5.0 su 5 stelle I was hooked on games 12 dicembre 2012
Di Chandley L - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I would recommend this book to everyone that plays video games. I feel that way because I think it is important to be aware of the potential dangers of becoming addicted. I myself grew up playing video game but far from being an addict. I started becoming addicted to video games after I came home from Iraq. At first I turned to alcohol to numb the pain and take away the memories of war. Soon I couldn't function well because of hangovers and drinking $100.00 or more a week became very expensive. I traded one addiction for another. I turned to my Xbox and computer games. I still had an 8 hour job but I also put in 5-7 hours of gaming a day during the week (more on the weekend if I could) This became my routine because I was still suffering from PTSD and playing video games made me forget about what was going on around me. It also gave me an adrenal rush daily (especially if I played Call of Duty). I had depression because my brain stopped releasing some of the chemical I was flooded with while in combat. Call of Duty MW2 gave me that rush back. After reading this book it reinforces my fears. I have wasted so much time when I could be spending it with my wife or kids. I could have a PHD by now if I spent my time in college instead of gaming. I know I have a problem because I asked my 5 your old what he wants to be when he grows up. He told me, "I want to be like you dad, and play games all day." That really hurts. Thank you Dr. Doan for pointing me in the right direction to help me break my bad habit.

5.0 su 5 stelle A memoir about video game addiction strikes home 4 febbraio 2013
Di Daniel Chui - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I recently read the two-starred review about this book, where the reviewer complains that Dr. Doan spends so much of the text talking about his own life. When I read this book, which in part IS indeed a memoir of Dr. Doan's experiences growing up, what I MOST remembered and what most impacted me was reading about his life.

The power of Hooked on Games is based on the very fact that Dr. Doan's poured so much of his own life story into the text. From his beginnings as a Vietnamese growing up as the only Asian in a mostly White area, to how he got into video games in the first place, to how it nearly ruined his marriage, these are all things that ANY video-game addict can identify with. As a child, his mother gave him $10 to spend for lunch while at the mall. He subsequently went and spent all $10 of it (more than 2 hours of work for his mother's 4$/hour wage) on an arcade game. As an adult, Dr. Doan had his son harvesting gold in World of Warcraft and got angry at him when he left his designated area on the map. These types of moments, which Dr. Doan shares with us, are precisely what set this book apart. There are plenty of places to find information, support groups, and twelve-step programs for free online. What sets Hooked on Games apart from the rest is PRECISELY Dr. Doan's story of how he overcame his addiction and of how this addiction affected his goals and almost ruined his family life. The overall message of the story is overwhelmingly positive.

The fact that a physician, a member of a highly-respected profession where reputation is EVERYTHING has humbly admitted to a life of problems related to video games, makes the point strike even closer to home. I myself am a graduate student and have battled with video game addiction my entire life. Dr. Doan cited sources about how gamers will often experience hallucinatory after-images after playing for a long time. When I was growing up, my friend and I played Twisted Metal all afternoon and I couldn't sleep the rest of the night because of the explosions in my brain. Video games have affected my family and personal relationships. In my life I have probably devoted months if not entire years to playing games.

The last thing I wanted to impress upon those thinking of buying this book is that this may be the first book that truly convinces you that you have an addiction to video games. It is SO easy to imagine that video game addicts are your typical low-achieving individuals, people that spend all day in a Korean PC room with no friends whatsoever. The greatest strength of Dr. Doan's story is showing that game addicts are not just high-school dropouts or unmotivated individuals. Addiction can happen to anybody, even the highest-achieving individuals in our society: doctors, CEOs.

Additionally, I really like that Dr. Doan overall argument is not that video games are the Devil and invariably cause addiction, but rather that certain individuals simply cannot play in moderation. There is a big difference there. Frankly, I would not have read more than 20 pages of the text if I had to put up with a holier-than-thou prescriptivist account of how games are the Devil's work. Rather, over the course of the book you FEEL Dr. Doan's enthusiasm for games. You KNOW that he is a gamer, like you. You can even feel his slight nostalgia through his writing about Diablo, Ultima Online, etc. And then he shows you how his addiction negatively impacted his life and threatened his goals.

One last thing: while Dr. Doan does adopt a Christian approach near the end of the book, he is extremely respectful and suggests this option for those who have not found answers through secular means. I find this tasteful in that he does not force his beliefs on the reader.

I have read this book and Cyber Junkie and while I recommend both, Dr. Doan's was the more engaging read in my opinion. Thank you so much for writing this, Dr. Doan.. as an Asian-American, a graduate student, and a video game addict, I really appreciate your hard work and your candor in sharing your life with us. Also thank you for making the book available on Amazon Prime Kindle borrowing.

P.S. - ironically, Dr. Doan's enthusiasm for the games he has played is a double-edged sword. I will warn readers that the book contains many triggers for a wide variety of games.. i.e. things that might make you want to put down the book and go find a Stone of Jordan in Diablo ;). But the engaging prose kept me hooked from beginning to end.

5.0 su 5 stelle It hit home 4 dicembre 2012
Di eliz - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This book hit home. I couldnt believe it - 95% of what Dr Andrew wrote in the book - I have had first hand experience with. It is time insurance came up with an official diagnostic code to provide help to these addicts and also indirectly help those helpess victims who are married to/parents of video game addicts or internet addicts.

As my family spends more and more time with a screen in front of their face, I get more concerned. This book validates those concerns. 'Hooked on Games' is easy to read, and a good balance of real life experience and science to back it up.

5.0 su 5 stelle Vital information for parents 18 luglio 2013
Di Julie - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Andrew Doan and Brooke Strickland have done a phenomenol job of weaving together his personal story and their research into a vital and compelling book jam packed with information every parent should be acutely aware of. PARENTS: from an early age, guard your children. Know what they are doing. Provide activities for them apart from technology (ie: sports,etc) Monitor & limit computer usage, I-phone, etc. Educate yourselves and them to the dangers this book reveals. Head it off at the pass!
I appreciate that Doan makes it clear that not all gaming is bad or evil, that it can be educational. Not everyone that "games" will become addicted - just as not everyone who enjoys a beer or a glass of wine will become an Alcoholic. However, the world needs to be awakened to the potential dangers of this generations newest form of potential destruction - gaming. This book brings that awareness into full view. As well, it offers a way out for those that do become addicted. Read it to find out! Thank you Andrew and Brooke.
