The Gaming Life, Peter Olafson, RobotStreetGang
When addiction takes precedence over living, the lines between reality and substance become blurred. In the case of Peter Olafson, freelance video game critic, there were no meetings to help him break free from his destructive video game obsession. As he recounts in this personal narrative, 'I would come home from work, play all night, go to bed as the sun came up, and limp into the newspaper late with an excuse on my tongue and my brain feeling like a great pale wad of steaming dough.' This seemingly hopeless gamer describes his journey through the video and offers a poignant narrative of an untraditional addiction.
