"The perennial questions of the harm that games may be causing us and our children are extremely troubling," writes John Walker for Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

"Every week seems to bring a new survey or study that demonstrates links between gaming and problematic behaviour, with renowned psychologists, sociologists and publicists explaining to us what it is we need to be scared of. Over the last fifteen years I have been studying this data and reading these papers, and I am now ready to publish my findings.
