A group of international experts from Europe, North and South America, Asia, and Australasia collaborated to discuss and achieve consensus about how to assess internet gaming disorder as defined within DSM-5. A set of criteria was set to detect whether someone has a gaming disorder or problem gaming issue. The nine criteria are outlined in this document. If 4 or more of these criteria are met within a one year period, you can conclude that gaming is having a considerable negative impact on your life.
