    Okay, you want to recruit soldiers using a video game. First off, you have already done that, it's called America's Army, I have the fifth game for the original XBox. Second, you don't use a cartooney game where bullet drop isn't even a thing, you use ARMA, a game that is so realistic that there is even a sniper rifle that has incredibly short range, but is literally so silent that a few players several meters away won't even hear it. THAT is what you use to train your recruits. Only thing is, ARMA was made to keep people from being recruited, as the story modes often talk about the horrors of war, such as finding mass graves of civilians killed by their own government, and also because of the fact that it is so hard to see enemies that the game brings to light how much ammo is wasted by soldiers by making you experience what it is like to just shoot at trees while you are being shot at.

    Playing and socializing through computer games is an addiction, but watching TV like a zombie is not?!
    Watching TV is clearly worse.
    Computer games are one of the biggest enemies of TV shows. That's why they do these stories. They just want gamers to watch more TV and boost their ratings.
    Full disclosure: I've never played the game.

    This was a poorly researched piece on your part. Video game addiction is real and is affecting people worldwide. What happens though is that people who aren't experts in the field tend to either misunderstand or misrepresent how common addiction is. It only affects a very minor part of the people playing. Usually those who already have a disposition to become addicted in the first place. I have had to research this matter for work assignments quite recently, so it's still very fresh in my mind, and I can definitely tell Trevor's newsteam completely missed the mark on this. In regards to that heroin argument: Of course no actual scientist would ever say playing video games is as lethal as using heroin. Stop misrepresenting what was stated. In fact I might know which piece of research they were referring to. The point was that the pleasure players receive from video games is similar in its neural effects to heroin use. The consequences they were referring to are social, psychological, and physical. In regards to the last, of course they're not as drastic as with heroin use (i.e. Slowly killing you and your brain, risk of OD, etc.), but what they're referring to is that it becomes a physical dependency because your brain basically constantly craves the "feeling" from the video game and can't function normally without it, as in heroin addiction. The former two I mentioned go pretty hand-in-hand with drug addiction with the notable exception that you wouldn't normally run into/spend time with criminals as with heroin addiction for instance.
    There was more but doing this on my phone is a pain in the ass, but I think I made the point clear.
    I'll try to answer replies to this. And maybe I should even offer my services here because this was some Fox News level bullshit you just pulled. I won't ask for an arm and a leg, no worries.

    Addiction is transnosographic as it is related to alexithimy: that means it is a mental disorder which appears in other psychiatric disorders. More than that when you consider addictions the problem is not originated in the substance or social habit being abused excessively. The problem resides in the alexithimy which is a lack in the development of emotive intelligence resulting in low capacities in reading your own emotions, others emotions and in modulating them.
    The root of alexithimy is to be found in traumatic events usually lived during the latency (6 to 11 years of age). These traumatic events can be related to any important social circle the kid lives in; that can be: home, school, relatives' homes, sports team, boy scouts, chess team, etc, etc. These traumatic events cause the latency kid to alter his or her use of their developing modulation of emotions. What happens is that the emotion of vigilance takes over all other emotions. Being always vigilant brings people to search for habits or substances which can even shortly bring them out of or enforce that regular and constant excess of vigilance. That is why cocaine doesn't help alexithimical people while marijuana is often used a self-therapy by alexithimical people.
    That means Fortnite just as any other past-time which requires vigilance or any other substance which alters vigilance is the "perfect" kind of vicious circle for alexithimical people. That is why all forms of pathological dependency are linked to traumas blocking the correct use of emotive intelligence, which culminates in the modulation of emotions. As alexithimical people do modulate emotions, but only to convert them all in vigilance as an unconscious mechanism of self-defense.

    This kind of bothers me b/c of how addiction is defined. Isn't addiction when you do something repeatedly to the point where it is harmful and you have at least some difficulty stopping? Keep in mind that the "addictive personality" is a spectrum, some ppl are more susceptible to becoming addicted to shit than others. Playing video games can definitely be addictive, especially the ones that have "loot boxes" and other gambling shit built into them. What's really sad is the main reason ppl are addicted to them; google psychology today kids video game obsession isn't really about video games. In real life ppl are isolated, video games enable ppl to socialize AND actually have fun while real life is mundane and bleak. But when ppl live more in video games and care more about that life than real life, then yeah, that sounds unhealthy. The bit about the "summer camp" was particularly annoying b/c that's NOT going to help anyone, the kids are going to be really healthy while they're at the camp and then they're going to crash again when they go home, back to super stressful school and nothing fun to do except play video games (but at least they'll have learned how to cook a proper meal I guess).

      The argument isn't "is it addictive or not" the argument is "should addiction be called a disease" and the answer to that is no, it should not, b/c calling it a disease could abdicate the addict of personal responsibility. BUT ppl should still be able to receive help to deal w/ addiction, it's something that most ppl need help w/ and giving such help most benefits everyone.

    When the war on games became a thing. Some people can't handle losing. Some love winning games. Everything in moderation is what we should teach our kids.
    My son has like 20 games and he plays for 1 or 2 hours then stops and does other things. Limitations is what needs to be set. That in its self would kill the addiction. Video games have proven that they also cure bad moods or stress when taken lightly and just for a good time. The media would have you hear that though.

    Play ~2 Hours, rest ~30 mins, Play again. Get your Food and Toilet breaks planned and sleep ~8 hours. That is why I have been able too keep playing from age 7 all the way to my now 32 and I hope to do it past 100. (Now that my ~30 min break is over, GAME TIME)

    *Fun Fact: In America, Gaming Addiction In 2018 Is NOT A Mental Health Diagnosis.* Gaming addiction is NOT recognized by the APA in America. It cannot be billed to insurance in the USA. Still, I think the segment is interesting to know more on how people in the United Nations think about the problem of too much gaming.

    • Jon Krueger
      Jon Krueger 2 месяца назад

      ​+Lazer Tag From my experience working with people diagnosed with a drug addiction, I certainly think that problems can come from too much gaming. Someone playing a game too much can have a lot of the same negative symptoms as someone who has a drug addiction. Avoiding going to work = bad. Not controlling cravings = bad. Anxiety or withdrawal for simply not having something = bad. Avoiding spending time with friends and other people = bad.

    Ronny, shut up. That camp literally teaches life skills that massively improves quality of life, skills that many aren't learning because their lives have become too virtual. That is definitively rehabilitation. Maybe you're ripping on Fortnite being identified as some people's addiction because you're feeling attacked. But don't come at those trying to create a space for kids where they can form good life habits.

    Addiction is any activity that is used to avoid confronting a difficult emotion or situation. One difficult emotion I often feel is that I spent too much time that day watching RUclip videos, so I keep watching videos to avoid going back to my day. I imagine it might be the same for some people with Fortnite.
