The way I see it , WHO is trying to make it official under a new type of addiction, so that it can be treated officially .
Here as an article .
In the beta draft of the WHO’s upcoming 11th update of International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), due out in 2018, gaming disorder is now included as an affliction. Folks who suffer from the disorder are said to have “impaired control over gaming,” which is to say an inability to control the frequency, intensity, duration, and context of their habits. WHO also notes that those who prioritize video games over “other life interests and daily activities” and continue to escalate the amount that they play “despite the occurrence of negative consequences” are also showing symptoms of the newly classified disorder.

“The behavior pattern is of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational, or other important areas of functioning,” the draft reads. “The gaming behavior and other features are normally evident over a period of at least 12 months in order for a diagnosis to be assigned, although the required duration may be shortened if all diagnostic requirements are met and symptoms are severe.”


The same things goes with animal hoarding , took a while to officially call it a disorder under HD as DSM-5

As someone who has been known to jiggle the sticks now and again, I'm still not sure why I should care. This isn't an attack, it is a banal classification of something virtually everybody has known about for years.

As soon as I heard this, all that popped in my mind was Disney, because Disney loves money


They care enough for people to keep spending money that they would prevent people from actually focusing on anything else in their lives.

Fucking Disney, I know you're behind this you can't hide the truth

You can't hide anymore, just buy the world already and end this dog and pony show.

Mental disorder, don't make me laugh, they just want to defend people who spend money on games to help feed corporations. they reach out to people like adults with responsibilities, to make them children again and restarting the cycle of endless consumerism.

You're dam right I'm taking it there. Mental disorder my ass. It's all about money

They had a 1 year anniversary version of this on the anniversary of Trump winning the election.

Good lord no wonder this article has you so upset. You sound like you suffer from this addiction.

"PROFESSIONAL CAREER PLAYING VIDEO GAMES"

You understand that adults do not plan futures around going "pro" in video games, right? That's not normal. That's literally addiction. That's not that different from people literally moving to Colorado to smoke weed. Basing your life on playing video games is so unwise and ridiculous that I can't even fathom how someone older than me has this take on life. I mean, when I was like 12 I thought that was a legitimate direction in life. You literally have a marriage fantasy wrapped into this, too. Come on, bro. I don't know if it's unhealthy, but it definitely isn't realistic.

You are literally a GamerGated gamer, too, aren't you? This isn't why you are conservative isn't it? It definitely isn't your vast comprehension and respect of conservative government, but man you sure have a grasp on the things that upset GamerGate gamers. You are also apparently distrustful of modern medicine, too. That's all very interesting.

No wonder you didn't respond to my post here

I don't see how my political views are related to the topic, so why bring this in here?


Because GamerGate was co-oped by the ultra right-wing very transparently and ironically it turns out GamerGaters didn't give a shit about who they were sleeping with either.

Also your age makes me suspect that your grasp on politics is probably limited to what happened out of GamerGate and that scares the living hell out of me.

You weren't even alive when Columbine happened and back then I was afraid people would think I would shoot up a school if they found out I played Doom because the mainstream media, for whatever reason, reported that the shooters were bullied and used Doom to practice their massacre. Turned out, they were bullies and one of them just happened to like Doom.

So, what on earth do you consider being treated badly? Because some 20-something year old writes a blog about how gamers are misogynists or something? What about when some of the most powerful people in conservative media push propaganda on people your age and younger?

Personally? The right-wing becoming involved in an affair between gamers because some of those gamers believed in SJW ideas and shoving their shit politics in the minds of teenagers pisses me off a lot more than what some idiot who drinks pumpkin spiced anything thinks.

And if you think what is in the OP is an attack on you, you are looking in the wrong direction fella


Man, that was probably the last fucking take I'd ever get from you, dude.

Dude I played in tournaments. Take it from me, it's a hobby. It's not a career, dude.

The OP makes you feel like a victim and 10 sentences is a wall of text to you. This sure is the most delicate take I've read on this topic.
