Résumé
The proposed introduction of gaming disorder (GD) in the 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases
(ICD-11) developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) has led to a lively debate over the past year. Besides
the broad support for the decision in the academic press, a recent publication by van Rooij et al. (2018) repeated the
criticism raised against the inclusion of GD in ICD-11 by Aarseth et al. (2017). We argue that this group of
researchers fails to recognize the clinical and public health considerations, which support the WHO perspective. It is
important to recognize a range of biases that may influence this debate; in particular, the gaming industry may wish to
diminish its responsibility by claiming that GD is not a public health problem, a position which maybe supported by
arguments from scholars based in media psychology, computer games research, communication science, and related
disciplines. However, just as with any other disease or disorder in the ICD-11, the decision whether or not to include
GD is based on clinical evidence and public health needs. Therefore, we reiterate our conclusion that including GD
reflects the essence of the ICD and will facilitate treatment and prevention for those who need it.
