    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?

    Reading: You Just Don't Understand!: Women and Men in Conversations by Deborah Tannen (50%)

    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.
