AMA finally takes action and orders research into gaming addiction

The group said more research needs to be done on the "long-term beneficial and detrimental effects" of video games and the Internet. Oddly, they also called for a review of the video game ratings system, saying that they'd like to see a rating system in place that "better alerts parents to the content of the video game and recommended age of the player, so they can decide whether or not their child should be playing it."

The story is too old to be commented.
