Oh man, not this argument again! First they blamed violence on video games, and now they're saying indulging in such past times can be bad for your mental health.

According to this new two-year study, which surveyed more than 3,000 school-age children, one in ten could be classified as a video game addict. The study admits that while these children were already prone to behavioral issues, they believe that playing video games intensified them.

So what are the drawback of being a game junkie at such a young age? While the researchers didn't put a number on how many youngsters had mental problems, they did find that those who played longer hours, were more impulsive or had poorer social skills were at higher risk of getting "addicted" over the 2-year period.

Those who did become addicted reported increasing symptoms of depression, anxiety and social phobia.
