Video Game Addiction Canadian Class Action


CONSUMER LAW GROUP is investigating a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Activision Blizzard Inc., Infinity Ward, Inc., Treyarch Corp., Sledgehammer Games, Inc., Microsoft Corporation, Epic Games Inc., EA Digital Illusions CE AB d/b/a Dice, Electronic Arts, Inc., Ubisoft Divertissements, Inc. d/b/a Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft Entertainment, Nintendo of America, Inc., BlueStacks by Now.GG, Inc. d/b/a BlueStacks, Mojang Studios, MSI Computer Corporation, Raven Software Corporation, Roblox Corporation, Rockstar Games, Inc., Rockstar North Limited, Sony Interactive Entertainment, LLC., Sledgehammer Games, Inc., Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., Treyarch Corporation, and Google LLC for manufacturing, publishing, marketing and selling video games, platforms, hardware and other gaming products developed and designed with the specific purpose of causing psychologically harmful video game addiction in players and users. The listed corporate entities have deliberately continued to conceal the addictive nature of their video game products, as well as the clearly documented associated harms to players’ and users’ mental health, social relations, educational outcomes, and finances.

Video game addiction is a scientifically documented mental health condition characterized by players’ and users’ significantly reduced control over game playing and an overwhelming prioritization of gaming over other activities. Addicted video game players and users experience significant mental health issues including cognitive decline, aggressive behaviour, loss of social function, stress, sleeping disorders, loss of impulse control, depression, verbal memory deficiency, and the inability to function in school and other social settings. In 2008, the United States Federal Communications Commission identified videogame addiction as one of the main causes of students dropping out of American universities.

The proposed class action defendants have long been aware of the addictive and debilitating consequences of video game addiction and work with behavioural scientists, neuroscientists and other medical professionals to develop the predatory and addictive nature of their video games to maximize their profits. This includes tracking users’ gaming patterns in real-time and developing schemes and methods designed to increase the length and frequency of gameplay. These methods and schemes have been recognized as leading to irreversible brain damage, social impairment and mental and cognitive decline.

Consumer Law Group believes action must be taken for the millions of people suffering from video game addiction and who the proposed class action defendants have and continue to intentionally target with predatory video games they know are responsible for causing significant and irremediable harms and a mental health epidemic among minor and young adults and neurodivergent players.

Consumer Law Group seeks compensatory damages for the psychological, physical and financial harm incurred by persons who purchased and/or played or otherwise used video games, platforms or hardware in which the proposed defendants are involved, as well as punitive damages and all other relief that consumers are entitled to under the law.

If you or someone you know has purchased, played or otherwise used a video game in which any of the proposed defendants have been involved in designing, developing, manufacturing, publishing, marketing or selling and you wish to obtain more information on potential compensation, or to be kept advised of the status of the Video Game Class Action litigation or any resulting compensation resulting from the Class Action Lawsuit in Canada or Quebec, please provide your contact information to our law firm using the below form.
