  • There also are physical symptoms that may point to addiction:Carpal tunnel syndromeSleep disturbancesBackaches or neck achesHeadachesDry eyesFailure to eat regularly or neglecting personal hygiene
  • Video game addiction is not included as a diagnosis in either the DSM or the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems.However, some scholars suggest the effects (or symptoms) of video game overuse may be similar to those of other proposed psychological addictions. Video game overuse may be likecompulsive gambling, an impulse control disorder.According to Griffiths“all addictions (whether chemical or behavioural) are essentially about constant rewards and reinforcement”. Griffiths believed that addiction has six components: salience, mood modification, tolerance, withdrawal, conflict, and relapse. Some scholars suggest that psycho-social dependence, if it occurs, may revolve around the intermittent reinforcements in the game and the need to belong. . Some scholars claim that the social dependence that may arise from video games occurs online where players interact with others and the relationships “often become more important for gamers than real-life relationships” . However this is not a view which is generally accepted among all scholars.
  •  In higher levels of a game, players usually fail the first time around, but they keep on trying until they succeed and move on to the next level
  • Are video games violent: YesDo they cause violence in young children: No more than television or the moviesShould the rating system be changed: NoThe last word: Video games may or may not promote violence in teenagers or in young adults, but the fact is that there is not enough evidence to support it. Video games are forms of entertainment that children enjoy, and if for some reason parents have a problem with certain games, then its up to them to pay attention to what their child is doing, instead of it being the game industries fault for putting mature rated content into a mature rated game.
