    In a draft of the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases “gaming disorder” is included in a list of mental health conditions. The World Health Organization (WHO) says this disorder is a “persistent behavior of sufficient severity to impact education, social, and other areas of functioning. To receive this diagnosis video game playing must be “normally evident over at least 12 months.” Are you addicted to Video Games? Do you think this should be considered a mental health disorder?
