Addicted to puzzles?

I am slightly worried about my little brother. He acts odd.

I showed him how to play DOTT and he wanted to try too. Now, he doesn't understand much of English, but he still loves the game. He has completed it twice already (with me telling how to solve the puzzles) and he still keeps starting over and over again from the beginning. Now he doesn't need me anymore because he remembers the solutions by heart.

What's wrong with him? He has no idea what is going on since he doesn't understand the dialogue. He just solves the puzzles over and over again and laughs at Dr. Fred.

A future adventure gamer maniac in the making? He might enjoy them more if he learned English, though.

He has done the same thing with Grim Fandango. The Dig and Sam&Max haven't interested him very much.

He sounds like a pretty dedicated gamer indeed. Hey, who doesn't laugh at Doctor Fred?

Yeah, but my brother imitates him too. If I am around when he plays he starts to do that thing with his hands and cackles "The plans! The plans!". It's weird.
