Abstract (Summary)

This quantitative study investigates the relationship between video game usage, video game addiction, compulsive Internet use, and subjective well-being. The key variables were measured using three different scales: The Game Addiction Scale; the Compulsive Internet Use Scale; and the Flourishing scale. 121 participants over the age of 18 partook in the study. The empirical results demonstrate a statistically significant, negative correlation between addictive video game usage and well-being. Video game addiction and compulsive Internet use were both found to be negatively correlated with subjective well-being.
