To evaluate differences in prevalences between gambling disorder and Internet gaming disorder (those who endorsed five of nine indicators and identified gaming as a significant source of distress), we compared our data in studies 2 and 3 with samples of problem gamblers. There is evidence that the neural mechanisms underlying Internet Gaming Disorder (IGD) resemble those of drug addiction. The presence of distress for diagnosis may be key to accurately distinguishing individuals with pathological features from those with nonpathological features (6).

Importantly, all criteria were relevant to a potential diagnosis, with the least common still reported consistently across studies and all appearing to be psychometrically sound.

The American Psychiatric Association recently included Internet gaming disorder (IGD) as a potential diagnosis. Much in the same way a sports fan might feel distracted at work if his or her team reaches the finals, feeling this way may be typical among those for whom gaming is a favored hobby.
