For data collection, online gaming addiction questionnaire, cognitive disturbance questionnaire, parenting styles questionnaire, and narcissistic personality traits questionnaire were used. In this research, the correlation and multiple regression were used to analyze the obtained data in SPSS V. 21.

Based on regression analysis, parenting style (P≤0.001, β=0.46), narcissistic personality traits (P≤0.001, β=0.34), and cognitive disturbance (P≤0.025, β=0.11) could significantly predict students’ addiction to online games.
