The concept of ‘gaming addiction’ has generated significant debate for many years. Among other concerns, opposing views have often cited the lack of consistency and standardization in the evidence base. With the recent inclusion of ‘6C51 Gaming disorder’ and ‘QE22 Hazardous Gaming’ in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), the field has formal classifications that appear likely to propel the study of problem gaming forward. This talk will consider some of the important challenges and future directions of the gaming disorder field. Which areas of research are most needed to strengthen the evidence base for the condition, as we look ahead to the DSM-6? What technological trends and emerging gaming developments might affect the study of gaming disorder? What does the field need now?
