Would you consider your DH addicted to a game if he spends his downtime playing it or if he isn't playing he is watching your tube videos about playing the game?

I ask because DH has spent any downtime he has had this last week (he was on Vaca from work) playing XBOX. Now he is laying in bed next to me watching videos of game play. Lol. I think it's funny and am giving him shit about being addicted. The game play does not take any time away from work or family so it's not an issue.

NO he is not addicted.  If he were truly addicted your family life and his job would be suffering.

Only if they are neglecting other things. If not, doesn't bother me.

No. It's okay to have outside interests.

I would LOVE if hubby would take some down time and play xbox with the kids or even by himself.
We are all fed up with his stick in the ass Drill Sargeant asshole attitude.

It depends on if he can function without the game.
