Mid-Research Thoughts

When I looked into my topic I found out a lot more than i thought I was. I found out that there are ways that games can affect you in negative ways and also some positive ways( depends on the game). I also found out that you can really be affected in the way you think just by games.


My Opinion On Gaming Effects, or Lack Thereof.

I think that games do not really have much of anything to them other than fun. Before I say anything I will say that I am doing great in school, I have A’s and B’s, I do not have any history of aggressive behavior. I am a generally nice person, and I do not intend on making you believe what I am saying, this is all my opinion from what I have experienced, and what i have grown up with. I myself have been raised with games ( I love my parents for that. ) and I have found out that games do create better minds, but along with that I also found out that they may be making your child more mad than you think, it can also lead to being antisocial. I do not deny this. i have friends who have become obese from staying at home all day and eating food. They are very antisocial and are socially awkward when it comes to talk to strangers. I have also found that many of my friends also have become more creative, even myself. I do create games with my friends, I do the art, and the voices along with the plot and story. I was given those roles because of my creativity. I do the concept are for the maps, characters, etc. I do a lot of gaming with the time I have on my hands, I am currently a minor profiting gamer I make money so I can but more games. I do not get paid for hours, or days, I play for fun, and if I do a good enough job I can gain things to sell, I make an average of $0.30 a day, it is better than nothing. Back to the point. I think that only good can come from games, depending on how much you play, but then again, it is an arguable statement.
