CHAPTER 1

THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

Introduction

Rationale

The rise in the use of the internet has led to many changes in our daily life.

In particular, this rise has also led to the rise of online gaming. Online gaming can

refer to any type of game that someone can play through the internet or over a

computer network. Most of the time, online gaming refers to the video games

played over the internet, where multiple players are in different locations around

the world. Everyone who plays video games has a different reason for playing,

and the usage of the game leads to different effects for each individual. Video

games maybe therapeutic for some people, but the small amount of people who

are negatively affected by gaming impact are many.

Setting of the problem

The researchers will try to figure out the effect on lifestyle and behavior of

the online gamer. Online game is the most look up activity followed by many

people nowadays. The group will focus on people that has experience playing

online games and also to those people that is not an online gamer so that they will

be able to compare the answers of the respondents.

Literature Foundation

According to Molcho (1988), gaming has provided evidence that

instructional games can promote retention and the ability to transfer knowledge to

new domains. Instructional games are attractive to learners because they offer a

simple and creative means of providing high-level motivation, clear and

consistent goals, and sustained interactivity.

Also, according to Malone (1981), the theory of intrinsic

motivation is by far the dominant source of support for instructional gaming.

Research has provided evidence that instructional gaming has the intrinsic ability

to develop the learners' confidence in determining their own destiny. This theory

suggests that intrinsic motivation in an instructional gaming context is comprised

of an optimal relationship between fantasy, challenge, curiosity, and control.

Seriousness of the problem

Many studies have shown that one of the problems of people nowadays, is

the failure to achieve and do their assigned works because their attention is

focused only in playing online games. Students, in particular, sometimes forgot to

do their homeworks or projects because they spend their time playing online

games.

For this reason, it is viewed that in playing online games many people

especially students lack knowledge about their lessons because of online games.

Which is why we, researchers, have decided to conduct this research.

LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

General objective

At present, the researchers, are aware in this scenario. This research was

conducted to determine the factors and effects in playing online games to people

especially students.

General purpose

To know how online games can highly affect one’s performance when it

comes to their works. Especially to students that are addicted in playing online

games.

The researchers considered the different impacts in playing online games as one of

the factors that may affect students’ lifestyle and behavior.

5
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

The inputs of the study are: Respondents' self-assessment on their skills in playing

online games has positive and negative impacts on their daily lives. It is one of their way

to express their thoughts and some said that they play online games because of boredom.

Some of the respondents said that it can boost their confidence as a person.

These are the areas that the researchers integrated in the study.

The input will be processed and assessed by gathering, tabulating and analyzing

data, through a researcher made questionnaire. The researchers will know the effects and

impacts in playing online games through the survey conducted in La Immaculada

Concepcion School.

Significance of the Study

Many people especially students have this habit on surfing the internet because it

tends to be one of their past time. Through internet, many students are easily attached in

6
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

playing online games. Through this study, the researchers will know the impacts and

effects of playing online games to students. The groups of people who will benefit from

the study are the following:

For the Senior High School Students. They will be able to enhance their creativity and

imagination. They will be able to see the world in different ways that will help them to

see what’s behind it. Playing online games can also serve as a therapeutic, it serves as

their way of relaxation. It is one that generates positive mood and feeling for students.

For the Community. This will help the community to be aware of the advantages and

disadvantages of playing online games. They will be able to know what to do when they

get the habit of playing online games.

For Future Researchers. The future researchers will be able to make this study as their

basis on the research that they will be conducting. They will be informed on the different

impacts in playing online games and they can also help to make this research broader.

This chapter comprises the related literature taken from different sources such as

books, journals, and articles. It also encompasses related studies from published and

unpublished research studies.

