Everyone knows addiction is a problem, with regards to drug use, as that being the worst of addictions.
Gaming addiction is on the rise though, with MMO's being the root cause (WoW pretty much leading the forefront). *note: i'm not basing this thread on scientific research, but you guys can agree there is such a thing. This is all merely my opinion on the matter.
In regards to Minecraft, is there such a thing?
I'm pretty convinced there is.
I know that if i'm not playing minecraft; i'm thinking about it, dreaming about it, watching youtube videos (LP's mainly) or visiting this forum (and reading notchs blog/twitter when i get a chance).
Theres something about this game, that's different then most games out there that keeps drawing me back to it. I have pc games and ps3 games, but rarely play them thanks to Minecraft.
I do have a life and a job, and hang out with friends, but MC is always in the back of my mind throughout the day.
Out of the many many video games I've played, Minecraft is the only one that kept me up playing too late for too many nights in a row until I overslept one morning and was three hours late for work. I'm a relatively responsible 35 year old guy, and I got into trouble at my real-life job because I love playing Minecraft so much.
Yes, this is the most addicting game I've ever encountered.
It's addictive alright, there's always something to do. You can build pretty much anything you can think of. Exploring the randomly generated worlds is great, you never know what you're gonna see.

I'm not a very patient person. So I use Minecraft to train my patience. I do that by thinking about Minecraft when I need to wait.
That's my excuse. I get less bored when I'm usually bored, thanks, Minecraft.
