Do Video Games effect children negatively?
Debate Rounds (2)
Here are the reasons why I believe video games (if too much) can affect children negatively.
1. Consumerism - Many children who are avid video games fans spend their money on excessive computer upgrades, too many gaming consoles, expensive video games, etc.
2. Social Life - Spending too much time on video games can make your social life bad because you are spending your time in front of pixelated graphics. Instead of going out and talking to people in person, you sit in front of the TV or computer and play for hours.
3. Influence - Violent video games give an unrealistic view of real life and desensitize the games, thinking killing is fun.
4. Physical Health - Spending too much time looking at the screen can give one a poor eyesight. According to a fact I read somewhere, if you spend time playing in front of the screen for few hours then go to bed, you can cut off one hour of your life.