Foreign Literature

Serious gaming is one of the most effective methods to learn from practice

(Khine, 2011; Van der Zee, Holkenborg, & Robinson, 2012), and it is already being used

in different working environments, from hospitals to flying simulators. Gaming and

gamification are now widely regarded as a promising educational strategy (Gee, 2007;

Khine, 2011). Hamari et al. (2016) report that educational games in which challenges

increases with the growing skills and knowledge of students can efficiently engage them

in learning activities. Hamari et al. (2016), which found that perceived challenge in

games was a strong predictor of positive learning outcomes. Several of the participants'

statements reflect on the challenge presented by the games, while echoing some of the

sentiments expressed in relation to adaptability above. Serious and educational games

often combine the concentration demanded by challenging activities and the enjoyment

experienced when maximally utilizing one's skills, as in “serious play” or “playful work”

(Csikszentmihalyi &Schneider, 2000).

McGonigal (2011) observed: “In a good computer or video game you're always playing

on the very edge of your skill level, always on the brink of falling off. When you do fall

off, you feel the urge to climb back on. That's because there is virtually nothing as

11
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

engaging as this state of working at the very limits of your ability.” Research has also

shown that students have higher motivation, via greater self-efficacy and self-worth,

when they perceived themselves to be competent (Covington, 1985). Interest directs

attention, reflects intrinsic motivation, stimulates the desire to continue engagement in an

activity, and is related to school achievement (Schiefele, Krapp, &Winteler, 1992).

Because success is positively valued and failure is negatively valued, people are

inherently motivated and engaged to produce the feeling of competency. Some have

argued that the perception of their competence and how it relates to perceived chances of

success is a fundamental motivator for learning contributing to continuing motivation and

global self-worth. Conversely, many students may feel at least somewhat uncomfortable

or insecure as a function of perceived incompetence, resulting in a reluctance to take risks

or take on new challenges that might increase competencies. (Thomas, 1980). The high

level of focus is often accompanied with a feeling that the activity is going well, that one

is being successful, and often with feelings of inner peace, joy, or wonder.

Csikszentmihalyi (1990).

Local Literature

According to Daniel Ordonez (2013) Here in the Philippines, when you say

games, most often than not you’ll find people that will answer you with DotA, which is

12
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

the most popular game around the Metro as of the moment if not the entire country. It’s

not only DotA that Filipino gamers are clamoring for. Back-track a little bit and you’ll

find that Ragnarok once ruled the gaming scene in the Philippines. Even today, you’ll

find a few people still playing the game, waiting for Ragnarok 2 to finally arrive. There

are also other games that dominated the gaming scene here like Counter-Strike, StarCraft,

RF Online, Cabal Online…well, you get the picture. The popularity of PC gaming,

specifically MMO or LAN gaming, is evident. Almost every school is surrounded by net

cafes where you’ll find groups of high school or college students screaming at the top of

their lungs in mid-game. Planning for the next game night is also a norm between co-

workers during break time. There are also a number of local competitions held every year

catering mostly to PC games. Basically, the trend in the Philippines lies in PC games,

much like the gaming culture in Korea. But what draws the local crowd to these kinds of

games? One word: access. The reason that Filipinos would go out to a net cafe and play

with friends is because it’s accessible anywhere at any time, not to mention that it’s much

more affordable than buying a console. It’s easy entertainment. Playing games in net

cafés has been so popular these past few years that some even have dividers to separate

the gamers from everyone else. Even without a net café in sight, all you really need is a

PC. Sure the net connection is not the best here in the Philippines, but it’s decent enough

for people to still keep on playing. Even if every Filipino gamer had the resources to get a

console, most would only go so far as to buy games that they’re comfortable or familiar

with. Of course there are several Filipino gamers who would love to get out of their

13
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

comfort zones and play something new like Mass Effect, Catherine or Yakuza, but again,

these games are too pricey for the majority, that or too experimental for their taste, which

is why they lean towards the comforts of PC gaming. Another plus worth mentioning is

that generally Filipino gamers love playing with a friend, which is why MMO or LAN

games are such a hit. Filipino gamers call out to each other, even in non-Asian servers,

and find instant connection and team up, even just temporarily. Of course, there’s no

doubt that there are Filipinos that love to play solo, but you can never discount the fact

that Filipinos would always want to play as a group and rarely by themselves. If ever

they’re going to play a game like NBA 2k13, they’d be scheduling the night between

friends.

According to Ysabel Allyna B. Muñoz (2017) One of the advantages of gaming is

meeting people. With this, one gets to learn more about the way the world works.

Hermosisima says that “Online gaming is the main reason why I have a diverse group of

friends who have all contributed to my experiences in life.” Mendoza also agreed.

“(Online gaming) has helped me become more mindful and conscious of the things I say

and do over the internet,” he added. “Anything you say online will be there forever, even

after you delete it. Therefore, it is important to practice precaution in the things you do on

the internet. For Mondigo, it was a little different—playing online games brings you to an

online world. “They have their own economy. People trade and sell goods to each other

and you learn to appreciate every bit of money you get; may it be online or in real life,”

he said. Playing online games has also helped widen his vocabulary. “As a kid, I used to

14
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

search for the meaning of these terms I came across online. From then on, I always

remembered the words I’ve learned and I ended up knowing a bunch of words that my

classmates didn’t,” he shared. According to a study by Granic, Lobel, and Engels (2014),

video games may be responsible for compelling social, cognitive, and emotional

experiences that can help enhance mental health and well-being in children and

adolescents. These could be cognitive, motivational, emotional, and social benefits. But

the question remains. Does gaming really affect one’s studies? Hermosisima, a senior

high school student at Sacred Heart School–Ateneo de Cebu, being a consistent honor

student and an avid LoL player at the same time isn’t that demanding. “Playing didn’t

really interfere with my studies. I was still able to maintain honors while being a

competitive gamer,” he said. In fact, his good academic standing is the main reason why

his mother Menchie decided to support her son even though she did not approve of it in

the beginning. Mondigo shared the same opinion, saying that gaming would never

interfere with studies if one knows how to manage his time well. “As an avid gamer since

I was eight, balancing the two [gaming and studies] came naturally. It’s just a matter of

knowing what to do at the right time,” he said. Some players do become lazy due to being

addicted to gaming, just like Mendoza, who admitted that he did wing 90 percent of his

studies at one point. He emphasizes that the change should start from within. People

would only start to see gaming in a good way if gamers can show they can balance things

out, “dili kay magsige lang og duwa (and not just keep playing),” just like he did. He said

that one should realize that by being lazy, their goals in life would never be

15
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

accomplished. That’s why after developing bad study habits, he decided to discipline

himself and do well in school. It is also crucial that when children look into their parents’

eyes, what they see is somebody who believes in them, regardless of the circumstances.

Menchie Hermosisima was against gaming in the beginning. “He started spending more

time playing so I gave him time limits. There were times when he violated my time rules.

We would always fight and he would even cry. But there came a point where he asked me

why I hated it so much when he was doing good in school,” she recalled.

Because of this, Menchie started researching about eSports. The more she learned

about online gaming, the more she realized the good it brought Hansel. “I discovered it

taught and trained him in many skills that will be helpful in real life. Even prior to High

School, he already demonstrated skills in goal setting, time management, strategic

thinking, among many others. He won’t learn these as fast in a regular school setting.

ESports played a key role in all these,” she said. On the other hand, Mondigo’s mother,

Narra, chose to support her son, saying he was better off as a gamer rather than be

addicted to a much worse vice like illegal drugs. “He can play all he wants just as long as

I see he is at home,” she said. Just like any parent, all she wants is the safety and well-

being of her son and for him to do good in his academics. Narra, an office clerk at

Abellana National School, said there are many students who cut classes or even drop out

of school completely just because of gaming. “But it really depends on the person. If he

wants a good future, then he should do well in school. Whatever he finds important, he

should prioritize and balance,” she added. “Some parents have become too traditional

16
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

when it comes to raising their kids since the concept of gaming is new to their

generation.” If people, especially the parents, see that gaming isn’t what they think it is,

more people would realize that the growing industry is not such a bad thing. With the

right amount of discipline and hard work, nothing—not even online games—could get in

the way of a student’s success.

