Jump Dash Roll

Jump Chat Roll is the comedy gaming podcast where Rob and Shaun take a weekly irreverent look at some of the bigger topics in gaming, waving their opinions about and hopefully entertaining you as much as they entertain themselves.

In the fourth episode of Jump Chat Roll, we take a look at video game addiction. Now that the World Health Organisation has classified "gaming disorder" as an official illness (with some medical professionals disagreeing with that label), we wanted to dig into some of the aspects of gaming addiction - including our own experiences. Could that time on Team Fortress have been spent in more fruitful ways? Is gamifying our work (as Amazon is doing) actually damaging the health of workers? And are Peggle and Candy Crush Saga really that different? (Spoiler: Yes, undeniably).

As always, there's feisty language, dark humour and maybe even some serious points about gaming. Maybe.
