Masoud Olayee Bonab.

Abstract
Video games are one of the flourishing phenomenon within youth and elicit worries about amount of time spent.This study examined video game use and psychological factors (as indicated by depression, OCD symptomatology, adolescent-parent conflict behavior) and school performance in a sample of 322 16- to 18-year-old Iranian male adolescent subjects. Primary goals of the study were to explore whether video game use is related to adolescent psychological problems, and whether video game use associate with school performance. Adolescents were surveyed in the spring of 2017. The result showed that video game use was not related to depression, OCD symptomology, adolescent-parent conflict behavior and academic achievement, time spent on video games was not related to any studied negative outcomes.The findings were in line with a growing number of studies that have failed to find relationships within time spent on video games and negative outcomes. However, future research should aim at establishing the temporal order of the supposed causal effects.Spending time playing video games does not involve negative consequences, but adolescents who experience problems related to video games are likely to also experience problems in other facets of life.

Key words: Video games, Adolescence, mental health