According to Daria J Kuss (2013) Internet gaming is a booming market. In 2012,

more than one billion individuals played computer games, which fuelled the 8% growth

of the computer gaming industry in the same year.1 A recent report by the market

research company Niko Partners has estimated the People’s Republic of China’s online

gaming market at $12 billion in 2013.2 Massively Multiplayer Online games (MMOs)

offer the possibility to play together with many other players and can be differentiated

based on game content and player experience. A latent profile analysis of survey data

from 4,374 Hungarian online gamers (91% male, mean age 21±6 years) indicated that the

most prominent MMOs were role-playing games, first-person shooters, real-time strategy,

and other games. Kuss analyzed online gaming and potential gaming excess by

interviewing eleven World of Warcraft players (72% male, mean age 27±7.3 years) and

used virtual ethnography75 as well as ludology principles76 to understand how playing

this particular game mirrors participation in popular media culture. In this context, media

17
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

culture is understood as a flexible and evolving area of engagement that requires active

participation.

Gamers spend over 3 billion hours collectively playing video games a week

according to McGonigal (2010), who also argues that this is not nearly enough time to

indulge in the many benefits gaming has to offer, and that people all over the world

should be collectively playing 21 billion hours every week. Much of the previous

research on video gaming is centered on the effects of playing violent video games and

the negative impacts they have on the individual. Hence, there is a lack of research in the

area of non-violent video games, in particular, the emotional and cognitive benefits they

offer for those who play them. Current research in the area of video game play suggests

that there are many benefits to playing for an individual, such as decreasing symptoms of

depression and anxiety, decreasing stress, increasing positive emotions, and primarily,

improving mood (Russoniello, O’Brien and Parks, 2009; Russoniello, Fish & O’Brien,

2013; Granic, Lobel & Engels, 2014). When it comes to experiencing flow during video

game play, the frequency of which an individual plays video games can impact flow

experience. Frequent gamers are defined as individuals who play video games for four

hours or more per week (Green & Bavelier, 2010; Berard, Cain, Watanabe & Sasaki,

2015).

Local Studies

18
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

According to Mark Anthony B. Gubagaras et al. The findings of this study have

shown that, indeed, online games serve as a venue for the formation of a virtual

subculture. The game is like a crucible where elements come together. The Internet

connection allows gamers to play with others of different backgrounds and personalities

around the world. Playing online games involves interaction with other gamers, and it is

through this that relationships are formed. The presence of such interaction creates a

tendency to form patterns in communication or gameplay. A virtual subculture does not

exist in a vacuum. To begin with, nothing is created if the actions within the game are not

consistent. Constant interaction through various forms of communication in the game

enables the gamers to form the virtual subculture. Communication thus plays a vital role

in the formation of a virtual subculture. When gamers chat or fight together, a

relationship is formed. This is the starting point for the creation of a virtual subculture

within the game. They Gubagaras, Morales, Padilla, and Zamora said that 85 are the ones

who create, recreate, and maintain this subculture through the employment of tools for

communication and interaction. Time is an essential factor in the virtual subculture. The

longer the gamer stays within the online game, the greater the possibilities that meanings

are shared, relationships are formed, and interactions are continued. It also sets the trend

whether a subculture is maintained or abandoned. Moreover, the categories for the

gamers are based on time.

According to Maria Portia Olenka C. Placino (2011) Digital games are the

ultimate realization of digital media wherein there is a combination of a cinematic vision

19
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

as well as interactivity of the user, not just as an audience but also as a participant.

Manovich sees digital media as a realization of Water Benjamin’s concept of “perception

in the state of distraction” wherein, “The periodic reappearance of the machinery, the

continuous presence of the communication channel in the message, prevent the subject

from falling into the dream world of illusion for very long, make her alternate between

concentration and detachment.” Manovich also states that the, “cyclical organization of

the user’s experience is the computer games that alternate between FMV (full motion

video) segments and segments requiring the user’s input. Digital games as a new media

provide intervention of the participant as well as the intervention of the mechanism.

Darley points out that:

“The ability and expectation that the spectator physically intervenes to change or

affect what is occurring on the screen does seem to mark a shift which has more

significance… One is offered the semblance of control. Although, ultimately, constrained

by the game program, nevertheless up to appoint one has control over what is occurring

and what will occur—one adapts the mantle of prime mover in a surrogate world. Within

the numerous parameters established by the game itself the player has commensurate

‘freedom’ to select options and is permitted, thereby, a certain degree of agency within

the world of fiction”

LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

This chapter shows the methods and procedures maneuvered by the researchers in

orchestrating the study. It encompasses the participants of the study, setting of the study,

sample and sampling procedure, research instrument, data gathering procedure and the

statistical treatment of data.

