Health professionals can now determine if someone's gaming has became a health condition. The 11th version of the ICD is due out in 2018, and experts have finally settled on a first draft.

Sufferers are said to be unable to control the onset, frequency, intensity, duration, termination, and context are their gaming habit and give increasing priority to playing games over other life interests and daily activities.

The lead director of the study, Dr. Andrew Przybylski, said that the study provided evidence of "the potential new problem of 'internet gaming disorder'".

But could a child get addicted to a video game? Women are prone to social media, texting, and online shopping.

Health care employees and doctors can now diagnose patients with the condition. Even games with violence may have some benefits.

For example, playing 3-D video games can boost memory.

In the US, 63 percent of households include at least one frequent gamer, according to 2016's Essential Facts about the Computer and Video Game Industry report.

World Health Organization spokesperson Tarik Jasarevic said that game disorder is not limited to time spent in front of screens. Numerous people who drink do not have an alcohol problem either.

On the positive side, research has shown that game playing can relieve stress, improve problem-solving abilities, and enhance traits like eye-hand coordination.

But problematic gaming may also serve as a dysfunctional coping mechanism for some, according to the Nottingham Trent researchers.

According to the World Health Organization draft, the classification applies if the symptoms listed manifest over a period of at least 12 months in order for a proper diagnosis assignment. Would you choose gaming over spending time with family and friends? The WHO did not specify how many hours classifies as "excessive", and there isn't yet a specified treatment.

The behavior is characterized by a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior. It is unclear if symptoms that involve problematic video gaming behavior should be reified as a new disorder, or are the expression of underlying mental conditions.

In the 2013 edition of the DSM-5, it was only noted that the internet gaming disorder was a condition for further study.

- A lot of people would say this was a long time coming. "Gaming, in general for me, it's something you have fun, you know, play all sorts of games like Pokémon".
