Abstract

This study examined the effect of playing the mobile game Mobile Legends: Bang Bang on family communication quality. Family communication quality was measured using a translated and slightly modified version of Olson’s Family Communication Scale. Mobile Legends: Bang Bang players were recruited to take part in an online survey as a prerequisite for registration in a Mobile Legends: Bang Bang competition. In total, 204 valid responses were collected. Correlational analysis uncovered that neither how many months an individual had been a player of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang nor how long their average gaming session lasted had any effect on family communication quality. However, a significant positive correlation was found between how frequently a person played Mobile Legends: Bang Bang with family communication quality
