Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

May 27, 2009 -

The National Institute on Media and the Family, which seems to have adopted video game addiction as its primary game-related issue of late, recently used its Twitter account to point to a Frontline video report on gaming in South Koria. 

Part of the report examines the struggle of an adolescent boy to balance his game play with the other facets of his life and looks at the government-run anti-game addiction camp he attends.

It's ironic.

South Korea, the most Wired place on Earth...

Can someone text them Starcraft is 10 years old and they might want to move on? I don't think verbal conversation works with them anymore.

 

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

11 years old and still the best game ever.

South Korea is a Christian country...therefore we should be like them.

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_South_Koreamikedo2007

That's not technically correct.  Even though the christianity religion looks like it's dominating SK, Buddhism is still very strong in SK.  You can look at  the link above (sorry If it looks different then what I'm doing, I'm typing from my work at NIH, I'm a summer student).  I liked the video, but they're going to need to fix the addiction.  The NIMF is using South Korea as their back up evidence to support US's youth game addiction.  I don't see the link between South Korea's and US's game addiction.  South Korea does not equal to USA.    

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

south korea is not a christian country

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

Yeah, they're not...

If you're going to bash something, at least don't pull a Jack Thompson...

Remember kids, only YOU can prevent yourself from making a fool of yourself.

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

So, if there were game addiction on Mars, that would totally back NIMF´s affirmations about addiction on USA?

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

First, just a quick spellcheck, "report on gaming in South Koria."

Second, doesn't "national" typically mean within the nation it belongs to?

What are they going to claim all cultures are exactly the same with the same heritage, social upbringing, economy, and values?

Or ar they just going to use this as a scare tactic to convince people that video game addiciton is a real thing even though it is simply a form of entertainment similar to books and television, except often more engaging and immersive? (I say often because I have played Shaq Fu which does not meet either qualification.)

I'd have to guess the second one.

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

Because gaming addiction only happens in South Korea.

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

In SK, games are a way of life. It's not something you put down after an hour... or two... or three... or four...

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

yeah, nobody ever died at a soccer game.

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

lots of people have died at a soccer game, via the crowd pushing against the railings

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

yeah, i meant that comment to be taken as sarcasm.

What i meant is that people die doing lots of things. Smoking is still legal in most countries, yet that kills not only the user, but has the strong possibility to infect or kill people not chosing to partake.

Re: Frontline Looks at Video Game Addiction in South Korea

Who mentioned soccer?

Matthew Wilsonthe lose of nn would not be good for us, but it will not be good for verizion/comcast/att in the long run ether.04/24/2014 - 2:16pm
Matthew Wilsonsadly yes. it would take another sopa day to achieve it.04/24/2014 - 2:13pm
NeenekoI am also confused. Are you saying NN would only become law if Google/Netflix pushed the issue (against their own interests)?04/24/2014 - 2:10pm
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, you are saying a lot of things but I am still unclear on your point. Are you saying that the loss of Net Neutrality will be good in the long run?04/24/2014 - 2:06pm
Matthew WilsonOfcourse it does I never said it did not.though over time the death of NN will make backbone providers like Google, level3 and others stronger becouse most isps including the big ones can not provid internet without them. they can peer with smaller isps04/24/2014 - 1:54pm
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, and that still plays in Google's favor over their smaller rivals who don't have the muscle to stand up to ISPs.04/24/2014 - 1:45pm
Matthew Wilsongoogle wont pay becouse they control a large part of the backbone that all isps depend on. if verizon blocks their data, google does the same. the effect is Verizon loses access to 40% of the internet, and can not serve some areas at all.04/24/2014 - 1:14pm
Neenekolack of NN is in google and netflix interest. It is another tool for squeezing out smaller companies since they can afford to 'play'04/24/2014 - 12:57pm
Matthew WilsonI have said it before net nutrality will not be made in to law until Google or Netflix is blocked, or they do what they did for sopa and pull their sites down in protest.04/23/2014 - 8:02pm
Andrew EisenGee, I guess putting a former cable industry lobbyist as the Chairman of the FCC wasn't that great of an idea. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/24/technology/fcc-new-net-neutrality-rules.html?_r=204/23/2014 - 7:26pm
Andrew EisenIanC - I assume what he's getting at is the fact that once PS3/360 development ceases, there will be no more "For Everything But Wii U" games.04/23/2014 - 5:49pm
Andrew EisenMatthew - Yes, obviously developers will eventually move on from the PS3 and 360 but the phrase will continue to mean exactly what it means.04/23/2014 - 5:45pm
IanCAnd how does that equal his annoying phrase being meaningless?04/23/2014 - 5:09pm
Matthew Wilson@Andrew Eisen the phrase everything but wiiu will be meaningless afer this year becouse devs will drop 360/ps3 support.04/23/2014 - 4:43pm
Andrew EisenFor Everything But... 360? Huh, not many games can claim that title. Only three others that I know of.04/23/2014 - 3:45pm

Andrew EisenI love RPGs but I didn't much care for Tales of Symphonia. I didn't bother with its sequel.04/23/2014 - 11:21am
InfophileIt had great RPGs because MS wanted to use them to break into Japan. (Which had the side-effect of screwing NA PS3 owners out of Tales of Vesperia. No, I'm not bitter, why do you ask?)04/23/2014 - 10:52am
RedMageI'm still disappointed the 360 never broke into Japan either. It had a bevy of great RPGs in the late 2000s.04/23/2014 - 9:48am
