We should not have time to play video games daily for three reasons. Firstly, when you are playing video games you won't have as much time to do other stuff. Some games are addictive, which means when you play them you can't stop thinking about them or you just want to play them all the time. Secondly, when you play them, they hurt your eyesight and your eyes won't be good as when you played before. Thirdly , when you are playing some violent games you will try to be like them in the games, so for example like GTA, it is a very violent game, so in real life, you might try to be like them (the characters in the game).

Some people might claim that in games that need your brain, you will become smarter and use your brain a lot more. They are forgetting how badly video games hurt your eyesight. Although you will use your brain more, it will damage your vision. We should not have time to play video games daily.

Video games are bad for you??? Nonsense.. I been playing video games my whole life , and they have made me smarter , and improved my reflexes. Video games can help you relieve stress , and can be a great experience! I'm 14 years old . and I have been making over 600 dollars a month by playing "Call Of Duty". I make Youtube videos , and I'm partnered with a network!!! I have 50k subscribers , and I have been doing youtube for only a year now! Most 14 year olds do not make that kind of money , and I am making it off of a video game! The thing that you think is bad. The thing that some people actually resort to when they are feeling down , to have fun , and go into a different world! Some people can't walk , and they are disabled. They can't play sports that they love , so they play virtual sports. Nothing better then having your friends over , and play a game of Madden on a sparkling new Playstation 4!

Video games have negative and positive effects of playing video games. Parents think that they are time wasters and some experts that claim to be an expert says they corrupt the brain. That isn't true. Many real experts studied games like call of duty It is a first person shooter game and it helps your eyesight and trains the brain to make faster decisions without losing accuracy. Some video games are now helping people to remember things because old people lose memory and need to remember things Scientist made a game called neoracer and it helped you multi task. It got harder the longer you went. It helped people remember things. They did a test and saw that old people played better than 20 year olds just starting out and old people for a month In shooting games, the character may be running and shooting at the same time. This requires the real-world player to keep track of the position of the character, where he/she is heading, their speed, where the gun is aiming, if the gunfire is hitting the enemy. Defense News reported that the Army include video games to train soldiers improve their situational awareness in combat. Many strategy games also require players to become mindful of sudden situational changes in the game and adapt accordingly. Kids aren't drawn to violent video games because of the violence. They want to see explosions fireworks and others cool displays. When people tell you that violent video games make you violent that isn't true its just that violent people just like violent games. All those people get their information from the media. Many people are influenced by famous people who are paid to say things they don't believe. Many experts have done tests and it turned out that people who weren't violent were just the same before they played video games. Some video games may help kids with
