PC or video games are an electronic gamethat has been made famous among teens way back in the 80's era. It is has been a source of entertainment and stress relief for an after school or holidays activity. Massively multiplayer online games (MMOG) were made possible with the growth of broadband Internet access in many developed countries, using the Internet to allow hundreds of thousands of players to play the same game together. As UTP (Universiti teknologi PETRONAS) which has 24 network accesses, students are able to play online games among themselves via the local area network. This online video games abuse will end up as an addiction and causes negative effects towards their academics, physical and mental health as well as isolation from social activities with family members and friends. The objective of this project is to design a web to change youth behavior towards online game addiction. This report contains the background of the study, the literature review and the methodology in conjunction of completing the project. The theories that have been studied and chosen to be applied in the design of theweb are Cognitive Dissonance, Gagne's Learning Theory and Situated Learning.
