Abstract

This study examined gender differences in game narratives focused on game rating based ESRB and GRB in their narratives. Narratives were made by 142 middle school students in Korea through computer programming classes. The violence and aggression indices of these game narratives were then analyzed. The submitted game narratives consisted of four elements that they had written and drew by hand on paper with a survey on game frequency, narrative preference degree together. An analysis of the submitted narratives showed gender differences in violence and aggression indices based ESRB and GRB ratings. These results suggest that today’s students are exposed to violence and aggressive environments regularly in games and that boys are exposed to a higher degree than girls.
