That's not what they're saying.

Gaming disorder as defined by the WHO is "characterized by impaired control over gaming, increasing priority given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences. For gaming disorder to be diagnosed, the behaviour pattern must be of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning and would normally have been evident for at least 12 months."

Nobody is saying that playing video games in your spare time is a disorder. What they're saying is that when it reaches the level of an addiction that severely and detrimentally impacts your ability to function, then it's a problem. And they're correct.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

No, playing games TOO MUCH is a disorder. There's a difference. And I think most reasonable people agree.

Exactly this.

A person who plays games for an hour each night after a long day of work/school/social activities does not have a disorder.

A person in their 40s with no job, no social life and lives in their moms basement playing games all day likely had a disorder.

Gaming addiction is very real, in fact here in the Netherlands it's one of the more prevalent addictions among young people nowadays.

I agree. There are some cases where it's just insane and there is clearly an issue.

Curious, do they say the same thing for TV, books, movies, or any other entertainment?
