GameAddict is a simple but effective way to control gaming habits and limit and reduce the amount of time gamers use to play. A personalized gaming schedule regulates the gamer’s access to games (League of Legends, Blizzard and Steam), so that the gamer won’t be able to log in to their games and play during blocked periods.
“Our mission is to give gamers the tools and support that they need to curb excessive gaming and find the right balance between gaming and real life."
We can’t force anyone to play less, it has to be the gamer’s decision. Once this decision has been made, it’s our job to bring discipline to the table. We do this by enforcing a strict, bypass-proof gaming schedule.
Are you spending too much time playing computer and online games and you need to get your gaming under control? Do you set limits on gaming and then break them, playing hours and hours longer than you wanted? Do others in your life complain to you about your game use? Would you like to play just one or two LoL or Dota matches per day, but you end up playing 6-8 matches instead? Would you like to have a 2–3 days break from gaming, but your willpower just isn’t strong enough? GameAddict is the solution for you!
Peter Nemeckay, the co-founder of GameAddict and a former night-time gamer himself, says he was not able to control and cut down his League of Legends gaming time. The decision to play less or take a break never worked for more than a few days, it seemed impossible to harness enough discipline. He found the only way to reduce gaming was to give his game password to his brother and tell him: “Don’t give me the password for the next 5 days!”. This solution worked perfectly and it inspired him to create the GameAddict.
The personalized schedule hides the game passwords from the gamer during the blocked periods, when the gamer should not play. The passwords become visible again to the gamer during the open periods.
