Moreover, participants provided self-reported information on theirweekly time spent gaming. Playing video games for Escapism, Coping, Fantasy, and Competition motives waseach associated with different Big Five personality traits. Moreover, when age, gender, personality traits, andgaming motives were included in a multiple linear regression model as predictors of time spent gaming, lowerExtraversion, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness, as well as more gaming for Social, Escapism, and Competition motives predicted greater time spent gaming.
