I just got the link today of the movie my family and I are in about online game addiction. I speak real honestly and hope that seeing my face and hearing a part of my story might help you too...

I can't get it to work either. I get a message that says the URL is not valid and cannot be loaded. Hmmmm.

Open a new browser window

Open a new browser window and paste it in. Works in firefox. Good to hear you, you were the most coherent and direct person presented by far.

Dear Snow, this movie is

Dear Snow, this movie is awesome. Thank you so very, very much for having the courage to appear in it and to speak so honestly. Your entire family is so impressive and I am so proud of you! I also agree with ddp that you guys were by far the most well-spoken and reasonable of all the featured people. I know that videos are cut and edited, so perhaps the female gamer wasn't quite as dim as she sounded, but I really thought that you all had by far the better of the argument and certainly expressed yourselves in a way that could be easily understood and identified with by many. I wasn't quite sure what the deal with the male gamer was, is he still actively playing and "controlling" it or what? Jane

Thank you for all the

Thank you for all the feedback. I tried to be as honest and speak as frankly as possible. This isn't something to sugar coat, so I didn't do any of that... but it's really interesting to see that the gaming documentary kind of went in our favor. Getting Jason out of video game addiction was a hard, long road with lots of tears, and if someone reading these boards comes across this message, they can see a face, a family, and know a story of a real person who suffered from video game addiction. I only hope that this is a help for those who will follow after me in the years to come. If you're a widow and need help or a sympathetic ear, please send me a PM and I'll respond! I'm on my soap box now and unafraid to speak out...A I will not be silent any longer!
