The World Health Organization is recognizing gaming as a mental health disorder that can lead to problems down the road as adults.
According to the World Health Organization, the gaming disorder is diagnosed when video or digital game playing on or offline begins to impact everyday life.
In that, internet gaming disorder is listed as a "condition for further study", meaning it is not officially recognised. By contrast, the World Health Organization version is built around whether gaming interferes with real life activities - for example, if your gaming means you're not doing homework or brushing your teeth - and so it is "perhaps a little bit better", said Ferguson. Chris Ferguson, a professor of psychology at Stetson University in Florida whose research interests include video games and other media violence effects, described the ICD as "the book of real diseases that you can get insurance payments for". Some of the criticisms that they give include that the description "leans too heavily on substance use and gambling criteria", "the low quality of the research base" and the lack of consensus about the symptoms of "problematic gaming".
