PostIs it possible for a PC game to be too addictive?

This video kinda does a great job of answering the question. (plus it happens to be the trailer for Sid Meier's Civilization V )

I believe some ppl have proved that PC games can be too addictive but I believe its isnt because of the games only because of their personality.

As examples we got ppl who starves to death and such things because they didnt bother to eat. + I can also mention an example from this forum but I wont name any names so lets call him "Xss". Back in the old 9d days this "Xss" were online atleast 20 hours a day with only a few(3-5) hours AFK. Thats what I call an addiction. But in the end it went positive and he didnt touch the game anymore :)

yups, I agree 100% ... rumor has it that the idiot used to set alarms on his mobile to make sure he'd be there for wei and refused to go out with friends on weekends cuz of x2 .... what an idiot!!

The fool blames it on escapism and that statement in itself is in agreement of what ur saying man!
