Especially Boys-girls tendency to play digital or video games has increased greatly. It turns out that their parents are deeply concerned about this issue. Because they are not eating at the time of the game, they are not sleeping, their education is damaged, mind mood is getting worse. As a result, many times the experts have to take advice. Like addiction seen in alcohol or any other addiction, it is seen as an addiction in the internet game. After a lot of research and the opinion of various experts across the globe, the World Health Organization recently added gaming addiction to their 11th edition of the International Classification of Disorder, known as ICD.

According to the World Health Organization’s determined gaming disorder, it is said that if anyone cannot control the time of the play in the game of digital or video games and negligence of their daily activities can be seen.

It can be understood that the symptoms of drug addiction and game addiction symptoms are basically one and both of them have a great deal of influence. Studies on young Asian boys have been found to be a part of the brain of addicted people who are excited to add to drugs while playing games on the Internet, they are just as excited about those places. These nervous responses have a profound influence on the part of the brain that controls attention, feeling, and function.
