Participate to Help Gaming Research

Last week, I participated in an interesting discussion about gaming addiction hosted by Truthloader and was accompanied by well-known industry names like YouTuber Jessie Cox and former Xbox Live editor Dan Maher, now the co-founder of Explosive Alan. Also in the discussion was Emily Collins, a researcher at University College London. I reached out to Emily after the discussion to ask about any studies she was conducting video gaming research involving addiction as I had a personal interest in the topic. While not running any studies on compulsion/addiction at the time, she did point me towards her current project studying whether video games can be used to help people recover from work and to stop work stresses from affecting their home-life, as well as the effects of online versus offline social support. Follow the article for the link to participate! (Culture, Industry)
