Reasons behind gamer rage in children are complex – and children are good at naming them

Children’s outbursts of rage while playing digital games are causing both concern and public debate around the topic. Taking a novel approach to gamer rage, a new study conducted at the University of Eastern Finland examines the topic from a child’s perspective, finding complex reasons for gamer rage in children. As data, the researchers used interviews with, and essays by, children. The study examined children’s views on the reasons for, and background factors of, gamer rage. In addition, the researchers analysed how rage manifested itself.

The results show that a reason for gamer rage in children was often found in their own performance.
