Nine per cent of kids become gaming addicts - A two-year study of more than 3,000 school children in Singapore suggests that excessive gaming causes real social and educational problems for some children. Results from the study conducted by researchers from the Media Research Lab at Iowa State University show that around eight per cent of children can develop a gaming addiction. These kids often had pre-existing behavioural problems, but playing video games adds to their problems . According to the study, "Greater amounts of gaming, lower social competence, and greater impulsivity seemed to act as risk factors for becoming pathological gamers, whereas depression, anxiety, social phobias, and lower school performance seemed to act as outcomes of pathological gaming."
