Çok oyunculu çevrimiçi video oyunu oynayan bireylerde video oyunu bağımlılığı ve saldırganlık

Amaç: Bu çalışmanın temel amacı, şiddet içerikli çok oyunculu çevrimiçi video oyunu oynayan bireylerin saldırganlık düzeyleri ile çevrimiçi video oyunu bağımlılığı düzeyleri arasındaki ilişkiyi ele almaktır. Yöntem: Araştırmanın örneklemini yaşları 18-40 arasında olan, bir yıldan uzun süredir çok oyunculu çevrimiçi video oyunu oynayan 205 kişi oluşturmuştur. Veriler Buss-Perry Saldırganlık Ölçeğinin Türkçe uyarlaması ve İnternet Bağımlılık Ölçeği ile toplanmış, korelasyon, t-testi ve regresyon analizleriyle çözümlenmiştir. Bulgular: Analizler sonucunda, katılımcıların saldırganlık puanlarıyla çevrimiçi video oyunu bağımlılığı puanları arasında yüksek düzeyde anlamlı bir ilişki olduğu bulgusuna ulaşılmıştır. Erkeklerin fiziksel saldırganlık puanlarının kadınların puanlarından anlamlı düzeyde yüksek olduğu, ancak bağımlılık puanları açısından anlamlı bir cinsiyet farklılığı bulunmadığı görülmüştür. Yaşla bağımlılık ve saldırganlık düzeyleri arasında ters yönde anlamlı ilişkiler olduğu ortaya konmuştur. Ayrıca regresyon analizi sonucunda bağımlılık alt ölçeklerinden sosyal izolasyon ve kontrol güçlüğünün saldırganlık puanlarını yordadığı sonucuna ulaşılmıştır. Sonuç: Bu araştırmada çevrimiçi video oyunu bağımlılığı ile saldırganlık ilişkisi alt boyutları çerçevesinde irdelenmiştir

Correlation, t-test and stepwise regression analyses conducted to analyze the data. Results:Analysis indi-cated that there was a significantly high correlation between agression scores and video game addiction scores. Males have significantly higher psysical aggression scores than females. Age was negatively correlated with total aggression scores and all the subscale scores of Buss-Perry Agression Questionnaire (psyhical aggression, anger, verbal aggression and hostility). There was a negative correlation between age and video game addiction scores. Two subscales (isolation, loss of control) of the addiction scale predicted agression scores.

On the other hand, age was negatively correlated with aggression and video game addiction scores of the participants.
