How Video Games can be a double-edged sword in our mental health struggles.

Mental Health and Gaming

More Than a Game

Esports have oftentimes been mocked by traditional sports journalists like Colin Cowherd for being childish and silly. Not real sports. After all, where’s the athleticism? Where’s the jaw-dropping effort? Where’s all the pressure?

Burning Away

This summer has Counter-Strike powerhouse Astralis make the unprecedented move to sign two additional players to their roster. At first, thought to be a power move to weaken other rising Danish squads, rumours soon swirled around that two of their players, In-game leader Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander and Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth were taking a step back from the game.

Changes Are Needed

Esports are still new, and we’re still in the growing pains period of a rapidly growing, competitive industry. Legislation and solutions are still lagging behind that growth, which is why changes are needed. Collective bargaining, extending player rights, and protecting them from burnout.
