How do video games affect the social life of kids? Shelby Tailer James Kimberly This means that when play these games and see their favorite character commit some type of violent action, they want to repeat it.second,video games influence youth negatively by supposedly giving children a negative image of woman. 2.I have the facts that tell you just how video games affect the youth of America.First,one negative influence that video games have is that they can foster violence. Kimberly The most widely used "positive" impact video games are said to have on children is that they may improve a player's manual dexterity and computer literacy. Tailer Part of the increase in aggressive behavior is linked to the amount of time children are allowed to play video games.In one study by Walsh (2000), a majority of teens admitted that their parents do not impose a time limit on the number of hours they are allowed to play video games. Most parents are unaware of the content or the Entertainment Software Rating Board. James School performance It has been shown that there is a negative correlation between the amount of time a child plays video games and the quality of his grades.Children who spend too much time playing video games may neglect their school work in favor of their virtual pastime and may develop an overall apathy toward school in general leading to poor academic performance. Shelby Social Effects One of the main effects that gaming addictions have on teens is that teens who play online video games, often cannot tell the difference between what is reality and what is not real.Some teens have been shown to be so obsessed with certain games,that it was as if the person only lived inside the game and did not care of the real world anymore.Most people who have gaming addicted family members notice that the family members will isolate themselves and spend all their free time playing games. websites Blake Smith,"How do video games affect kids"August 17,2006,1 page,Role Models Today,web,October,18,2012 Gaming often causes teens to isolate themselves from the real world and to constantly play video games.People who are addicted often cannot perform well at school or work and tend to have bad social lives.Some people who are addicted to games also treat their game lives as if it was their real lives and recently their had been an incident in the news where a addicted gamer,became so angered with losing something in a game that he murdered the person that he had lost to. Another rather extreme social and ethical problem with gaming is how addicted people often play games so much that they die from exhaustion or lack of food or water.I think one way to solve the problem of teens spending to much time on the computer games is to have a method of restricting video games. In another study adolescent girls also play video games for an average of 5 hours a week, whereas boys averaged 13 hours a week.The authors also stated that teens who play violent video games for extended periods of time have violent thoughts and actions.
