Gaming disorder to be named mental condition
« on: December 27, 2017, 05:36:19 PM »
A video gaming disorder is going to be named a mental condition for the first time, according to New Scientist.

The World Health Organization is classifying gaming disorder as a mental condition, according to the report. WHO will make the change in 2018, and language has not been finalized.

The disorder is defined in draft form as a condition if someone gives increasing priority to gaming "to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests," according to New Scientist.

"Health professionals need to recognize that gaming disorder may have serious health consequences," Vladimir Poznyak, a member of the WHO’s Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse said according to The Independent. “Most people who play video games don’t have a disorder, just like most people who drink alcohol don’t have a disorder either. However, in certain circumstances overuse can lead to adverse effects.”

it may be different, but at some point i experienced difficulty at separating real world from game world.

i was hooked on playing Yuri's Revenge back then. so hooked i finished the campaigns in just 2 days. when i went out with my friend, wala akong ibang binanggit kung hindi yung pag associate nung mga game scenes, items at characters sa bawat makita ko. told my friend how awesome it would be kung may mind control tower sa gitna ng angono at andun ako nagcocontrol sa mga tao. tapos bukambibig ko na sa tingin ko may point si Yuri for taking over dahil may sense naman pinag lalaban nya. i would even engage other players in a debate kung ano mas powerful weapon kung pagtatapat tapatin. i snapped out of it after a week. i think i was mind controlled by EA lolz
I turn myself into a monster to fight against the monsters of the world.
