Well, kind of, it's the convinced of video games that makes it worse than those other things I don't think you can golf for 24 or more hours straight, etc. At least overall gaming is cheaper than a lot of other hobbies.
My grandmother nearly divorced my grandfather after he retired because he played between 36 and 45 holes of golf 6 days a week. Teed off at 8ish in the morning and would come home around dinner time.
You may not be able to play golf for 24 straight hours but you can play it enough to create the same problems that playing video games does.
I've golfed and fished (still do on occasion). But those hobbies don't have the instant gratification or constant rewards like video games. Video games are definitely more addicting.
Again Ill refer to my granddad who was chasing a -10 handicap. To him the difference in 1 more putt per round or hole was all he needed to feed that monkey.
Any behavior can display the qualities and consequences of addiction. Its quite simple actually, when it begins to negatively impact your life or the people you care about you've probably gone too far.
