    Quantify "Too Much Gaming" Por Favor


    I scanned for Alien DNA as I cruised in my Sub (marine) at 300 meters depth. Several patches of DNA showed up on my HUD and the closest was 1,254 meters away. 30 ° turn to port and I'm heading for my target.

    I'm at 25% of the amount of Alien DNA needed to make a new body for my "Resident Alien". When I had answered the Alien's distress call, I'd offered the Alien my PDA to transfer to but he had felt it "Too cramped" so here I am, a clinical case of multiple personalities, one being very un-human

    Then, I woke up...

    Is a sign of excessive gaming when you game in your dreams?



    Arrrrrrrgh! "To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time"


    Internet Gaming Disorder is a Condition for Further Study in the DSM-5 (APA 2013). This means that it is not an "official" disorder in the DSM , but one on which the American Psychiatric Association request additional research. Upon further research, the APA may or may not decide to make the disorder "official" in future editions of the DSM . From Psychology Today 1

    So, What does too much gaming look like?

    I would say to start off that what's excessive isn't the same for every one

    My present stage of life is retired. So I really can game all day if that's what I feel like.

    Others have different life situations and gaming all day means not feeding your family

    People also group themselves in tribes. The "Sports" enthusiasts will demean the "video gamers" because they are not participating in real events. Is the "Sports" enthusiast, beer in hand yelling at the TV set "participating" in a real event, or is his/her influence on the game's outcome nil because TV is one-way?

    Then there are groups of gamers. The PC crowd. Xboxers. People who do MMOs, people who like a good & bloody First Person Shooter

    So, I thought about all these things, and more but for brevity I'll just leave off now.

    "Why so serious?"


    So, what say we all?

    Following some of the shows on TV of the action or mystery genre one could get the idea that having empty containers next to the computer desk for bodily functions [avoid interruptions in the action] would be "too much".
