But heres the root of the problem - they wont admit to it. How am I suppose to help them if theyre unwillin to admit to the problem right? They are on my xbox friends list, and they're always on - doesnt matter if its 2am on a friday, noon on a monday or 8pm on a sunday - the only times they are off is when they are sleeping. From what ive seen, they play at least 15hrs per day, every day of the week playing mainly 2 games on xbox. Sometimes upwards of 18-20hrs, for instance just over Xmas eve, Xmas day and the 26th...they were on for at least 20hrs each day...I dont even think they took a break throughout those 3 days. I guess xbox is more important than spending time with friends and family? They are pure online players, they got the hardcore team thing going on (forgot the name sorry) - I know a lot may think that they pause the game at times throughout the day and that could explain why theyre always online, but not true...theyre always playing because whenever I log on or check my msgs you can tell...and theyre always in some online deathmatch. I mean Im not trying to be nosey or anything but I cant help but notice it thats all. I feel sorry for them. I would never play for that long, I mean they play mainly 2 games and they can play either one for 12+ straight hours non stop. Even if I had the time to play games for that long, no way would I even choose to do so, I got better much more beneficial things to do with my time - like working out, playing sports, etc. I think i would want to kill myself if I became a total couch potato. What would you say to these girls? Yes thats right they are girls, even more ironic huh? Girls playing xbox for 15-20hrs a day, everyday has got to be the most unheard of thing ever. They say they have an active social life, have bf's, go to school and work part time and play sports. Uhh I doubt that, pretty hard to be doing all that while playing a video game for 15 hours straight everyday I mean most people dont even work 15hrs a day, 7 days a week...and if they did, I can gaurentee it would be pretty darn tough to squeeze in school, sports and 15hrs of gaming into that schedule.
