If your parents were telling you, to stop playing video games too much they just might be right. WHO (World Health Organisation) declared addiction to video games as a serious mental disorder. The organization in it’s latest version of  International Classification of Diseases (ICD) has listed gaming addiction in it.

Don’t just throw away your laptops yet. According to WHO, a person has to be observed for a period of 12 months before an official diagnosis to be considered. Mental Health experts have been talking about this for years now, but now is the first time, that it is officially claimed by the authorities.  We just hope that at least now people start taking it seriously.
