Internet is fast developed and widely used in the world. People use internet for variety purposes, and over one billion users played computer games, but some of them addicted to internet or online game which was called Internet Gaming Disorder (IGD). IGD was defined and suggested investigating
through standard criteria proposed by DSM-5. The symptoms of IGD include preoccupation with online activity, withdrawal, tolerance, and escape or relief from a negative mood. Some studies and scales considered that emotion was one feature or assessment of internet addiction (IA). Emotion brings
psychological and physiological information of IGD. This study aimed to investigate emotional responses of IGD. Fifty college subjects in Taiwan were recruited and participated in an emotional induced experiment. IGD gamers reported different emotional intensity and expressed different autonomic
nervous activity (from HRV) than non-IGD gamers when watching online game films. The emotional feature of IGD is worthy to be further studied to assist the development of research and applications.
