The Game Addiction Talk

The Game Addiction Talk

The Game Addiction Talk

No one sets out to be addicted when he/she first plays a game. Unknowingly over time, a bond is formed with the game which makes it hard for the gamer to pull away.

At the 72nd World Health Assembly, 194 members of the WHO unanimously agreed to adopt the 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11), which includes ‘gaming disorder’ as a recognised disease. The new classifications will come into effect on 1 January 2022. Below is WHO video on Gaming Disorder.

SOOS OIO Game Addiction Talk seeks to help youths, and even adults, understand some basic game design psychology that answers the question “WHY games can be addictive?” Some patients in the hospitals are given huge dosage of heroin for treatment but they never become drug addicts. Similarly, the game itself is not the only reason for addiction. Through understanding the “why”, the youths are better equipped to make wiser choices in games.

Through the story of Ruth Lim, our in-house “game addict”, we seek to help students to be more aware of their pre-disposition to game addiction. Ruth’s personal struggles and victories brings life to the information about game design & pre-disposition to addiction, making it more real and relatable to your students.

The objective of this talk is to help students understand their power of choice. They can be in control of games and their life when they understand games and themselves better.

Ruth + Dota2 + FIFA18

About the Speaker – Ruth Lim

Ruth Lim is a coach for DOTA 2 & FIFA 18, and the lead trainer for DOTA 2 at the Esports Academy. Her passion for gaming led her to obtain a Game Development Diploma in Game & Entertainment Technology and further obtained a Bachelors in Computer Science while sustaining a keen interest in gaming.

Game was a way of life for Ruth. She spent extensive long hours in a game, determined to reach the goals she set for herself. This determination has impact and effects on her life. Addicted to game but yet not an addict is a thin line of balance.
