- I agree with this somewhat because I do

believe video can make some people more
violent but not everyone. I believe kids who
cant handle the violence should not play them
and kids that can should be allowed.

Studies have also demonstrated an

association between the amount of time

the risk of childhood obesity.

that All they do and it can lead to physical
problems. You should only play video games
when your work is done and you did some
kind of exercise.

Other health issues have also been linked to

those who had played video games in the
past for at least 3 hours a week were 27%
faster and made 37% fewer errors on
advanced surgical skills. In fact, video game
experience was a better predictor of surgical
skill than prior laparoscopic surgical
experience and years of practice.

Video games always apply pressure on you
witch makes you more successful in pressure

video game simulators to practice their skills.

For example, two studies of a virtual game

environment designed to encourage
teamwork and cooperative working methods
among vocational students found that the

teamwork because you have to use it some

Video games can provide valuable team work
