Video addiction is just as real as drug addictions!!!! This isn't just a past time. Start to research video addiction. You first have to help yourself understand it and why you put up with it---if he were drunk instead of on the video game--you may not be so accepting. Addiction destroys families--whatever the addiction may be......

My husband plays a live game a lot too. It used to bother me quite a bit, becaues he would come home from work and the first thing he did was go down to the office and plug into the game. But, we talked about it, talked about appropriate times for playing and the importance of having dinner together as a family. He did great with that; and would wait until the kids went to bed before he started gaming. Then I got irritated that I didn't get any quality time with him. So, we talked about that too -- he got me my own version of the game and we started playing a couple nights a week together. The other nights we sit down for a movie or do something together when the kids are asleep. But, he still gets his gaming in -- and gets to enjoy it, and now I understand a little better why he likes it so much.
But, I would say talking about it is the best place to start.
