    Industry urged to offer addicted gamers support; UKIE says research is key.
    Counsellors are concerned by the rising number of those ‘addicted’ to video games.
    As computer addiction isn’t a recognised medical condition, some have called on the games industry to offer addicted players counselling and advice.
    “The games industry should research the addictive impact of games playing on the health and social welfare of players, while offering counselling support for those who are adversely affected,” Phillip Hodson from The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy told the BBC.
