So people have been talking a lot about “game addiction recently. This Blogma post (from C|Net): Subliminal rescue for game addicts? kind of scared me. Two things about this scare me:
- Subliminal shit that makes you not want to play games… Seems like it could make you not want to do anything. Mind control stuff is just creepy. I mean who verifies that all it is doing is making you not want to play games? Soon we’ll need a “subliminal verification agency” that makes sure all this crap is only doing what it says it’s doing. And can we really trust the agency?
- Games addiction…. uhm yeah. I wish people would get their heads around “personal responsibility.” Sigh. I’m not going to get started on this.
