Literature Review on Internet Gaming Disorder: Definition, Epidemiology, Proposed Symptoms, Course and Treatments
|In recent years, video game use has become extremely popular. While most people use video games for entertainment, there has been increased concern about people developing Internet gaming disorder. Video game addiction appears in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) as a condition that is not yet classified but warrants additional research, while the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) lists video game addiction as gaming addiction. The main goal of this literature review is to examine the research on the epidemiology, etiology, proposed symptoms, and course of Internet gaming disorder in the USA and internationally. In addition, this literature review will explore the existing research pertaining to treatment of Internet gaming disorder. Finally, recommendations will be for future research in psychology, and for public policy.
