Of course violent video games have a negative effect on teens. I can say this because my brother plays video games that are beyond what he should be watching. Since he has started playing these games he has learned a couple of bad words.
He is not respectful at all to anyone, I am not sure if it is because of video games or of his friends but from what I have seen it is mostly because of these violent video games . He seems to get very angry if he didn't beat the other characters in the game so he starts cursing, yelling and showing a negative attitude towards family member
I guess it is not just video games that can have a negative effect but friends as well there are many negative effects in this world, violent video games seem to be one , and it can just depend on how that person decides what or how he wants to act.
I believe that violent video games are having a negative affect on young children lives,because young children are getting less energy too go play outside. Also, many teachers,parents,and other adults say that in the past 30 years video games have been very popular to children and thy get to attach to them playing for hours and that can really hurt there eye sight over the years.Children began playing video games for increasing amounts of time, and the games themselves became more graphically violent over time. Games that I grew up with like Super Mario don't really exist in the year 2013 know video games are more advanced and they are mainly about shooting,stealing cars,and girls like San Andres.
Parents, educators, physicians, and researchers began to question what the impact of these changes might be. I understand gamers want to make money and want to make games that can be really popular but they have to understand there is young children who play these games. But, it's not the gamers fault parets should be aware what kind of games there children are playing.I'm still support my side by saying that by the years have gotten to realistic and not for young children under 14 to play.
I just think children under 14 years old should not be allowed to play these violent games.There are rules for everything children should be mature enough to earn the privilege to play these games. I personally never grew up with these type of video games growing up I was just allowed to play racing and good games. I wouldn't want my six year old nephew playing these type of games because he's just not ready to play with them.
I think that it all depends on the person, some it might affect while others it won't. I know that there are many kids and teens who tend to do whatever they play or watch and if they're playing video games which influence killing, robbing, violence, gangs, drugs, or any bad thing they are more likely to do it. I think that video games shouldn't promote violence, drugs or any negative thing because we let smaller, younger brothers play them and we are basically teaching them to do these things instead of telling them not to. If one follows the game they will try to do everything the same; but not only video games affect teens and children, music, T.V., and the internet also give bad influence. I think that every parent should check if the game is too extreme for their children and should also talk with them and tell them that its a game and should never be done in real life.
Many, well more like all teens have a system were they can play video games: PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360, PSP, or enen an iPod. Well everyone of these could be used to play video games any from children to zombies, well if they all could have violent games than any teen could or is playing these killing games. I bet every teen has played a "Call of Duty" or "Grand theft Auto" game, well both of these influence killing, stealing, breaking the law, drugs... so we should worry about all teens playing these games because if they play constantly then they will no longer believe that violence is bad and they will be more likely to do it. So, we should help and try to make our video games not as negative influencing and violent as they are.
Like I said, some video games violent and might show our teens negative things, but they aren't the only ones who set a bad example to out teens, T.V., music, and internet can also be setting a bad example to our teens. Rap only talks about Drugs, alcohol, sex, and how breaking the law is "cool", some movies show gangs, the positive things about entering a gang or crew (money, respect, drugs, sex), and internet could basically show you everything you ask it to show you... so are they only the video games that teach our teens bad things? no there are more than just that source. Even our friends could be where we get our negative things form, we obviously won't way anything because we will trust our friends even if we know that what they are saying or doing is wrong.
Well even if there are friends, t.v., movies, internet, and Video Games that teach our teens negative things without even know it, we should try to get teens to get off of games and think more actively. Well it is estimated that teens spend 0:50-1:45 playing video games which is longer than they take doing physical activity. We should get their mind's off of killing and robbing and should make them have some more time doing physical activity like playing a sport. This will get their mind off of violent video games and will also be better for their health.
You might be saying "Well my child dosen't seem to have a problem with these games." but ley me assure you, they do. Studies have shown that an astonishing 97% of teens and children who play violent video games are affected, so you should worry more about what kind of video games you buy for your children including teens. You might be shocked in knowing the numbers of those who are affected and you should. Another study made in Canada showed 80% answered yes, and very often... after being asked how often do you kick or punch other students who get you mad? Most of the teens who play video games are more violent to their parents and tend to be bullies in their schools and to their friends.
