I think there may be cases of that. but I certainly wouldn't say it's happening "often".

life is often frustrating. you are going to use a coping mechanism, you could do alot worse than gaming.

find no other means? how about because it's fun? a much more likely answer. the rest sounds like a bunch of opinion and little fact.

Do they?
how did you come to this conclusion?
Did you ask the teenagers?

Yes, it's true. Teenagers sometimes find no other means of expression hence resort to 'addictions' such as video games to drown their sorrows. For cases such as depression, they do so because they feel that they are not competing with anyone for attention when they play. Neither are they trying to prove themselves to anybody. Thankyou.

or they deal with it through games. or just play games. this sounds like an assumption.
