Research Paper Help !!!

I was wondering if i could have an online chat with a staff/member about gaming addiction in all cases. Statistics, Gaming related deaths, cases where parents neglected their children etc... This would also be credited as a primary source if a printed the chat from a word document. thank you.

I'm not sure any of us have

I'm not sure any of us have those statistics right at the tips of our fingers. I for one, would have to do some internet research to give you those, but if this is a research paper, it might be better if you did the research. There are some articles linked on this website, mostly in the various "Gaming in the News" forums.

you could also do one-on-one

you could also do one-on-one interviews with gamers, families of gamers and professionals to get a perspective on gaming from all angles. Statistics are important, but are not the only thing which should be in a research paper. (or at least thats what 5 years of writing scientific reports tells me)

I'm in the same spot as

I'm in the same spot as Gamersmom, I know of a few examples, but don't know the statistics. Our primary focus here is on recovery from gaming addiction, not to keep tabs on the world. However if you're looking for a more personal approach, I would be happy to offer my experiences.
