ņģThe Oxford Internet Institute research focused on two games: Nintendo's Animal Crossing and EA's Plants vs Zombies.ņģIn an unusual step, the developers of the games shared anonymised data about how long each participant had played.


ņģThese logs were then linked to a survey in which the players answered questions about their well-being.

ņģA total of 3,274 gamers took part. All were over 18.ņģ"I don't think people plough a bunch of time into games with a social aspect unless they're happy about it," he said.

ņģ"It's like a digital water-cooler," he added, suggesting the titles both provide new ways to mingle with others online.ņģHowever, he said that those who had felt compelled to play - for example because they were seeking to avoid stress elsewhere in their lives - had reported being less content.

ņģThe professor has called on other games-makers to share similar data.ņģ"We need to study more games, and more players, over more time," he said.
