According to Abigail Elise who wrote the article; Video Games Have No Effect On Children’s Behavior, New Study Finds on the November 22nd 2013, video games and television has been proven to not be harmful to children, but otherwise. A study in United Kingdom has been held in order to determine if video games were causing deficit disorder or depression. Around 11 000 children were used for the studies where the parents would answer survey questions after tracking their kids’ behavior for a period of time. The study concludes that video games can actually improve some parts of the brain. Furthermore, gamers have somewhat more developed spatial orientation, memory and strategic planning since video games are training those. Games can also “counterattack some risk factors for mental diseases as post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia and neurodegenerative disease”.
This study is highly amazing because ever since I was young, I heard all over the media that some children were forbidden or limited in playing video games or watching TV because it was “bad” for them. By informing parents of this study, they will probably have less fear letting their children have their “Fun”. Many should start acknowledging video games and have respect for it since it can improve so many things. Anyhow, there was a recent person who started killing people randomly in a street because he played too much GTA, according to the news. It might be true that some video games have some influences that are less good, but it is absurd to blame video games for everything.
