Playing Video Games: unravelling some common myths

The Interactive and Gaming Network (IGEA) have once again released a report of their research findings on how, why and by whom, video games are played in Australia. Undertaken in conjunction with Bond University and comprising a study of over 3000 individuals, it is important work to help us break down some of the pre existing beliefs and common myths and misconceptions about game playing, whilst also looking at how we can harness the power of games for positive outcomes.
