Op Ed

Fox News - 'Fortnite' and the collapse of parenting. "There is nothing more irresponsible than a boy on a videogame binge." Except perhaps an author trying to sell books.

I wonder where WHO was when too many people watch TV and they now need to make it an addiction.

No one has stayed up 50 hours straight watching TV. However, most on this site have done that playing video games before. Some have played games until death. It's a bit different due to the interactivity.

Right... I'm pretty sure I've spent more of my life gaming than anyone else I know, and my record for a consecutive session is mayyybe 15 hours. But that includes several breaks for eating, using the bathroom, and just plain stretching the legs. And when that happens overnight, where I try staying up as long as I can for the hell of it, I don't think I've ever been more than 30 or so hours without sleeping.

Granted, I'm not insane, nor have I attempted such feats with the aid of performance enhancers like amphetamines or cocaine. Which I assume are among the requirements for the 50-hour achievement.

50 hour or 30 hours, the point is that it's much more difficult to do that watching TV. We've all had that experience where you are gaming in the evening, and the next thing you know, it's getting light outside. I hear that story from gamers all the time, I don't hear that from TV binge watchers. As for myself, I haven't done that in 20 years. But we're talking about kids, who may not have the willpower to stop. Thus parents need to step in and set boundaries.
