WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Too much video gaming among children and teens may lead to depression according to a new study.

Researchers looked at the video game habits of over 3,000 children to identify the risk factors for becoming a problem gamer.

Those who played more video games,  and had fewer social skills were highly impulsive were at the highest risk of becoming pathological gamers.

They found excessive gaming worsened depression, anxiety and social phobias among children already suffering from mental health problems.
