Summary of the Harmful Effects of Video Games on Teenagers
The kind of leisure activity that a child engages in has a direct effect on his/her physical,
social, and mental wellbeing. While video games are entertaining, their disastrous effects on
physical, social, and mental skills cannot be overemphasized. In part, the sedentary nature of
these games leads to players developing health problems such as obesity and heart attacks. In
addition to this, most of the teenagers who become addicted to these games are unable to develop
their social skills. Worse still, teenagers lack enough time to participate in their academic
activities due to committing a lot of their personal time on games.
The recent surge in the number teenagers who are obese is one of the main cause of
interest in this topic. In addition, there has been an increase in cases of aggressive behavior
among teenagers, which can be attributed too much exposure to violence through video games.
In effect, there is a need for parents to understand the effects of these games on teenagers.
Notably, video games have been in existence from as early as 1985. Initially, the industry
was small and unstructured; however, it has enjoyed a tremendous growth. For instance, the
industry was worth $ 100 million in 1985, by 1990 it was valued at $4 billion, while as recent as
2007 it had a market volume of $93 billion. In future, this industry is expected to have an even
larger growth. In part, the increased income levels in developing and developed economies will
play a significant role in spreading video games to all regions in the world. In light of this, the
topic on effects of video games raises critical issues that should be analyzed.