So I believe that we should all worry about what we are buying and playing. Most people don't know about the percentages and extremely high possibilites that video games give teens a bad influence but once you get to see them you will get astonished and probably wont let your child buy another violent video game for their children again. So don't let your children tell you that its stupid and that its not true, because the chances for them to be affected are very, very high. Well I hope next time you want to buy your kid a game you choose one that is not too violent or promotes negative things. Thank you.
No I don't think that video games have a negative effect on teens. Now a days video games are more and more violent. If you want the game to bee good its got to be at least rated T for teen. Some games that are rated E are sometimes a bit fun. But thats mostly for little kids.
I don't think that any game can have a bad effect on teens. Unless the teen is not all there in the head then thats a different story. The games that are fun are mostly rated M. But I think that everyone gets to a point and a age when you know whats right and wrong.
I have been playing video games since I was like five years. I started off with playing games that were for my age. Then i remember wen the Playstation one came out, I stated to play rated T games. Wen I was like 10 I was playing rated M games. Most of them just had killing.
I think that these video games do affect these teenagers. In so many ways like the mind, vision, and health problems. They teach bad things to them.
Violent video games do not have a negative effect on teens. Many people have different opinions. One reason is that they know what there buying or if there parents buy it for them. They cannot blame anyone if anything happens to the teen. They should tell you before you buy it that it is violent.
If your parent agrees then its there responsibility now. If they don't like the game or whatever they shouldn't buy it. Most of the teens today play violent video games and its no different from a movie. Its not going to go bad if you are not crazy in the head. Most of the teens don't even mind the violence because im pretty sure they have seen more or the same violence.
Teens now a days have seen more violence than the video game has. It doesn't have a negative effect on teens. Violent games are played for fun not to try and do what they do in real life. Teens are mature adults and im sure they know what there getting into when they play violent games.
I believe that violent video games do not have an affect on most teens. Violent video games could be a good thing sometimes. Video games could get teens out of trouble. If you really thing about it; Would you want your teen child to be out in the streets, or at home playing video games. Yes it does keep your teen in sometimes and cast them out from the real world but that is not entirely the teens fault. The parents have a great affect on this situation. The parent should say when their teen child can play the game and for how long. I am not going to lie; playing video games inside all day is just so boring. Those teens need to get out more and see how life works. There is nothing inside playing games. It is worthless unless you are going to be a video game designer.
A lot of teens are in the streets or going out on the weekends. They are either drinking, doing drugs, or even both. This is not a good thing to be doing because it becomes an addiction and it is not a good addiction. Violent video games could distract them from all that. Yes there are those drugs, alcohol, and killings in these games but it is better for them to be doing that in the game than in real life. It is hard to stay out of the street or party life when you are a teen. Modern Warefare is a very violent game but it is just so fun but I do not see it affecting any of my friends. These games could be addicting also but it is better than teens going in the streets like I said.
Some experts suggest that violent video games negatively impact kids. I disagree with that idea. Violence has existed long before the invention of TV and video games. Some may say since their introduction into this technologically savvy world, but individual violence has greatly decreased since our march into the 20th century.
I believe that those who place the responsibility on television or video games just wait for tragic incidents like school shootings in order to affix the blame upon Tv and video games, and I think thats wrong.
Violant video games dont play a part of children's behavior. Violant video games give children a experience with out living it. Video games keep children out of trouble in the streets, such as smoking and graffiti. Children with bad behavior has nothing to do with video games. Bad kids are kids that have never been tout the right and wrong. THere have never been reports that a kid has caused harm or become a danger to other people. Parents think that the cause for their child's bad behavior is because of video games. The reason for them bullying is because they feel left out and want to be cool so they cause harm to other kids to make them selfs feel better. Some times the cause for bulling can also be because of the fact that that they want to be cool to impress some other person.