Participants of the Study

The respondents of this study were the students from different grade levels in La

Immaculada Concepcion School. The total number of respondents was 100; 37 females

and 63 males. They were selected as respondents of this study because they have an idea

about playing online games.

Setting of the Study

21
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

The researchers have conducted the research in La Immaculada Concepcion

School, from 8th grade to 10th grade students. We chose to pick our respondents in our

school, La Immaculada Concepcion School because we know that most of the people that

are playing games are students or teenagers, like us. But, we also interview a teacher so

that we can also know their opinion on the students that are playing games.

We all know that in La Immaculada Concepcion School, there are a lot of we

called “gamer” even in grade school. So we picked our school not because it is where we

go to but we want to know their opinions and the effects of online games to them. Also,

as a fellow students like them we can give them advice so that they can manage their time

on playing games and doing school works. Playing online games is not unpropitious as

long as you can manage it properly.

As we are researching or interviewing students, in our school, LICS, we can say

that there are still students that can manage their time. We interview some of students in

higher section asking them if they play online games and they said yes. In that, we can

see that you really can play online games and you study as long as you know your

limitations and not be addicted to it.

Sample and Sampling Procedure


Sample 1

22
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

Availability Sampling is a non-probability sampling method wherein the

willingness of a person as the subject to interact with the researchers by responding to

their questions will automatically consider them as their respondents.

Sample 2

Availability sampling was the sampling method used by the researchers in this

research study. This is a method of gathering data from a person that the researchers have

encountered during their data-collection time. Availability sampling requires the

willingness of a person to answer the questions the researchers would be asking.

Research Instrument

23
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

The researchers used the survey questionnaire as the instrument in gathering of

data needed in identifying the effects and impacts of playing online games to students of

La Immaculada Concepcion School. The survey questionnaire was constructed based on

the informal interviews to some personnel, observations, and actual experiences of the

researchers. Additionally, the profile of the respondents and the different factors needed

to be answered by the respondents comprised the survey-questionnaire.

Data Gathering Procedure

24
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

After finalizing and selecting what we need for the data gathering, the researcher

went to the building of Junior High School for taking prior permission to their

Headmasters/ Headmistress for collecting the necessary data.

Through the use of the survey questionnaire, data will be gathered from the 100

selected students of La Immaculada Concepcion School. The researchers distributed the

survey questionnaires to different grade levels of the high school department. Some of the

questionnaires were also recovered in the same day of administration of survey

questionnaires while others were retrieved after few days.

Statistical Treatment of Data

25
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

In the analysis of the data collected, the following statistical techniques and

procedures were used. This method determines the distribution of the subject according to

the frequency of responses on the problems that were presented in this study.

The Weighted Mean was used to determine the average responses of the

participants. The respondents had five options, to wit: 5(Always), 4(Often),

3(Sometimes), 2(Rarely), and 1(Never).

The percentage formula is as follows:

Where:

P = Percentage

f = frequency of occurrences

N = total

The formula for weighted mean is:

26
LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION SCHOOL

Where:

= the weighted mean


= frequency of each option
the sum of all the products of f and x
= the sum of all the respondents

And to analyse the results, the following scale points and description were

adopted:

The table illustrates that 34 out of 100 respondents answered Always in

the statement, “I play online games.” This constitutes the 34% of the total

respondents. Another 19 respondents answered that they play Often. This

constitutes the 19% of the total number of respondents. Then, 25 respondents

answered that they sometimes play. This is equivalent to the 25% of the

respondents. Next, 12 respondents answered that they rarely play online games.

This constitutes the 12% of the total number of respondents. The remaining 10

respondents answered that they never play online games. This is equivalent to the

10% of the total respondents.

This study revealed that the respondents often play online games with a

weighted mean of 3.55.
