Sounds like a typical 17 year old to me. Video games are very stimulating, almost addicting…especially for people with ADHD. He gets side tracked because even the smallest tasks are mentally fatiguing, so he’s constantly switching from one chore to another, which ends up making no progress.

Buy him a pair of headphones and load his phone up with music. When you ask him to do a chore, have him put those on.
