Gaming Addiction has recently been listed as a mental health condition for the first time by the World Health Organisation (WHO), meaning gaming addiction is now officially classified as a mental disorder. Video game addiction presents as a distinct behavioural addiction characterised by excessive or compulsive use of computer games or video games that interferes with a person’s everyday life. Video game addiction may present itself as compulsive gaming, social isolation, mood swings, diminished imagination, and hyper-focus on in-game achievements, to the exclusion of other events in life. To address this important issue, we have created The Gaming Addiction Pack.
