Gaming disorder is one example of addictive behavior.

Deaths Occurred Due To Gaming Addiction: Here's Why You Should Control Your Gaming Time

Gamers are sometimes regarded as leading a sedentary, unhealthy lifestyle. Video games are frequently played for long periods of time while seated on a couch. With the PlayStation Move, Xbox 360 Kinect, and Nintendo’s Wii, companies aimed to get gamers to be more active. These games compelled us to get up and dance or provided us with workout opportunities. Virtual Reality headsets have become increasingly important in immersing gamers in new worlds. Even so, these new devices keep us looking at a screen for hours, if not days, in some cases.

Adult gamers with real-life responsibilities frequently seek solace from their controller or keyboard and mouse. For the most part, it entails a few hours of rest before returning to normal life. Some parents take their gaming too seriously, to the point where they neglect their children or, in the worst-case scenario, kill them because they got in the way of an intense multiplayer match. Some people are willing to steal or rob relatives and strangers in order to play a game. Video game addiction is sometimes dismissed as a joke, but it can have serious implications, including incarceration or jail time. Gaming can be a safe pastime, but it’s crucial to understand your limitations. Sitting in one spot for an extended period of time, for whatever cause, is bad for your health.

Most lucky players leave with a headache or sleep deprivation after hours of gaming. Others are not so fortunate, and they become so ill that they must be hospitalized or die.

According to studies, gaming disorder affects just a small percentage of those who engage in digital or video gaming. People who engage in gaming, on the other hand, should be aware of how much time they spend on it, especially if it is to the exclusion of other daily activities, as well as any changes in their physical or psychological health or social functioning that could be ascribed to their gaming pattern.
