 The computer game industry has flourished to become the world’s largest
entertainment, especially in the Philippines, one of the problem were students playing with
electronic games for long time without thinking about negative affections especially on their
GPA, especially for some students in CNHS. As the technology improvement cases the
possibility of many things, it has made some wanted and unwanted significant changes in
peoples’ daily life especially among teenagers. In the ground of modern cultural and
industrial competition, the computer games as a new phenomenon has a massive grow in
a short time. This cultural arm as a quiet and effective media has effected all aspects of our
life. Because of the fascinated attraction of these games for children and teenagers, they
spend a lot of time playing games, in fact students spend their mental and nervure energy
on these games to finish the games with tired eyes and mind. Since the computer games
have a lot of fans among children and teenagers, these anxieties are more intense and
they are based on two factors: the first factor is related to the amount of time that children
spend on these games and the second one is related to the nature of the game. So,
students whom are potentially regarded as injurious charm full, when children and
teenagers ignore the other educational and social activities and spend their free time on
these games. In this case the most important concern is that doing computer games take
(waste) the time of other activities such as school activities, free study or exercise.
 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 just like the favorite online games of so many
students in our country which we called the Mobile Legend or (ML), in this game it
needs multiple players in the different area of the game, that’s why multiple players
can join this type of online game. Online game addiction, game addiction is one type
of Internet addiction that encapsulates the maladaptive psychological dependency on
a specific family of IT artefacts – online games. To capture it, many researchers have
adopted the criteria of Internet addiction (Young, 1998b, 2010a) or a broader set for
diagnosing problematic non-substance-related compulsions, that is, behavioral
addictions (Brown, 1997). And if playing online game become an addiction it will be
hard for the parents and to them to end what has been started. One of the
uncontrollable online game that every students or teenagers plays is the Mobile
Legend (ML).
