Reality Sucks

Second Skin is a visually stunning documentary about video game addiction. Following the lives of seven avid gamers, Second Skin offers an insight into World of Warcraft and Everquest players who devote a significant amount of their social life to virtual reality. While some gamers find love and romance, others play to the point of losing their jobs and being evicted. This documentary lets the gamers speak for themselves and refuses to push a single interpretation or agenda. Highly recommended!

people who gain threatening addictions to anything are simply just weak people. i played wow on and off for years and always seemed to live a productive life, as a teenager rather.

I think this is a bit of an over generalization. Emotional or physical differences may make someone more prone to an addiction than another. I don't know if I'd call this weakness, but if it is, society should address this 'weakness' just as we address weaknesses in literacy, or physical abilities. These people need support and kindness, I haven't seen the actual video but I hope its intent isn't embarrassment.

since i'm on adbusters, i wonder how effective it is to cultural jam? cultural jamming takes place in a "world that doesn't exist." playing with images,texts and sounds instead of being on the streets. how can one manage to be heard in cyberspace? creating more catz memes? http://elgueromestizo.blogspot.com/
