"Gaming Disorder" is all set to be classified as a mental health condition in World Health Organization's global list of illnesses for the first time next year, according to the Independent.
The description of the condition continues: "The behaviour pattern is of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning".
