    Video game addiction - can it lead to other disorders?

    I don't know a whole lot about the concept of "video game addiction". I don't play them myself but do have a family member who got really sucked into them. I understand there is some controversy over whether it is a valid phenomenon. Regardless, I found a short article from PopSci suggesting that excessive use of video games may rewire the brain in a way that makes people more susceptible to other, more serious disorders.

    Excessive internet usage, social media compulsion, cellular phone addiction, etc.
