The American Psychiatric Association doesn't consider video game addiction to be a valid diagnosis at this point, a lot of research suggest that those playing video games excessivly have other problems, often some type of social anxiety disorder (An estimated 7% of the population suffer from it to some degree) and excessive time spent playing video games is usually just a symptom. (It is one of the most interesting solitary activites one can engage in these days).
