WHO classifies ‘gaming disorder’ as an illness


World Health Organization now classifify me, and, and I’m sure many others, as having a ‘gaming disorder’.

TechRadar: World Health Organization officially classifies ‘gaming disorder’ as an illness

“impaired control over gaming […], increasing priority given to gaming to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences.”

Wait until the WHO look at mobile phone use 😁

I’m sure there will be regulations going forward that restrictions of game time will be built into new gaming systems. A bonus for those of us who still play on retro systems 🤣
