Your answer
Thank You!
In the first 9 questions, you were asked to say YES or NO.
1-2 YES's only shows a mild negative impact of gaming on your life.
3-5 YES's shows a moderate negative impact.
6-9 YES's shows a severe impact.

If your answers show a moderate or severe impact, it's probably worth at least having a chat about the gaming. However, nobody should only be blaming just the games themselves. There is much more to that story.

The rest of the questions cover things like time displacement and self regulation. The average number of gaming hours for 12 -25 year olds is around 18 hours a week. Most concerns in this area are about the time spent gaming displacing other healthy hobbies or important activities.
