Does playing games increase anxiety?

Recommended Posts

Video games seem to be blamed for all sorts of negative effects on mental health. Some studies indicate that gaming results in people becoming anxious, depressed, angry, or even violent. Excessive video gaming is found to be associated with positive emotions and social relationships while playing. However, problematic and excessive video gaming is also associated with maladaptive coping strategies, negative emotions and attitudes, low self-esteem, loneliness, and poor academic performance. Video games are not evil by nature. They do not necessarily cause anxiety or depression. However, video game addiction can certainly make these issues worse. In your thoughts about this, does playing games increase your anxiety in any chances?
