    What do you think, are games addictive? You may say that you simply like playing them and there is nothing wrong with that, but what if you are playing Candy Crush for 6 hours a day? Is that fun or an addiction?

    • Just under half a million people play 6 hours each day
    • Over 9 million people play for at least 3 hours a day

    Would you spend $2,600 in one day in Candy Crush? One person did, and later on they spent another $1,060 on the game. Are they addicted or just having fun?

    This is not what I would call healthy or desirable. Read this article in The Guardian for more information and gaming, addiction and Candy Crush.
