It's worth pointing out that, at least for now, the recent classification of "gaming disorder" is just part of the first draft of the WHO's revision of its International Compendium of Diseases.
The last version of the ICD was completed in 1992, with the new guide due to be published in 2018.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - a separate compendium of strictly psychological disorders - does not now list a gaming disorder, calling it only a "condition for further study". "Our data show a clear and consistent pattern in which video game problems are associated with poorer health", the researchers found.
"It could lead to confused parents whose children are just enthusiastic gamers". Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft as members - argued that the classification "recklessly trivializes real mental health issues like depression and social anxiety disorder, which deserve treatment and the full attention of the medical community". The World Health Organization knows that common sense and objective research prove video games are not addictive. "We strongly encourage the World Health Organization to reverse direction on its proposed action". "I do notice behavior changes with them and I will immediately tell them to get off and kind of cold turkey them from the gaming system for a good week or month", Mattson said.
This is only a draft and is being adjusted regularly, and PC Gamer pointed out that a similar proposal was raised for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders a few years ago, but at the time there wasn't enough evidence for it to go through. The games industry recently faced criticism for its general approach to "loot boxes" as a reward for players, for example, and whether they constituted a form of gambling.
