Gaming mechanics = gambling

Today's session provided an opportunity for the British games industry in particular to address growing concerns around gaming addiction, with UKIE CEO Dr. Jo Twist saying she would like to see more academic research done into the issue.

:roll:

Yeah right Jo, whatever. I know Jo personally and I can see why she said it but...yeah...
