RECENT FORTNITE SUICIDE

I came across this heartbreaking video of a father attributing this young son's suicide to the COVID19 Lockdown requirements. I'm having a very hard time not believing that his death was actually caused by an undiagnosed gaming addiction. He hung himself right after accidentally breaking his monitor and showed no signs of depression otherwise.

Please share your thoughts. Why arent the gaming companies ever face any consequences. How can I get actively involved in fighting for social justice against gaming?

Hard to know if it is

Hard to know if it is addiction per se, but gaming can cerainly make kids moody and also less resilient to real life, as it stops emotional development.
