Pope also wrote on Saturday that games like Modern Warfare were "one reason we are becoming more violent" as a society.
"Last year a premier league football club called me in to try to find out why the players weren't playing well in away games," he described. "I found that on the coaches to the matches they were all playing computer games."
He finished by saying, "I've got several patients who are what would be clinically termed addicted to... computer games. These things set the brain up for a pattern of gross fluctuation, too many highs and lows. For a short time, they can make people feel valued and boost their self-esteem. When they realise these feelings don't last, some people - particularly youngsters - can become down, even having feelings of depression."
Kudos to CVG for taking a stand on the Alan Titchmarsh program, by the way.
