Many can agree that video games are a great way to pass time and are generally a pretty fun thing to do. From personal experience, I’d also say that computer games can become really addictive, especially when you play online with your friends – it’s easy to lose track of time.
There is a negative side to these computer games; research suggests that playing them regularly for a long time can decrease your grades in school and makes you spend less time on your homework. A friend of mine plays on his Xbox for more hours than he goes to school! Even during weekdays he roughly plays for around 7/8 hours. I definitely agree with these statistics, as playing video games a lot in the past has taken up many hours that I could have used for studying or doing homework. I have found myself doing poorer homework due to being constantly wanting and rushing to get on my tablet or computer. This creates an anxiousness to rush everything, and means I begin not caring about anything else but the computer game.
