Gaming Disorder: GGT chats with Narz, Video Game + eSports Psychology + Data Analytics Expert



Qutee Discussion – “Video Game Addiction: Fact or Fiction?”

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently added a new “Gaming Disorder” diagnosis, described as a pathological addiction to video games. Breaking things down and offering an alternative perspective, is Psychology and Data Analytics expert in eSports and video games, as well as the founder of GirlGamerVogue.com, Narz.

In this exclusive podcast interview led by GGT Founder Adesina “Desi” Sanchez, Narz explains the psychology behind video game design, how it intersects with Positive Psychology, and offers advice to those who are dealing with an overuse of video games, as well as a less pathological view of why young people are so drawn to them.

    it's interesting because there are many games out there that alert players how long they've been playing and it's up to the player to take a break. perhaps addictive personalities can get addicted to anything, not just video games? great points all throughout!!! loved the interview 😀
