Video games can be addictive. I think anyone who’s played a particularly engrossing game can attest to that fact. I’ve been guilty of staying up until the wee hours of the morning playing my RPGs, and I only forced myself to kick the habit after showing up to work looking like a zombie in the days ahead.

The image and video you see here comes from Lyon, France during the Fête des Lumières (Festival of Lights) 2011, where they played pinball on the side of a building.
