Recommendations for Industry: Digital Gaming & Social Interactions

These recommendations for game developers and platforms are based on the findings in our Pulse Survey: Digital Gaming and Social Interaction that show while gaming is a highly social activity, there is room for improvement when it comes to providing positive, enjoyable, and fulfilling interactions for young users. Since game design influences player experiences, it’s important to consider how features and mechanics can be intentionally designed to foster more prosocial experiences, which in turn can positively impact user mental health and wellbeing.
