Video Game Overdose

I enjoy a good video game with the rest of them.

This writer has classified I certain portion of humanity that, after playing video games too long, has trouble re-connecting with reality. In one case a woman shook a live tree after playing Animal Crossing (in which trees often contain treasure, obtained by shaking them) for too long. In another, a man returned to work after playing Quake for hours, to find that he saw his coworkers, on some level, as potential targets.

I have already classified that segment of humanity. They are called "crazy people."

This, by the way, is why I never play any video game for more than 72 hours straight. Now hand me the joystick, I need to drive to the supermarket.
