The Big Tech Show: Is gaming addiction becoming a real problem?
This week, Adrian sits down with a specialist from St John Of Gods, Professor Colin O’Gara, who says he is seeing more and more people brought in for addiction to video games.
Adrian asks Prof O’Gara about the scale and depth of the problem, its effects and how to diagnose it.
