When do you think the line between reality and virtual reality is crossed? When can cyberspace become too real, or too much of a replacement for "real" life? When does the internet become unhealthy or dangerous?

Reality vs Virtual Reality

The line between reality and virtual reality is cross when people start to mistake reality with virtual reality. Cyberspace can become too real when people get pull into virtual reality games. Then they spend unless hours on the computer which becomes unhealthy because people may become addicted, and being on the computer a lot may cause health issues. Cyberspace creates these world that people can escape to for a minute, but it does not help people solve their problems, and it does not help people to live through reality and the problems they may face in life.
In virtual reality, people create false worlds and that gives them control on how this world runs, but then these games takes control over people's lives because then people would rather play these games than go outside and interact with people. This would decrease people's communication skills.
The internet is useful to everyone because it provides people with an immense amount of information, but the internet becomes dangerous when people depends on it too much which may decrease the interaction of people because they use the internet for everything.
