In recent years, there has been an increase in the playing of digital games in children, adolescents and adults worldwide. Not only has interest in digital games grown dramatically, but variations in the types of games in different fields have also occurred. An example is the emergence of three- and two-dimensional games. Based on this, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of two- and three-dimensional video games on social creativity and skills of male students. To this end, 45 students of the Persian Gulf University were selected through recall and after matching according to the intelligence score and experience of playing video games, they were divided into three groups (two experimental and one control groups) of 15 students each. In a 20-session period, participants in the two experimental groups, participated in two- and three-dimensional video games. Torrance Creativity (SC) and social skills Inventory (SSI) tests were conducted for all  participants in two stages: pre-test and post-test. Data were analysed using covariance analysis. The results showed that two- and three-dimensional video games affected fluency and only three-dimensional video games affected flexibility, which is one of the components of creativity. In addition, two-dimensional video games affected social control, which is a component of social skills. From the findings of this research, it can be deduced that playing two- and three-dimensional video games is one of the factors that influence creativity (fluidity and flexibility) and social skills (social control).
