The Hidden Dangers of Computer and Video Gaming IT Technology : Every medal has two sides
Mom... Dear … Just a few minutes: Im almost done with this level. Parents have all heard it, when a child is pleading to get just a little more time to play.
Video game addiction Video game addiction, or more broadly video game overuse, is excessive or compulsive use of computer and video games that interferes with daily life. Instances have been reported in which users play compulsively, isolating themselves from family and friends or from other forms of social contact, and focus almost entirely on in-game achievements rather than broader life events
There is no formal diagnosis of video game addiction in current medical or psychological literature. Inclusion of it as a psychological disorder has been proposed and rejected for the next version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
The fact that a video game addiction has no formal diagnosis not solve a problem.
What we as a doctors must do? First: We ought to describe a possible symptoms. These are here: Excessive use of video games may have some or all of the symptoms of drug addiction or other proposed psychological addictions. Some players become more concerned with their interactions in the game than in their broader lives. Players may play many hours per day, having late baths and regarding personal hygiene as a waste of time, gain or lose significant weight due to playing, disrupt sleep patterns to play and suffer sleep deprivation as an effect, play at work, standing in the middle of nowhere looking into space for a considerable amount of time, avoiding phone calls from friends and/or lying about play time

Doctor for gamer ( joke ) A gamer goes to his physician and is shocked to find that he has been replaced by a super-computer.
Gamers! You are isolating themselves from life. You need for help!
