Adrenaline kick through gaming syndrome.
When a game addict is playing the game, hundreds of exciting and fun things are happening. This leads to adrenaline building up in the body. When a game addict is participating in the game, hundreds of cool stuff are going on at the same time, most of which, very exciting things. Animals or monsters are trying to kill the gamer, maybe some other player is trying to attack the gamer, maybe the gamer just looted some fantastic item which will improve his or her gameplay. There are tons and tons of very exciting things that can happen during a gameplay.
This triggers something called "Adrenaline kick though gaming". It means that a game addict due to all the excitement in the game gets an adrenaline kick. Adrenaline is built in the body as a survival defense mechanism. It's a fight and flight mechanism.
This is how it worked millions of year ago: I have a little injury. But here comes a lion. Last time I saw a lion, it went for the throat on one of our tribe members and ripped him apart.
Based on this experience, I now understand that I need to run or attack in order to survive.
Adrenaline is now building up in my body.
I don't feel the little injury I had seconds ago.
Adrenaline gives me strength and disables the pain signals I had seconds ago.
Now I can fight or flight in order to survive.
Ever heard of those extreme stories where skinny mothers lift a 2-ton truck to save her child? Where does she get the strength from? Adrenaline of course (and probably loads of other chemicals that are produced in the body for the extreme situations, but that's a question for a doctor) Do you think she would stop if she had a little injury in her hand? No! The adrenaline makes her not feel the pain. Most of the people that have been in a fist fight know this as well. After the fist-fight, the pain comes after, and we usually discover that the fists are bleeding because we hit the person in the face and hit his teeth with cause an open wound to our fist. The adrenaline makes us not feel that pain until after the fight when the adrenaline levels dropped.
A similar thing is happening when gaming. Like mentioned before. Lots of fun and exciting things are happening in the game which leads to adrenaline build up in the body.
