Im sure you have heard before the rumor that video games are poison to people brains. People have blamed video games for committing crimes. This just isn’t correct, playing video games can so many benefits to your life. For an example lets look at children playing games on there parents’ smartphone. You might take one look at the child and judge the parent for using the phone to keep the child quiet, but the child could be gaining many useful skills. By playing games that cause the brain to think the child can be learning without even knowing it. This will help the child down the road when he or she is faced with a problem that causes the child to think on there feet. Video games are also good at a young age for the child as it gets them experienced to technology early. This is a huge first step in today’s world where just about everything is technology based.
Let’s silence another stereotype about video games, the stereotype is that playing them cause you to be lazy. There are so many options for staying active and playing at the same time. Companies like Nike have made workout games that require you to do actual workouts and you can do it in the comfort of your own home. This saves a person from having to pay for a gym membership and the inconvenience of driving there. There is other options of gaming and getting off the couch. One huge example is the new phenomenon of Pokemon Go. This game requires you to go out and go to different locations in order to find Pokemon. This app was number one on the app store, so you can tell it is very popular and everyone playing it is getting off the couch and walking around
Finally let’s talk about violent video games. People play these games because they are fun not because they are violent. Video games are made to be enjoyed and they are. The fact that people believe these games cause people to commit crimes or go mad is absolutely insane. There are so many other bad things that the person can be doing besides video games. I’d personally say killing some zombies is a lot better then experimenting with drugs.
The bottom line is don’t think about it. Just enjoy the game and the benefits that come with it!
