WHO quote: "Some gamers do experience serious
problems as a consequence of the time spent playing video
games.However, we claim that it is far from clear that these
problems can or should be attributed to a new disorder, and
the empirical basis for such a proposal suffers from several
fundamental issues. Thus, we believe that, at this point,
suggesting formal diagnoses and categories is premature and the proposal should be removed to avoid a waste of resources in research, health, and the public domain. Removing the proposal would also prevent significant violations of children’s rights to play and participate in digital environments, preserving their right to freedom of expression."
