    I say this because while I was on my way to work yesterday, I spotted something from USA Today that addresses it and its connection to mental health, which some who are in the actual field of mental health don't agree with video game addiction being classified as an actual mental illness by the World Health Organisation.

    I read something about that too because a friend sent it to me for a laugh before it got big. Although it *can* be a mental illness, categorizing all of us like that is not ideal.

    what needed to be done is to define what kind of game addiction is a mental illness, i am a gamer and i play a lot but i still have priorities higher than games i've been playing..

    but i have friends who is even crazier, playing games to the point it ruined his own life and that, i think this is an addiction.

    @Mist - my thoughts exactly. I was floored, and not in a good way, when I was looking at a few articles about the matter. Me personally, I play video games, but not as much as my older brother did before he moved to Minnesota. What I'll likely do when I get home from work is start a thread about the matter, my thoughts on what I found (which includes what you say because I fully agree) and a few links with info.

    I heard about this but haven't read much into it. I would think that this is specific and obviously not generalized. Seriously, there are more gamers now than ever before. I hope it's just talking about those serious cases where people are obsessed to the point of like not keeping good hygiene and all that.
