Computer Game Playing in Early Adolescence.
Griffiths, Mark
Youth & Society, v29 n2 p223-37 Dec 1997
Surveyed 147 11-year-olds about their reasons for playing computer games. Most played for fun, for a challenge, and because their friends did. For most adolescents, computer game playing is a fairly absorbing and harmless activity, but for a few it poses problems when game playing consumes too much time. (SLD)
