The World Health Organization made video game addiction an official mental health disorder. The Geneva-headquartered organization added "Gaming disorder" to the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems or "ICD-11," which goes into effect in January 2022.

The condition is included in the global medical guide within a section detailing disorders due to substance use or addictive behaviors, along with "Gambling disorder."

I've always been kind of a slacker, but lately I'm more successful. This may come down to the fact that the rest of the world plays video games... and I don't.

People come more in line with their genetic tendencies as they get older. My parents and all my older relatives are hard working, and eventually I started to move away from my culturally driven '80s slacker personality and become more like them.
