Abstract
Video igre postale su dio naše svakodnevice. Milijuni igrača igraju video igre na računalima, konzolama i mobitelima, a industrija video igara razvija nove realnije igre uz pomoć sve naprednije tehnologije. Ovaj pregled istraživanja fokusira se na pozitivne i negativne utjecaje igranja video igara. Mnoga istraživanja ukazuju na negativne posljedice igranja video igara kao npr. probleme prekomjernog igranja, socijalne otuđenosti igrača, agresivnog ponašanja te mnogobrojnih zdravstvenih i psiholoških problema. Uz negativne, istraživanja ukazuju i na pozitivne strane igranja video igara kao što su korištenje video igara u edukativne i terapijske svrhe, poboljšanje kognitivnih, logičkih te perceptivno-motoričkih sposobnosti. Također, pregledom istraživanja na ovu temu ukazano je i na individualne razlike igrača, u osobinama ličnosti i demografskim razlikama.
