Man, they lost me to video games in 1977.

Haha, I was a poor growing up. Well I guess I still am, but a little less so, plus the relative cost of keeping up with gaming has gone down.

So I didn't get a gaming console until 1987, and I don't think I had a real PC until 1990. My dad is the one who got me into computers. I've been glued to a computer screen since my old 386SX we picked up in around 1990.

Just about 30 years of gaming! If I have the disorder, it's a chronic and severe case!

Will they add Fox News watching as a mental health condition?

It's under Intellectual Disability. That's been a bit controversial since unlike the other conditions in that section it appears to be a self inflicted choice.

Seems unnecessary to have it's own disorder. It should just be labeled a process addiction and then given a specifier.

That article on "gaming disorder" seems to be a thrown-together piece of sensationalism. Among other things it's referencing statements from a guy who's no longer practicing and served time for sexual abuse of his clients. And references his Dutch "addiction center" that's been bankrupt for almost 6 years.
