Anything that gives you a dopamine hit can be addictive if you're wired for it.
Some devs/publishers of sites and games have based their whole business model around targeting these people.
That's why treatment should center on the individual, not the current obsession of the individual. That seems to be the part most often missed by the media in their rush to find something to blame for society's ills.

I have just started dabbling in Elite Dangerous. It looks like it would be amazing in VR.


Dude, it's the bomb. It's the game, times 10. I'm rocking a Samsung Odyssey (on sale for $417 right now), but there are less expensive alternatives like this one from Dell for $259, or this one from HP for $223.

And even though they insist the minimum graphics card is a 1070 GTX, my Odyssey worked fine with my old 670 GTX, despite the Odyssey having 30% more resolution than most other headsets out there.

I'm addicted to Elite in VR. Is there a 12-step program for that?
