Since then, there has been a debate on whether video games are good or bad.
Some say video games are bad and rot your brain, but there are others that believe that video games are beneficial.
They believe that video games could help people with mental disorders such as schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder, or neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s or dementia.
In fact, the military uses video games to train their soldiers; more specifically they use first-person shooters.
When the world was first introduced to video games it didn’t have a screen or our definition of advanced technology.
To them it was the most advanced technology the world would ever get.
Games don’t give peopleproblem solving skills unless they are games that involve logic.
If the video games are just an adventure game, shooting game, or a game to mess around on there’s no learning. Often times it is difficult to distinguish what is real and what is fiction in a game that incorporates history.
People may tell others ‘It’s just a game’ because it is.
Spending time with family and friends is becoming less of a priority partially due to games becoming a more common form of entertainment.
School is also being put aside: homework isn’t being done, grades are falling and classes are being failed.
The first video game was called “Pong.” It’s the pixelated virtual version of table tennis with two dimensional graphics.
It was released in 1972 and was played on an Atari which was released June 28th, 1972 and is one of the first gaming consoles to be produced.
