The American Medical Association warned the public yesterday about the potential dangers of video-game addiction, but rejected a call from a Maryland physicians group and other doctors to declare the condition a formal medical disorder. Instead, the national doctors' group urged more formal research into the impact of video game use and called for a review of the video game ratings system. "We would like to find out exactly what this is, what it does, its harms and even its benefits," said Dr. Martin Wasserman, executive director of MedChi, the Maryland State Medical Association.
