Do You Think Video Game Addiction is a Mental Disorder?

I don't really think it is. We play video games because they are fun, we are addicted because we are immersed and it's most likely VERY fun. Do You Think Video Game Addiction is a Mental Disorder??

  • no and you will overcome it - one day - far from now. I love gaming but since a while I just can't enjoy it anymore. Dont know why. I want to game when I can't but if i find the time I am bored after 5 minutes

  • Yes, I have a floor association when I would just be all over the floor most times of the day, it's very serious, also no one should ever sit and hold a controller like that ^

  • It can be if you end up devoting all your time to it unhealthily. 'It's fun' isn't an excuse when your GPA is sliding.

  • I felt addiction to video games but I think it was fueled by depression. I'd just turn my Xbox and avoid it as long as I could but I'd play every day even though I didn't want to really it was boring and I kept doing it. It's like I didn't know what else I could do to pass time. Very weird but I sold my Xbox to stop it

  • No we play games because we like actions and trying differnt stuff.
    Games satisfiy a need that has not been met yet same happens with other addictions (internet, games, smoking, drinking, eating, watching Tv or youtube)

  • Anything can be addictive. Just look at the people that died from playing videogames for three or more days straight without going to the bathroom or eating.
