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 you are moderate or severe, it's probably worth at least having a chat about your gaming. Nobody should be telling you that the games themselves are bad though. We both know most games are awesome.

The average number of hours playing games from 12-25 years old is just over 18 hours a week.
If you are interested in improving your skills AND your fun levels but keeping closer to the average number of hours, Check out the Intelligent Gaming Series found here:
