  • I've been a gamer since they first came out more than 40 years ago. If I had a kid I would not let them play games when they are young. When they got older I might let them play but monitor it very closely. If I thought they were becoming addicted or playing too much, it would be taken away from them.

    Those articles are cherry picking big time and missing the point. I remember a TED speaker about video games. It was supposed to be an expert who did a lot of research and studies. I stopped listening when she said she studied heavy gamers who play ten hours a week. Anyone who calls ten hours a week heavy gaming isn't qualified to talk about heavy gaming.

  • As long as they're not playing to the point of neglecting their health and responsibilities I don't genuinely mind.

  • I'd love for my kid to play video games, if I had one. Only downside is the distraction factor from more pressing matters.

    Let's talk about this picture though. I see Xbox 360 controllers, old school PS1 dualshocks, SNES, N64 and Dreamcast controllers, one of which is a MadCatz.

  • Yes my kinds can play video games but in a healthy amount. And how much regulation depends on age/maturity.

  • Dreamcast 😆 and to be honest there are so many articles out on the benefits of playing video games but people are so close minded that even after herring the benefits even if they say oh that's cool or interesting they would probably be like oh but I'm not gonna change my rules on videos games or something along those lines

  • I'm not even going to read the articles. I've been a lifelong gamer and I'll more than likely let my kids play.
    People who say video games cause violent behavior are idiots. That's like saying guns cause murder. It's not the object, it's the person and how that person was introduced to and taught how to properly interact with the object.
