Abstract

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. As for the methodology, the information for development of web by John
December is selected. The expectation of this project is that UTP students with serious
game addiction canbe reached out and ensure that they donot abuse video games. The
intervention purpose is to determine level of addiction of UTP students andchange their
behavior towards online games addiction to become a more useful person for
themselves, family and community.
