The World Health Organisation have decreed the addiction to video games is officially a medical condition. Yee gods! How long before every couch potato wanker is making an appointment with his quack to get him/herself signed off and excused work/school to get over their problem. I see no problem with removing all their gear for playing the games and setting them out on a project to distract them. This for adults could be a thing called work and for kiddie winkies a place called school. Anything else is a licence to skive.
