do you think video games can actually cause frustration and stress?

Depends on person: Most video games are challenging by nature. Many people face challenges with a sense of carefree fun. Others set unrealistically high standards for themselves, or attach too much importance to winning. Frustration and stress can result from self-criticism and from losing sight of the "big picture". After all, they are only games.
