Recently, in South Korea there has been a incident where a person died in a personal computer room also known as PC room. This person was so addicted to games and stayed in the PC room for 3 day straight without resting. He was not able to overcome the addiction and stay alive. This is an example of the effect of game addiction. You can see that game is very harmful to people and it could really kill a person. Playing games for three day might seem short, but it is actually a quite along time if you try it. I have personally tried playing game for 10 hours straight while I was in middle school and it was a really long time. Also, I did not use my time wisely and I wasted my day. Therefore, game addiction can put you into death and waste a lot of time in you life.
The most game addiction occur while people are teenagers. Due to the addiction, the teenagers are spending most of their time playing video games and not doing their homework. Also, the students who play games usually do not get good grades and they sleep during class because they play game until 3 o’clock in the morning. Most importantly, the game addicts do not spend their time with their friends and they live alone. This makes the addicts have very depressing life. When the teenage addicts are away from game for a while, they cannot stand the addiction and they feel irritated. Thus, excessive time spent on games is not good for student’s health.

The incident where Cho Seung Hui shot students in the college was the effect of game addiction. Cho has played game for very long time and he found that killing people was not a difficult thing to do. Then he chose to kill people with pistols. This demonstrates the harmful effect of game addiction in the society.
