Relationship between Developmental Stages and Video Game Uses and Gratifications, Game Preference and Amount of Time spent in Play
Unformatted Document Text:  Video game U&G 9 H3: There will be differences between age groups in the reasons why video games are used. Furthermore, we ask the question: RQ 1: What are the uses and gratifications that predict patterns of heavy video game use among the three age groups? Method Survey data were collected from three age groups (preadolescent, adolescent and young adult) in order to represent the three stages of adolescent cognitive and social development. Sample Survey data were collected for the young adult group from two Midwest universities. Only fully completed surveys were included, resulting in a total of 550 usable cases. The mean age was 19.68 years old (range = 18 to 23). Gender distribution of respondents was 58.4% female (n = 321) and 41.6% male (n = 229). Most of the respondents were Freshmen (43%) and Sophomores (26%), while the fewest were Juniors (19%) and Seniors (12%). Survey data were collected from the second age groups (adolescent) from a Midwest middle school. Only fully completed surveys were included, resulting in a total of 227 usable cases. The mean age was 13.84 years old (range = 13 to 16). Gender distribution of respondents was 55.1% female (n = 125) and 44.9% male (n = 102). Survey data were collected from the third age group (preadolescent) from a Midwest elementary school. Only fully completed surveys were included, resulting in a total of 141 usable cases. The mean age was between 8 and 9 years. Gender distribution of respondents was 45.8% female (n = 70) and 46.4% male (n = 71), with 10% not responding. Procedure

used.
Furthermore, we ask the question:
RQ 1: What are the uses and gratifications that predict patterns of heavy video game use
among the three age groups?
Method
Survey data were collected from three age groups (preadolescent, adolescent and young
adult) in order to represent the three stages of adolescent cognitive and social development.
Sample
Survey data were collected for the young adult group from two Midwest universities.
Only fully completed surveys were included, resulting in a total of 550 usable cases. The mean
age was 19.68 years old (range = 18 to 23). Gender distribution of respondents was 58.4%
female (n = 321) and 41.6% male (n = 229). Most of the respondents were Freshmen (43%) and
Sophomores (26%), while the fewest were Juniors (19%) and Seniors (12%). Survey data were
collected from the second age groups (adolescent) from a Midwest middle school. Only fully
completed surveys were included, resulting in a total of 227 usable cases. The mean age was
13.84 years old (range = 13 to 16). Gender distribution of respondents was 55.1% female (n =
125) and 44.9% male (n = 102). Survey data were collected from the third age group
(preadolescent) from a Midwest elementary school. Only fully completed surveys were included,
resulting in a total of 141 usable cases. The mean age was between 8 and 9 years. Gender
distribution of respondents was 45.8% female (n = 70) and 46.4% male (n = 71), with 10% not
responding.
