Opinion on Violent Games for Teens
*** “If playing video games simply makes people happier, this seems to be a fundamental emotional benefit to consider,” said Isabela Granic.
*** Some people may think that taking drugs, getting drunk and smoking are not harmful when they are presented in video games without the characters feeling any effects from their behavior.
*** "Children and adolescents can become overly involved and even obsessed with video games. Spending large amounts of time playing these games can create problems and lead to... aggressive thoughts and behaviors." says The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
*** And some people think that teens shouldn't be allowed to play violent video games because by playing those game they could commit suicide or kill someone trying to be a person from a video game.
*** I also thought it was cool that i will get better hand eye coordination by playing Halo with my brother.
