While playing your favorite games can seem like a harmless way to spend your free time, this behavior can sometimes spiral into a serious video game addiction. With the recent popularity of online games such as World Of Warcraft and Diablo II, an increasing number of people are spending hours in front of their televisions and computer screens. Many experts believe online games are more addictive than traditional video games. Since online games come with chat rooms and other interactive features, players become involved in a virtual community.

Final Fantasy is arguably one of the longest and largest gaming franchises in existence, it’s been across four generations of consoles and is about to emerge into a third. It’s been ported across consoles over time and been shrunk down into handheld chunks of fun on the DS and PSP, it’s spawned new series of games that range from pseudo hack ‘n’ slash to Real Time Strategies (FF Tactics) and even been through 2 incarnations on film.

Chavez didn’t bash all games though. He feels that video games are all right if they’re educational and pose no threat to socie
There's a little art-house movie out there that has a few fans. You may have heard of it. There was never any question that Avatar was going to be big, but I'll admit honest surprise by how big it actually is. Pretty much everyone out there seems to have seen it, even people who normally don't have much interest in genre movies. Even more shockingly, Avatar looks like it has a chance of dethroningTitanic as the number one movie of all time.
At this year's CES, 3D televisions made a big push for mainstream attention, and will start showing up in homes this year. If people enamored by Avatar's 3D theatrical experience bring home 3D television sets, that will lead to 3D video gam
