- Ninety-seven million Americans play online multiplayer games. While virtually all players surveyed in ADL’s third annual report on experiences in online games appreciated the social connectivity of gaming, an alarmingly large majority continue to encounter a firehose of hate and harassment, including an astounding 60% of gamers ages 13-17 that experienced harassment in online multiplayer games—representing nearly 14 million young people. ADL’s new Table Talk – Bias and Hate in Online Games – provides background information, discussion questions and action ideas for engaging families in a discussion about hate and harassment in online games using the data from the new CTS report on young peoples’ online gaming experiences.
