Video game addiction has been compared to compulsive gambling as both may stem from a clinical impulse control disorder. Casinos warn players to watch for signs of compulsive gambling, but video games often don’t.

A federal judge is allowing a negligence lawsuit filed by Craig Smallwood against NCsoft to proceed. Smallwood alleges he became so addicted to the online virtual-world game Lineage II that he is “unable to function independently in usual daily activities such as getting up, getting dressed, bathing or communicating with family and friends.”

Smallwood is reported to by Wired.com to claim he would not have begun playing the NCsoft game Lineage II if he was aware of how addicting the game is. He claims to have played Lineage II for 20,000 hours between 2004 and 2009.
