<p style="text-align: justify;">Videogames have become one of the most prevalent cultural forms around the world. While their role in art, pedagogy, and everyday life keeps growing, the health debates on videogame play—gaming—culminated in 2022 with the World Health Organization’s historical inclusion of “gaming disorder” in the International Classification of Diseases. This made gaming, next to gambling, the first and only type of behavior with a diagnostic category of addictive use. The above echoes a greater conflict between culture and human development: how can science address potential problems in intensive technology use, while intensive use is also globally integrated into healthy everyday living? To build a foundation for answering this question, this longitudinal multisite registered report constructs a taxonomy of intensive gaming by three levels: health, design interaction, and phenomenology of play. Based on rich mixed qualitative data (clinical and phenomenological interviews, diary-like entries, gaming logs) generated over three years with intensively gaming participants in Finland, Slovakia, and South Korea (total N=210–300), the study will produce a basis for a taxonomic system that helps distinguishing diverse life scenarios where gaming plays a significant role. As separate programmatic components, the study will additionally yield independent registered case reports based on the outlined methodological framework.&nbsp;</p>
