After seeing a lot of tests done on teens playing violent video games, I came to the conclusion that these video games are taking over boys' lives. In a test done by Denver public school parents, the average high school guy spends more time on the X-box, Wii, Play Station, etc. than he does sports, homework, or time with girls. As more of these video games are produced and played, I predict that by the year 2018 the need to play these video games will be like an addiction and become a serious problem. The bigger problem behind these video games is that most of them are extremely violent. Younger kids in particular are being exposed to violence which may influence them to be more violent and radical. I believe that video games will be around for the rest of time and they will become increasingly addicting to everyone. The facts are right in front of us, all we have to do is open our eyes. Video games are like candy. They should be enjoyed in moderation.

  1. I agree with you. Video games can be very addicting and parents must monitor the amount of time spent playing them starting at a young age. Children need to use their imagination or else they turn into vegetables that only want to watch TV and play video games. When they become adults and have children of their own, children may be neglected. Did you know that there are many adults who are addicted to video and computer games as well? Full grown adults are willing to miss work days at a time in order for their character to reach a higher level. I think it's pathetic and is a problem that society must address. Very good post! You had some good insight on the issue!
