I have been a gamer since the age of six. As soon as I played Crash Bandicoot on the Playstation i've been hooked! Recently my drug of choice has been DC Universe Online but i've been through WoW, Skyrim, Dragon Age, Assassin's Creed etc to name just a few of the more recent drains on my time.
As part of one of my final projects at East 15 acting school a group of us have formed a company and here is our mission statement:
We want to explore the how do people, why do people, and what happens to people and their loved ones when they become addicted to gaming.
To make this as true as account as possible we would love some verbatim (true) stories from those who have suffered/ are suffering from gaming addiction.
I would be so very grateful if you could tell me your story either in this thread or through private message.
In performance we wouldn't use your real name, we may not use your whole story but it would be a vital part of a patch work of stories.
Thank you for your time
Hoping to learn and teach others the untold stories
