Have video games totally taken over your life? Is your game play increasingly getting out of control? Have your friends or family confronted you about your gaming habit? How about your marriage or personal relationships – are they being affected? Is it difficult to balance work and gaming time? Do you sometimes skip doing homework or household responsibilities to play? Have you played video games as a way of escaping your problems? Has your game playing habit become so encompassing that you may need to go to rehab to kick it? If you can identify with any of the above, MTV wants to hear from you.

If you appear to be between the ages of 17 and 29 please email us at [email protected] and tell us ALL of the following: Your age, your city and state, why you feel you’re addicted to gaming, and how its affecting your life. Be sure to include a recent picture or two and a current phone number.

  1. First off, I have a brother who is very addicted to game call War Craft. He spends every single day on the computer playing for nearly 20 hours plus. He can stay up over night and won’t sleep while playing these game. I have a computer that will cut him off if I connect online and then he will have to resign in to play the game again. He gets furious and high degree of anger. It scares the hell out of anyone in the household. My brother does not have a job, no kids, never marry, and he is 37 year old. He was a recent ex-military Captain. If the phone ring, he won’t pick it up. There isn’t another way to yield him off the game. Does anyone know how to get help for this person? Thank you
