Synopsis

PLAYSTATION NATION gives parents what they need to know to save their kids from addiction to videogames -- before and after exposure. One out of five kids becomes addicted to computer and video games. Each year the video game industry raises its revenue (projected to reach $33 billion by 2008) with newer, more advanced, and more addictive games -- games that are increasingly linked to violent and self-destructive behavior in such high-profile tragedies as the Columbine and Paducah shootings. Is your child at risk, and if so, what can you do? PLAYSTATION NATION exposes the very real threat of video games to our children: their capacity to turn vibrant, well-balanced kids into emotionally and socially impaired individuals unable to function as productive members of society. Spurred on by the patterns of addiction they saw developing in their own son, Kurt and Olivia Bruner share their message with concerned parents grappling with the videogame dilemma and arm them with hard facts about addiction. Using the personal stories of former video game addicts to help parents identify the warning signs in their children, the Bruners recommend courses of action for all circumstances: kids who have not been exposed to videogames, those who are light users, and those whose patterns of use indicate heavy dependence. PLAYSTATION NATION is a must-read for all parents.

High school counselor and mom 8. Oktober 2006
Von Marie Link - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a chilling book as it describes the addiction to video games that are of serious concern regardless of the good or bad content of individual games. Boys and young men are becoming addicted to games that are interferring with their high school and college years and even into their marriages. One of the chapters is appropriatly entitled "Lost Boys". I grieve for the lost potental stolen away by video and computer games. I recommend this book highly to parents who are struggling with trying to control video games in their homes and achieve balance with something that was supposed to be for recreation but is now taking over all of their kid's free time. The behavior that I have observed regarding my own sons, their friends, and students at school is accurately described in my book.

A Wake Up Call for Parents 18. Dezember 2006
Von M. R. Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is not another false alarm from overly anxious 'experts'. The research is compelling: video games are highly addictive. I have four boys who play and I see the signs of addiction: loss of interest in other formerly enjoyed ctivities, inability to stop playing or set limits on their own behavior, willing to risk negative consequences for more play time (sneaking, whining, etc.). I see video games the same way I see alcohol. Many people can drink alcohol without becoming addicted. Many kids can play video games without becoming addicted. Regardless of which category you believe your kids are in, read this book. Educate your kids and parents of kids who clearly have a problem limiting their play. I'm returning all video games this Christmas and am giving my kids board games instead.

Experianced Gamer 5. Februar 2007
Von R. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I used to play many games all the way from the first Nintendo through to Playstation 2, and still feel the aftermath of addiction. Most of my gaming experience consisted of RPG's (Role Playing Games) and MMORPG's (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games). I am currently married and have a child on the way, and have many friends that play video games on a regular basis (When ever they are not at work). They shared much of the same enthusiasm as I did, and always talked about the newest games, and the amount of development their characters went through. I have mostly found that gaming allowed me to be someone I could not, in real life. Playstation Nation has helped me to realize most of the addictive qualities in the gaming industry. This should be no surprise considering Gamboling, Smoking, Drinking, and doing Drugs, are all Billion Dollar industries, and you look at the sticker on PC games: "40 Million Sold" (you would think they would add the same addictive qualities targeting children and adults alike).

Must Read for Parents (& kids) 3. November 2012
Von Beth Piazza - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
After reading this book, and reading parts of it to my 10 & 12 year old, we are all in agreement that the video games need to go! Even my children realize they do not want to grow up to be like the men described in the book. 20 & 30 year old men with no goals outside of their game score?!? No, thank you! This book has succeeded in opening my children's eyes to the addictive nature of video games. Although many games are "harmless", there is still very little value in playing them. I'm grateful to Oliva Bruner for writing this book and arming my family with the information to steer away from a useless time-wasting activity.

Mom of Two Boys 5. April 2007
Von J. Stinson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book was the push I need to stop game playing in our home. The authors spelled out exactly what was happening with my two boys and online game playing. It was like reading dialogue from my boys and I. Since, the boys stopped playing online games our entire household is a much more peaceful place with the boys spending their time playing outside, reading, using their imaginations and I am no longer the bad mom constantly telling the kids to get off the computer. I feel like our children, teens, and young men are having their lives stolen by computer games. It is a free choice but it is truly addictive. Think of the hours wasted playing online games, especially while a child is growing up. I have friends whose husbands spend hours playing games. What a loss. I recommend this book to all.
