It's 10 pm. Do you know where you and your loved ones are? Here is a collection of experiences from those who live / have lived with an obsessive MMOG gamer and from those who have lived the experience of obsessive MMOG gaming.

Sometimes the obvious really doesn't hit you in the face until someone else brings it up. I am not a big fan of main media reporting about "MMOG addiction" because either the issues get dumbed down or it is painfully clear that a hidden agenda prevails.

Apparently the "addicted to WoW" has made it to the daily talkies via Tyra Banks which (going back to the obvious) made me realize that I had not thought of searching YouTube for clips MMOG gamers and / or their friends may have made already. So rather than giving you the embedded video for the talkshow segment, here is a link showing the results from my search on "addicted to world of warcraft" and "wow addiction". Look and judge for yourself. Has the time come when partners and friends of out-of-control MMOGers can show what they are going through?

Interestingly enough, searches on everquest did not yield that much.
