BEIJING - The 12 teenagers and young adults, some in ripped jeans and baggy T-shirts, sit in a circle, chewing gum and fidgeting as they shyly introduce themselves. "I'm 12 years old," one boy announces with a smile. "I love playing computer games. That's it." "It's been good to sleep" says another, a 17-year-old with spiky hair, now that he's no longer on the computer all day.

Playing screen-based games and in particular internet games such as Massive Multiplayer On-line Role Playing Games (MMORPG) are popular worldwide and many millions of people get a lot of pleasure from playing them. Some people however, have a particular nature that makes them more vulnerable than others to the risk of a dependency on gaming.
