"A study from the School of Education at Mills College in California has analysed the link between teenagers' gaming behaviour and their civic engagement offline. The study aimed to discover whether teenagers with more ‘civic gaming experience’ were more likely to engage in real-world activities such as participating in a demonstration and giving or raising money for charity. ‘Civic games’ include games that allow players to help other players and those that explore social or ethical issues."
