According to the WHO

"Gaming disorder is defined in the draft 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) as a pattern of gaming behavior (“digital-gaming” or “video-gaming”) characterized by impaired control over gaming, increasing priority given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences"

Symptoms of Gaming disorder consist of

Spending a lot of time thinking about games

"Compulsively" playing games

Watching other people play them
To me this "Gaming disorder" is just another excuse to ignore other serious problems like climate change or poverty instead the massive cooperate fake news media outlets decide to target one of man's best forms of art since art next there's gonna be a breathing disorder or a tardiness disorder

"Oh my god, Dylan. Get off the Xbox! You've been on for 6 hours and I think you have the new gaming disorder!" exclaimed Mom.
