Journal of Communication, v46 n2 p19-32 Spr 1996
Documents current adolescent electronic game-playing habits, exploring associations among preference for violent games, frequency and location of play, and self-concept. Identifies marked gender differences in game-playing habits and in scores on a self-perception profile. Finds that for girls, more time playing video or computer games is associated with lower scores on six subscales, including self-esteem. (SR)
