How Much Gaming Is Too Much?

Spending hours playing video games can’t be good for you. In fact, it can be time-consuming, expensive, and even ruin relationships if it becomes more than a habit. If any of this sounds familiar, then it might be time to put down the controller!

Gaming addictions are real everyone, and research shows that our friends across the pond have cancelled on a date, and even taken a day off work in favour of spending time online.

When considering gaming gear, such as earphones or gloves, it’s good to know all the details by reading guides like this one or just browsing popular gaming sites and look for the gadget you need and want.

Online hosting providers, Westhost recently carried out the research into America’s gaming habits which revealed what it is about gaming they enjoy so much and how dedicated they really are to the cause.

So how important is gaming? Here are just some of the surprising stats:

  • 43.5% of Americans have ignored calls in order to stay in and play video games
  • 38.7% have lied to friends in order to play video games
  • 15.3% of Americans have pretended to be sick in order to stay in and play video games
