In recent days there have been some important news related to video game addiction. On the one hand, a study claimed to have found a cure for it, and some games like Fortnite have defended themselves from the accusation of causing addiction. Now it is the UKIE organization, British, that has spoken about it.
It has been done by Jo Twist, the main head of the Association for UK Interactive Entertainment, who believes that it is time to stop linking the Video games with addiction. ” People who know me know that I am very careful with words, both semantics and language are things that matter “, declare Twist herself.
That a game is good does not mean it is addictive & quot It bothers me a lot when I watch videogame analysis and I see a videogame branded to be addictive instead of saying that it is well designed, that it is good or that you should play it. That does not mean it is addictive, jo ** r, “commented vehemently, Twist. “We need to start being careful with language when we use those kinds of words because, unfortunately, there are people who are not linked to video games that have a wrong notion of all this. And I’m talking about politicians, journalists or people from the public sphere “.
Twist, in addition, ensures that video games still suffer from being a novel culture and that, therefore, they are still relatively poorly viewed from certain Population strata.
We recently told you that WHO considers video game addiction a disease.
