    Games, like most things, are defined by the user.
    If you have some type of mental impairment that results in unhealthy behavior, that's on you.

    It's kind of like a person who has severe shellfish allergies eating at Red Lobster. Regardless of whether they know about the issue, it's not the restaurant's fault if they order a crab cake and explode or however people allergies die.

    At worst it may serve as an enabler for a condition.

    For me since I'm badly disabled, Gaming is basically what gets me through a day because I really have nothing else to do but pass time. And time doing nothing usually leads to me feeling depressed.

    out of curiosity, what is the nature of your disability?

    don't have 2 share if u don't want to

    95% of teenagers have switched over to RAP/POP. If your one of the 10% that still listens to REAL MUSIC copy and paste this to your sig.

    Breathing is not a hobby but rather an illness?

    It is an illness. I remember having tummy aches when my parents bought me new games in middleschool. Couldn't go to school on those days I received games.
