“Just let me get finish this one level and then I am done”- this is pretty much what every gamer has said when asked to stop after playing for hours. Gaming has been a sport that your parents would once call pointless and a waste of brain activity but with paid streaming sites such as Twitch and eSports the gaming lifestyle is turning into profit but at whose expense?
We know the saying too much of anything isn’t good for you and that applies to gamers who spend hours in on video games. According to the Hypebeast.com, the description for video game addiction is labeled as ICD (International Classification of Diseases) “a pattern of gaming behavior (“digital-gaming” or “video-gaming”) characterized by impaired control over gaming, increasing priority given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences.”
It has also been shared that if the gamer has addiction symptoms for over a year then they would be diagnosed.
