OP here: Massively Multiplayer Online (Role Playing Game, sometimes known as MMORPG). It's basically where you have a group of people you play with, and certain things depend on each character. Which is usually where the addiction comes in because leaving to go back to your real life means letting your friends on the game down, that's what got Dh sucked in to Everquest. Let's take Mario for the opposite example, you can save and quit anytime you please and are not playing with others (unless they are in the same room as you).

OP here: Thanks for all of the input ladies. I'm about to talk to him about it. Just needed to know about it first. When i say he was addicted before, it was so bad that he wouldn't shower for a week or more at a time because it would take time away from the game. It SERIOUSLY contributed to my PPD. And eventually the crap hit the fan. I asked him to compare the amount of time he spends playing to the amount of time he spends with his family. We MIGHT have gotten in 30 minutes in a whole week. He works from home, so he games while he's working, I don't mind that. But this would go on well into the middle of the night, when work had been over for hours. Sometimes I thought I'd rather him be at a bar, at least I'd know he was still alive. No matter what a mans vices are, whether its at a bar or playing games, if it's affecting your relationship, it's not right in my eyes.
