Fifth 'View From The Bottom' Tackles Addiction
8:21 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Spiderweb's Jeff Vogel has penned his fifth View From The Bottom, an ongoing series of commentaries focusing on various issues related to computer games. This time he examines MMO addiction and points out some of the less savory aspects of dealing with other humans in the online world.

If you ever feel like quitting, QUIT!

Seriously. Every once in a while, you'll start to lose your energy. You'll feel like taking a little break. Read books. Go out. Meet people. When that happens, when you get an itch to take a break, RUN WITH THAT!

Feeling like quitting one of these horrible games is the sweetest gift life can give you. You can shake the addiction and get all those hours back. It's like if you were a hopeless heroin addict, and one day, you woke up and said, "You know something? I don't feel like any heroin today. I'll go for a walk. See a movie. Get a job." Yes! Do that! You caught a lucky break. Run for your life!
