Effect of Video Games

Video games are looked down upon by parents as time-wasters, and worse, some education experts think that these games corrupt the brain.  Violent video games are readily blamed by the media and some experts as the reason why some youth become violent or commit extreme anti-social behavior.  But many scientists and psychologists find that video games can actually have many benefits – the main one being making kids smart.  Video games may actually teach kids high-level thinking skills that they will need in the future.

Most of the bad effects of video games are blamed on the violence they contain.  Children who play more violent video games are more likely to have increased aggressive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and decreased prosocial helping, according to a scientific study
