I get addicted to games, I don't get addicted to gambling.

Both activities have the POTENTIAL to rewire the reward circuitry to create 'problem behaviours'.

If gaming were addictive, would that necessarily be a bad thing? The weekend before last I read a book, cover to cover, stopping for the inconveniences of eating, sleeping, toilet, and essential family interactions (I have a wife and child), and no-one cared at all. If I'd spent the same period of time gaming I'd still be hearing about it. I appreciate that addiction is, generally, not good, but I struggle to see how being addicted to gaming would be any worse than partaking of any other cultural text in an equally intense way. I suspect that the assertion that gaming addiction is bad, is based mostly on the idea that video games are inherently bad.

People - mostly men - get enough stick for playing video games as it is. Labelling it as any sort of 'disorder' is complete bullshit and will just make men more henpecked. I don't have that problem thankfully, but plenty of men are afraid to engage in their hobbies as much as they would really like to, and are made to feel guilty when they do
