Based on uses and gratifications theory, stress and self-control, these three aspects were used to analyze the motivations of mobile games use among university students. The study used a multi-stage sampling method and a sample of Chinese university students from eight departments of four universities in Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an and Jinan was selected. 907 questionnaires were distributed and the number of valid questionnaires was 416.
