Video games have been available to consumers for the last 30 years. They are a unique form of entertainment, because they encourage players to become a part of the game's script. Today's sophisticated video games require players to pay constant attention to the game, rather than passively watching a movie.

This has both positive and negative impacts on players. Several studies have been published that explore these impacts on today's children.

If you mean that MA15+ games should be used as a tool for educating students in classes, I agree with that. Video games have developed tremendously in the past 30 years and there are many genres. Many require logical thinking to solve puzzles or riddles, some require fast reaction and observational skills and others involve imagination. Video games can be used to enhance students skills and ability to think, and there are many studies supporting this.

There are indeed negative impacts to the player, but the positive effects outweight the negative ones especially if it is encouraged in school under supervision and an educational enviornment.
