Yes, "pathological gaming" literally means "sick gaming" which is something I've never seen anywhere. Various International governments wishing to control Internet content, and lawyers drooling over potential lawsuits, are the only sources for this "information." *cough* Interesting, don't you think, why there's no "pathological movie going," or no "pathological book reading" or even "pathological TV watching" to speak of--or if these things are spoken of at all, the word "pathological" simply doesn't appear? It's reserved only for computer gaming. "Pathological bowling"? Never heard of it...;)

I've still never heard of anyone bowling so long that they drop dead, but people have sat in one chair playing video games so long that they died. Actually died. Otherwise healthy young people incapable of turning off the game and dying.

I have no clue why so many here think this is trying to extend to the people here who game several hours a week, and not the people that have lost jobs, lost loved ones, and even lost their life, because they couldn't turn off a game.

Darwinism in full effect. Stop complaining.

It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)

Study suggests pathological gaming is a symptom of bigger problems -- rather than a unique mental disease

Which people have been saying on this site for a decade. On the other hand, pathological Blues posting is a unique mental disease.
