Nowdays, the video games industry is developing rapidly. It becomes a multibillion dollar industry. Video games have become an important part not only in the children’s life but the adults’. Nevertheless, there is an argument wether video games bring good or bad influences on children.
People who have a pro argument claim that video games give a lot of benfits. Playing video games is a good way to kill children’s boredom. It can refresh the children’s mind after a tiring school day. Moreover, they also argue that video games can trigger children to be more creative because the games provide challenging ways to win. In other words, they believe that the video games can actually sharpen a human’s brain.
Conversely, some people believe that video games make children lazy. They argue that playing video games is addictive. As a consequence, most of the children prefer playing video games than studying. These children find it hard to concentrate on their study because they always think about how to spend more time playing video games. In fact, there are also some children who skip their extracurricular lessons, just because they want to play video games. In addition, most of the video games often expose too much violence. Two years ago in the USA, for example, a student shot his teacher and some of his friends. Newspaper said that the boy was deeply influence by actions in the video games he used to play with.
It is obvious that video games have more disadvantages than advantages. Therefore, parents should be very careful in selecting the appropriate games for their children.
