    this may be of interest to people in terms of understanding and situating gameplay in relation to other activities for 12-18 year olds in Ireland.

    A large survey of over 2,000 teenagers has been conducted by two academics on behalf of the National Children’s Office and it includes a section on computer games.

    Key issue to emerge was a significant gender difference in terms of frequency of game play but also that only just over a third report playing games either every day or most days.

    First time to my knowledge we have had such a large survey on this topic in Ireland.
