Some people regard video games as harmless fun, or even as a useful
educational tool. Others, however, believe that videos games are having an
adverse effect on the people who play them. In your opinion, do the drawbacks of
video games outweigh the benefits?


People have different views about playing video games in their leisure time. Some people suppose that playing video games is not harmful or even as a educational tool, others suppose that video games have bad impact on gamers. In my opinion, the disadvantages of video games outweigh the advantages.

On the one hand, playing video games helps people to relax after working or studying. Firstly,video games are usually harmless and available everywhere. People can play video games with their smart devices anytime and anywhere they want with devices connected to Internet such as : Ipad,Iphone,… An other benefit is that gamers can easily avoid injuries while playing video games instead of sport activities. Secondly, puzzle and quiz games enhance children to be more creative while playing. For example , quiz show like “Who is millionaire?” has been well known for its entertainment to those who enjoy to solve quizs. Variety of educational video games could help children to learn math or other new language because they were programmed and coded with beautiful pictures and decorations so gamers can feel a sense of stimulation while playing them.

On the other hand, I suppose that video game will bring many terrible affections to those who play it than its advantages. The first reason is people who are exposed to video games can be addicted by challenges in the game. Players always find the way to get over new challenge or even their friend’s results. This can lead gamers to sedentary lifestyle and lack of exercise as they spend too much time improving their skills in video games. Secondly, video games on electronics devices can cause many diseases to people who play them. Being exposed to video games can compromise to our eyes and result in obesity. It has been witnessed many children that their eyes have been damaged by playing games hours everyday and they have to undertake dangerous operations by doctors to cure their eyes since they are at a very young age.

I suppose that parents should be the role model to their children by spending less time on mobile devices and limit their children by taking them out to play sport on a regular basis.The authorities should enact laws to ban video games since variety of games are now becoming increasingly common.
