Fortnite Divorces

Finding this article was surprising to me. It reminded me of how the World Health Organization has recently classified video game addiction as a disorder and of a story I read about a couple in South Korea years ago that abandoned and let their infant die at home because they were too busy playing at a gaming café in the country. I believe the HBO documentary Love Child is about that incident.

Video games are awesome and fun. Playing video games is one of my favorite past times in life. But what this article and the story I read shows me is I need to be careful with how much time I spend playing video games. Sure, it feels great to increase your rank or get further in a game, but if I am not too careful, then the game can distract me from what is really important in life!
