Description

In January of this year, it became official:   the World Health Organization officially approved classifying video game addiction, or gaming disorder, as a disease. The unanimous vote means that gaming disorder will officially be added with the revisions to the International Classification of Diseases, commonly known as the ICD.

In today's Kingdom Culture Conversation, we talk with Ethan Burson, a middle school Bible teacher at Northwest Christian School.  Ethan is also the coach of the Northwest Christian High School eSports team.  As part of the the Arizona Interscholastic Association, Northwest Christian's eSports team competes against other high school throughout the state within games like Super Smash Bros., Rocket League, Overwatch, and others.

In an important Kingdom Conversation, we ask, "Is video game addiction a legitimate issue?"  How do we know if this addiction is in our homes?

"Kingdom Culture Conversations" is a podcast created through Frameworks, a Biblical worldview initiative of Northwest Christian School.
