I feel like gaming addiction is definitely a real thing gamers dont give enough attention to. I mean in a sense gamers are worse than smokers, at least they know when they're addicted and that it is bad for them. Gaming isn't technically bad for you, but it is for addicted gamers.

That "Gaming Disorder" annoys me, it's people with addictions not games causing addictions. I do think there should be more research and help for people with addictive personalities but Gaming Disorder is just a scapegoat.

In physiologically speaking, a common conception is that "Can we define what is normal?" This can lead to idea of actually noone is normal, everybody somewhat ill and all we do is generalize. So making gaming priority to family and friends can be define as illness but there is actually nothing stopping to say that making family priority to gaming is a illness aswell. Or more realistically example could be putting friends over family etc. I guess all that draws the line is damage that station can cause to you and others around you.

Weirdest gaming story I heard this month was Crackdown 3 was actually going to be released this year. So does that mean most successful professionals are mentally ill as they put there work, career, training etc... before anything else? oooohhh W.H.O stop worrying about gamers and pay more attention to the impending alien zombie apocalypse .

Ok but the people who play sports and physically get hurt dont have a mental problem? but you lose some sleep playing games and suddenly you're brain dead? Interesting.
This is my weird gaming story last December. On dec 26 Tuesday I watched my friend who streams cod ww2, bcoz of it I decided to buy a fps game Destiny 2, later at night I watched another friend who streams Destiny 2, viewing the game before I buy and said I’ll buy this game tomorrow, the next day after I bought the game from the Game Center and turn on my ps4. I can’t believe my ps4 knew I’m buying the game, Destiny 2 appeared on my ps4 (haven’t opened the package yet) and recommend me to buy it.

Not sure if someone already posted this but the poor guy who got killed from two call of duty players over a $1.50 and the guy was killed and doesn't even play video games. He has two kids and a wife and they are alone now because of it. Sad that it adds to the negative pool of people saying video games are a bad thing

“Gaming disorder” if it exists I actually have it im addicted to video games I’d rather play games instead of talk to my family if i become homeless i want games instead of food I barely eat anyway lol
ArminVonLiberty (5 months ago)
"Gaming Disorder" sounds like gaming addiction to me. The WHO just want to add more so-called disorders to the endless list thereof.

"The two biggest movers were Overwatch and PUBG" I don't think either Overwatch and PUBG are going to be that great as esports. PUBG lacks a lot of competitiveness that comes from general esports, despite being quite fun to watch, and Overwatch lacks the spectator side of it because it is too chaotic for a first person shooter. In reality the biggest esport is still League of Legends by a mile. The CEO of the valiants that you mentioned wasn't allowed into the League of Legends franchising system because of the bookwork side of things. In other words, the economic side of things wasn't good enough. The minimum a player will get paid in this League is 75000 per year, even players in the substitute rosters. I know Gameranx doesn't often like to talk about MOBAs, but they are the biggest esports.

See, I don't see glitching and using methods that weren't intended as an official completion, those 52 seconds may be the fastest time someone can complete the level, but not properly, so to me it doesn't count, play the level as intended the fastest and that's what counts.

Weirdest gaming thing is that a guy got swatted and was killed by police. After getting in an argument with a team member after losing a match for $1.50.

The person who got swatted and killed was not related to the wager at all, he was a completely unrelated party.

The most weird gaming story I heard in this month is someone defending EA claiming that EA did nothing wrong.
Skep Kim (5 months ago)
Tell them to try and play those shitty freemium games on mobile without paying and see how much they enjoy the gameplay. They don't seem to grasp the insidiousness of a game being intentionally designed to frustrate you so much while playing you are compelled to spend in game currency just to make the pain stop.
brucenatelee (5 months ago)
Probably casuals who don't know the ins and outs of business and gaming culture. I think somebody reported that it was a LOT of people defending it on Twitter. Can't remember the video, but they had to be idiots to think this shit is okay.

