Electronic games or often referred to as online games, have experienced very rapid development and progress. This can be seen in various small cities in all corners of Indonesia, where many game centers have emerged. Even lately, the type and theme of the game that develops leads to the theme of violence that triggers aggressive behavior in adolescents. In addition, as the number of game addicts increases, the number of criminal acts triggered by the game increases. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of addiction to playing games with personality disorders in game players. This research uses observational analytic method with cross sectional design. The research subjects were game players in the Makassar City Game Center which were taken in total sampling. Data is collected using Game Addiction Scale (GAS) questionnaire, Mini International Neurophysciatric Interview (MINI), and game player data sheets. Hypothesis testing the correlation between addiction to playing games with personality disorders was analyzed by the two free sample T Test. Of the 50 gamers in the Game center that were sampled, there were 48 people who experienced personality disorders.
