Video game addicts need fresh air
My husband has a joke he likes to tell: “I never thought that at 27 I’d say the same thing to my wife that I said to my mom when I was 10. ‘Come on! Just one more game.’ ”
What he’s referring to is his preoccupation with video games. Unfortunately, his joke is based on reality. When Trey’s X Box died earlier this year it was akin to the passing of a distant relative. He was somewhat mournful.
As juvenile as playing video games seems to me, I know that Trey isn’t the only adult who will still spend hours in front of a game console. Many adults do — both women and men. In fact, studies have shown that people averaging age 35 are the ones who spend the most time playing.
