I actually heard you laughing once, Cornflakes. It was in that video you posted of your ship exploding on a docking platform in SC.

I replayed it many times that day. Classic stuff and very funny! :D :angel:

Gaming addiction has been listed as a mental health condition for the first time by the World Health Organisation.

Do things often get removed and relisted?

Neat... but, I feel like there are a lot of things that should be considered a mental health condition far before gaming.

On this subject, Victor, I'm going to mention Stardew Valley. From a google search of "Stardew Valley helped me with depression":
How Stardew Valley Helped Me Cope with Depressive Episodes
Stardew Valley Has Really Helped with My Depression
One Day at a Time: How Stardew Valley Can Help Mental Health
Stardew Valley and Using Games as Therapy
How Stardew Valley Is Literally Curing My Depression


Different games have helped me cope with depression at times, too. Games can absolutely be a healing tool. The people that lumped them in as purely addictive are shortsighted and narrow-minded, I think. Yes, gaming can be a problem - but then, anything can be a problem. You could be "addicted" to woodworking to the point that you quit your job and your health starts failing. It could be drawing, or riding a motorcycle, or watching TV, or birdwatching. Why single out video games? Anyone that really put any effort into researching it would have found that games can actually help people. If someone is playing video games for hours and hours - maybe the issue isn't the video games at all, but they're coping with depression or anxiety. Trying to treat gaming as an addiction just means you're removing the thing that's helping them cope with the underlying problem. Instead, you should try to treat the problem at the source: the depression or anxiety behind it.

In brief, I'm almost disgusted by the WHO's decision. To me, it sounds like less of a medical thing and more of a political one.

In the 80s and 90s, TV and Horror movie VHS where the evil ones.

Before that it was Rock'n Roll.

Before that it was the Swing.
