This work had as main goal to understand how the electronic games affect the formative process and, for some, become an object of compulsion. Thereunto, when considering the capitalism productive logic, in which all society is directed, electronic games were analyzed as a commodity produced and consumed in the molds of the cultural industry and the way that its rationality acts on the individuals and contributes to the adjustment of conditions in society. From this, it was possible to deepen into the phenomenon of compulsion for electronic games along with the dynamics of capitalist society analysis and its influence on this process formation. The Critical Theory of Society was the basic theoretical support for the reflections carried out in this study and the methodology used was the bibliographical research. A bibliographic survey was performed thinking about choosing materials that would guarantee a volume, quantitative and qualitative, eligible to analyze and to broaden the discussions about electronic games. Faced with a culture that is adapting individuals in an unreflected way and maintaining the conditions that generate inequality and suffering for the great majority of people, the electronic games, in this context, favor a rationality that is condescending with the present conditions in society, since they do not instigate reflection, but rather require the player's abilities that do not exceed the mechanical limits. By providing immersion and control of virtual environments with their fanciful content, they become a means of entertainment and fulfillment of many individuals' desires. For some, this form of entertainment can mean escape from context and conditions of suffering. If capitalist dynamics are compulsory, the elements present in electronic games reinforce the formation of individuals who make this product an object of great investment, which contributes to its intensive use and for it to become an object of compulsion.
