THE TRUTH OF VIDEO GAMES Convincing people that video games are not going to ruin the lives of the next generation may be a challenging task People believe that anything new is probably evil therefore video games are evil Skeptics believe that video games ruin our children minds and bodies because children are physically inactive while playing them however people dont realize the mental activities that video games engage In comparison video games require much more activity then watching TV At least children have to think about how to solve a problem or decide what to do next when they are playing video games Watching TV provides no brain stimulation at all Parents without knowledge of video games blame video games for their childrens obesity and think video games corrupt the mind It is true that children who play video games probably arent as healthy that children who go out and play football are However I wouldnt say video games are making them obese I think we can attribute overweight children to other factors but parents would probably argue that junk food and soda have nothing to do with it The more popular arguments are that video games corrupt the mind with violence and playing them keeps children away from studying Children never studied long before video games were around On the other hand violence is a valid argument I agree that all the violence probably doesnt do much for childrens mental health but violence can be found in TV books live theatre and even in the schoolyard Children and adults both desire violence and that is why most video games have violence in them People are already desensitized to violence and its not video games fault Parents are the only people who can prevent children from viewing violence Video games do have a rating system which makes it easy for parents to control the amount of violence their children view Video
