You can't take away the joy of playing from kids. May it be computer games, Console games or board games and other toys. Video games are addictive, But with reasonable parenting they can advance kids learning too. And will to learn new things that they can use in real world.
Video games have been proven to sharpen the mind and stem learning. Video games are being used in schools now and there are even video games that were made for children to play at a young age for early development. Not letting your children play video games is really stripping them of the personality they could've come to have, and scarring them with the fear of it.
Most video games teach important life skills, are an important coping method for antisocial children, and build up reflexes.

Video games are AWFUL for your health, and should not be played by even adults! We should not be playing video games, or even looking at screens. We must be like we were in the old days, the good days, where people went outside or read books. Seriously, children are so screen-attached these days. I have 2 kids who have never seen a screen and they are doing great!
