Study: Almost All Teens Play Video Games

A recent survey of 1,100 teenagers found that 99 percent of boys and 94 percent of girls play video games.

To many, the most surprising result of the survey was that video gaming is not an isolated pursuit. About 75 percent said that they play games with friends at least some of the time, while 65 percent play with others in the same room, with players helping each other.

A third of the teens, including those in the younger group (ages 12 to 14 years old), play games with mature content recommended for adults only. However, 52 percent said the games made them think about moral and ethical issues.

The Pew Institute performed the survey with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
