Video Games

But when the Brigham Young team surveyed more than 800 U.S. college students, the results linked these effects to extended game play:

    * Poor relationship quality with parents and friends
    * Poor academic performance
    * Greater risk of alcohol and drug use
    * Lower self-worth
    * Lower perceived social acceptance 

As you might expect, violent games increased the risks of these effects.
