If you want to play video games but suffer the consequences of severe OCD symptoms, no one can stop you. You are entitled to your opinion. But this is my advice to OCD sufferers based on my experience.

Hi, sorry if my post came off as rude. Personally, I don't believe it would be a good general rule for people with OCD to stay away from things they enjoy. I have OCD... and video games actually help me. They tend to make my compulsions more obvious... but when I'm wrapped up in a video game, or in the exhiliration of a roller coaster, obsessive thoughts are pushed out of my head. This is just me of course.
