Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter’s called MMO players “addicts” in an interview with Reuters.

“I don’t think (online multiplayer games) get impacted at all, because people who play them are addicts,” he said.

“Losing their jobs makes them more likely to play because they have more time to play.”

There are some raw nerves in gaming, Michael, and this one’s inflamed and throbbing. Good luck.
