Video Gaming addiction - buzzword, excuse for 400+ hours on Skyrim, mere symptom of depression or genuine psychological disorder? What even is there to become addicted to in gaming? Are there people more at risk than others and if yes, who? In what kind of ways are games engineered to make us become addicted? Where is the limit between normal gaming and a disorder? And if you are addicted, what helps?

This talk aims to explore these questions and more, time for questions will be included as well!
