Whether or not gaming causes addiction continues to be debated in the scholarly literature. The American Psychiatric Association has proposed "Internet gaming disorder," a non-substance addictive disorder, in order to encourage further research on the subject. We suggest that competitive gaming, better known as esports, might provide a unique platform on which to discuss the validity of the proposed disorder.
