    Should gaming be considered a religion?

    Hey y'all it's the Truth here.

    damn, u said what i was going to lol. But in a crazy sense of way, i bet some people play games more than some people go to church, so in a way, gaming could be considered a religion, and a brown box (first gaming consol ever made) could be the god XD.

    I think you might be confusing religion with addiction ... a religion in general is adherence to a particular belief or view. Addiction is a psychological or biological compulsion for something ...

    re·li·gion

    2. religion particular system: a particular institutionalized or personal system of beliefs and practices relating to the divine
    3. personal beliefs or values: a set of strongly-held beliefs, values, and attitudes that somebody lives by
    4. obsession: an object, practice, cause, or activity that somebody is completely devoted to or obsessed by
    The danger is that you start to make fitness a religion.

    as you can see, there's a thin line between the two
