BBC article on Games addiction

A recent BBC article about games addiction. With a comment from Therapist Matthew Preece who believes games are being designed to be addictive;

Here is some of my quotes from the Guardian as I don’t agree with him.

Procter says that game makers “should be aware that the product they’re making will have an impact on players”, and that “there will always be a responsibility for makers to consider their impact on the world”.

“As designers, we should recognise this rise in games addiction, and have an open discussion about industry wide safeguards along with parent education,” he says.
