"Gaming Disorder" now classified by World Health Organization

As A Mental Health Condition Do you play video games excessively?
You might just have a mental health condition according to the World Health Organization.
In the 11th edition of its International Classification of Diseases, The WHO will label “gaming disorder” with an official diagnosis on Monday.
Even as some psychologists disagree that gaming disorder is worthy of inclusion in the ICD, the organization feels the classification will help health professionals better diagnose the problem, leading people to find treatment.
Gaming Disorder has three main symptoms: letting game play take precedence over other life activities, playing must be “persistent or recurrent”, and lastly it has to cause problems like disturbed sleep or diet issues.
Do you think you could have gaming disorder? What game are you currently playing?
