The advent and development of technology brings many things which may either ease or make life of people more difficult and complicated. One of results of this development is the opening of online gaming through the internet which has become addictive and one of the widely used leisure activities by many people and teenagers. Online gaming is a technology rather than a genre; a mechanism for connecting players together rather than a particular pattern of game play. Online games are played over some form of computer network, now typically on the Internet. This study aimed to determine the effect of online games to the academic performance of the students in the College of Teacher Education. The researchers used the descriptive-correlational research design. This design described the profile of respondents and determined the difference in academic performance of players and non-players of online games. On the basis results of this study, it can be concluded that playing online games has no significant difference between the academic performances of the respondents for they still excelled in their class as revealed by their academic grades.
