When folks lose their jobs or drop out because they play the game all day, it’s a problem. Link up with your friends and send out all kinds of good vibes while being comfortable AF. Take heart — there are professionals out there who understand the gaming perspective and are working to help normalize gaming as mainstream pastime it has actually become. The Street Fighter video game character costumes are easily identified. It is a simple suit with a few extra details to breathe life into the character behind it. Dressing up as controversial characters, using plastic garbage bags and drawing details on costumes with cheap magic markers are all fast ways to get onto a worst cosplayer list.

To them, it’s not something that is a legitimate topic, and it’s not a legitimate addiction. You’ve noted that there is a lot of controversy in the professional community about whether or not gaming addiction actually exists. For instance, in Research Design, I created a research study with fictional data, explored gaming addiction in my substance abuse class, and even applied theories of group counseling (e.g., Yalom) to guild dynamics.
