Should there be a law created that says no video games for more than 3 hours a day?

  • Yes it is competely necessary.

    Since the technolgy improved, people are addicted to games. Because they are addicted they keep begging their parents to let them play games. And most of the time the parents cave in. We need to study instead of playing games.When you study good things come out of it but when you play games nothing good coms out of it.

  • Government isn't anyone's parents.

    It is completely absurd to think that the government must regulate something that has no harmful effects. Plus, the government isn't a parent, and they should not be deciding the rules that PARENTS AND PARENTS ALONE should handle. This is one of those things that nobody should mess with if hey are not the actual parents with actual childeen. They are adults, they can make decisions, so stop deciding that government must make these decisions for them.

  • Freedom of choice.

    Although video games have large consequences on those who play them excessively, the United States Government and the constitution strongly advocate "freedom." Freedom is "the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint." Now, as long as this freedom doesn't infringe on the rights of others, the action should be allowed. When people play video games for longer than three hours, they are choosing to hurt themselves, but it's not taking away the rights of anyone else. People should be granted the right to freedom of choice, even if it will interrupt their studies. What you are saying can be compared to "should there be a law banning alcohol, or gambling, etc."

  • It would be an utter waste of time and money.

    The government has created laws that limit absurd and very specific things and many of them are ignored by police and civilians alike. If we allow them to limit this only two options lie ahead.
    1 We allow them to enforce this and cause a major problem of controlling a major multimillion dollar market that has its place in almost every home across America.
    2 We deny them the power to enforce the law and the law is ignored and it has absolutely no effect.

  • No. A law like that really isn't the most important thing.

    I believe people should have the freedom to play video games longer than 3 hours. There are honestly bigger issues to focus on than the amount of time someone uses to playing video games.

    Besides, if its a child playing video games than it should be the parent who decides how long they're allowed to play them a day.

  • No, this is not necessary.

    Having a game played for more than 3 hours is completely fine, unless it could affect the person though everything. It might damage social skills and relationships. However, if it doesn't happen, then there is no need to arrest people for gaming. Prison has enough inmates and they don't want more arrested people for a stupid reason.

  • It's up to parents

    Parents have to govern their children. The only thing the government can stop is the infringement of one individual's rights by another. Playing video games is not the direct infringement of someone's rights. It may, according to some, be bad for your brain to play video games a lot but parents have to control that, not the government.

  • I play games

    For minors, it's up to the parent to set limits not the government. Should the government make rule if people should watch less than 3 hours a day of TV? Video games can become addictive, but it's up to the adults to decide what is too much for a child.

  • Let the state be your nanny

    For minors, it's up to the parent to set limits not the government. Should the government make rule if people should watch less than 3 hours a day of TV? Video games can become addictive, but it's up to the adults to decide what is too much for a child.
