While looking for information based on the effects of video games I came across a page which was called top 10 cases of extreme game addiction, after reading through the stories I came across one which I found more interesting than others, the story was about a male who wanted a sword for his avatar which his friend had, the male wanted this so badly that he stabbed him while he was sleeping. This story shows the addiction and effects of what a person can have during a game.
