What is ‘Video Game Addiction’?
Video game addiction or video game overuse is a form of psychological disorder which consists of obsessive use of the computer and video games. There is no diagnosis about video game addiction in the current medical or psychological literature. However, these symptoms are very much alike to other suggested psychological disorders. Video game addiction is said to be an impulse control disorder. [Brown, Gerald L.]
