Teen videogame addiction linked to hostility towards school – report – The Irish Times

A new study from the CEU Cardenal Herrera University in Spain has found that 11.9 per cent of teenagers (from a group of 64) are “addicted” to videogames in that their use of such games is classified as problematic. Furthermore, this problematic use seems to go hand in hand with negative attitudes towards teachers and issues with adapting to a school environment.

Unlike previous studies on the effects of videogames, the authors said that over issues such as depression, low self-esteem and anxiety, these negative attitudes towards school are what stood out.
