW subscriber like myself, I think it's well worth taking a look.
