Ugly Scientist Says: Blame Blizzard
Apparently, Doctor Orzack here with her crazy Space: 1999 backdrop is a specialist in addiction treatment. Specifically, she treats video game addiction. What she says must be right. She’s an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School.
RW: Then aren’t the issues at home more of a problem than the actual games themselves?
Dr. Orzack: No, I disagree. You can’t say that about Blizzard, which structures the games like World of Warcraft to be addictive. They design these MMORPGs to keep people in the game. I do think the problem is tied in with other things like family issues, but the games themselves are inherently addictive. That’s ultimately the cause of the problem.
Maybe it’s the Harvard, Illinois Medical School, on the site of the old closed down Motorola plant. Certified by a guy named Jerry that fixes muscle cars out of his garage. They save time in surgery classes by glossing over the whole “sterile surgical field” thing.
