I hate when people say that video games make people violent. That is simply untrue. Anyone who is smarter than a 2 year old will know that it's just a game and you shouldn't shoot people in real life. And even if they DID turn violent, you can't just point a finger at the game itself, because things like mental conditions could have caused such a reaction. On top of this, that sort of thing happening is still extremely rare. So please, don't blame all video games, and video games alone for "causing violence", because it's not the game's fault. It's the person playing it. It's like saying "all cars are bad because people don't know how to drive and crash them". It just doesn't make sense. It emotionally hurts me that people actually want us gamers gone. I'm looking at you, Miss "my child turned violent because he played a violent video game." Maybe if you actually acknowledged the game's M rating, you would have thought twice about letting your 4 year old play it. This was very ranty, but felt good to get it out.

PLaying video games have saved ME from deppresion and anxiety, I wasn't really good at English at first since im Indian. But after playing Games with international friends I became better not only in ENglish but also typing and writing. 1.Better Reflexes 2.Faster at Strategies 3.Better attention these was with the help of video games. And by video games I mean INTENSE multiplayer online games. Since games like Mario , Mincraft wont help anything. Playing video games also can make GREAT memories with friends

My Dad believes Video Games or Gaming doesn't help me or others, he also believes that I learn nothing from it. Help me. Maybe there are more things about Gaming that I could brag about to my Dad. P.S. I'm wanting to take Game Development as a course for my college.