Yo, Matt Furie was/is an independent comic artist. His artstyle and comics had nothing to do with meme culture. While to the delight of some readers it's content was based more in absurdity and stream of consciousness; it was never merely a collection of random meme images. The thing is some rando 4chan user that decided it was a beautiful day to meme and most likely brute forced the meme. At this point it was out of Furie's hands, but had not formed legal beef as it was just an image weirdos liked and maybe Adam sandler probably even owned a Pepe shirt. Unfortunately for Furie, the character Pepe (one of four in the comic Boy's Club) suddenly became an alt-right(racist) icon. Keep in mind Furie released it in 2006, over a decade ago. Furie's move was not only legally justifiable, but was also the correct moral course of action to take. Weird commentary on that one, gameranx.

Ashok Kage (5 months ago)
It seems like WHO has got some mental disorder Seriously how can classify playing games as mental disorder because of few gamers who prioritise games over anything Then WHO should also classify watching tv as mental disorder bcoz many people are watching tv for hours instead of doing something else
iLuvcheat (5 months ago)
Why does gameranx never talk about league of legends when talking about esport ? LoL is the BIGGEST esport by far, followed by cs:go and dota2 which are significantly behind in viewership. Overwatch and pubg are not even in the top 3 yet they keep mentionning it ... Sponsor $$$ ?

I think you should do a video on (internet) gaming disorder. I love playing games and do so more than socially acceptable, (which is probably the same for most of this gaming community). I've studied a *bit* of research on internet gaming disorder as it was called (and have a planned psychology research project topic on it), and I don't think it should be discounted/ignored. Certainly not every gamer, or even majority of dedicated gamers have it and neither *should* it be generalised. Nor the criteria "specific" enough for those who do suffer. TBH look at the criteria for depression and anxiety. They are so vague that at a glance they can match most, which is why professionals and not the internet is meant to diagnose these situations. It frustrates me that saying "I'm depressed/suicidal" is such a normal thing to say for those who aren't. Normally the defining point is that the individual is *distressed* about their situation... If they aren't concerned, it *isn't* a problem for them. Gaming has amazing helpful benefits for some individuals and I celebrate all of these victories, it's really exciting that something I love can help people. I also know of some who will spend thousands of dollars, lose relationships, jobs, education etc because they *can't* control the reinforcement games give. Think about it: games are designed to give satisfying rewards to players to make them feel good. It's the same with gambling, drinking, drugs etc. They are shown to hijack the reward system of the brain, and can even make other positive experiences "less" rewarding. I love watching your videos. But I think ignoring a serious/ridiculing a topic like this isn't good, same as if I saw a video making fun of depression.
Wolfestar777 (5 months ago)
I'll elaborate/reinforce what I'm trying to say. Why gaming addiction stands out from "golf", "reality TV" etc addictions is because games are * designed* to make you feel good. There's many arguments in the psychology field about if it's a true disorder, but my view is this: if alcohol, drugs and gambling are addictions because they have a physical effect on the body to increase cravings to make you stop having the healthy life an individual desires then gaming CAN also be applicable. Yes, perhaps these individuals are already "weak" from their lack of discipline, and have other symptoms which make them prone to this disorder, but so do most mental/mood disorder. I.e. more stressed = higher chance of dementia, alcoholic parents= higher chance of drinking alcohol. Do these disorders get ignored/laughed at because they have other diagnoses? Do you say "drug addiction doesn't exist, because they got bullied in school and it's only a coping strategy."? You could deny that gaming disorder should just be classified as "just another addiction", but sometimes it's important to identify the key element that causes the individual to a self identified low quality of life. So yes, I think it would be really good for a gaming channel to acknowledge that for some, this disorder exists. But I also think that it should be strongly reinforced that it *isn't* applicable to everyone. Does everyone who drinks alcohol an alcoholic? No way. Is someone who purchases/consumes alcohol that causes serious damage to their own economic, social and health wellbeing, and cannot stop, an alcoholic? Most likely. Is a gamer who has the same lifestyle, treating gaming above other life choices in a serious situation *and they can't stop*? So please do a video. Acknowledge it. And please, put on a positive spin... To love games, but to enjoy other things in life too, like relationships food, other hobbies. Because for the individuals who do have gaming disorder... They can't.
