    I don't think they should have restrictions as I think everyone should have as much freedom as possible.

    Gaming actually helped me through my childhood as I was being bullied everywhere - school, sports, when playing outside, etc. It only became a problem after high school. Because it made getting a social life more difficult. I think at primary and high school it wasn't a problem because it gave me something to do. I wasn't part of the cool kids groups anyways and all my mates had a similar lifestyle.

    But now it's a problem at times, like I said. I'm moving to a new house next week and am planning to get rid of my Xbox 360 and my PC (replace it by a netbook with Linux so I can't game on it anymore) to make sort of a fresh start. If I don't have any games within reach I won't be able to get distracted from PUA and school by it.

    For those in the same situation: if you are a gaming addict and really serious about changing your lifestyle, which is probably why you're here, get rid of all of it. Even the old stuff like the NES. Keeping it around is like having a bag of cocaine next to your bed as an ex-drug addict. Then practise PUA.

    I'm with Virgil on this, if you want video game restrictions you need look no further than China:

    "In recent years, the Chinese Government has shown increasing concern over what it perceives as problems with the addictions to and negative influences from video games. In an effort to combat addiction in online gaming for example, time restrictions have been implemented, which hamper the players capabilities in game, creating incentive to take a break."

    From wiki.
