I performed research on video games from the spring through the summer of 2018, looking to better understand the subject for purposes of counseling. I was a video game junkie going up. At its worst I played 13 hours of World of Warcraft in a single day, most days of the week. The video game industry and hobby are growing rapidly and have been since the introduction of smartphones. While video games can be defined in numerous ways (e.g. MMORPG vs. social gaming), the action of playing a digital game of some sort has only ballooned in recent years.
