Games, by definition, it provides a way to entertain and relax ourselves. It can include lots of areas, from sports to online and computer games. Among all of them, computer games are one of the most popular of all, it does not only have an effect on children and teens but also adults. Computer games do not only limit on games played in computers and laptops but also including X-box, PSP and also the games apps on our phone. I am sure most people have tried at least one kind of computer games. So why does computer games have such an effect on us?
The answer is simple. Everyone wants to put down their works and relax. It is indeed a very good idea to relax. However, there are lots of arguments in the society about it. Some said games are addictive where some said it is too violent. Actually, I am not worried at these at all but I do have a few points for everyone to think about it.
First, as everyone must have known, the purpose of games is to relax. Of course, we will put down all our stress and enjoy those moments. We will, of course, play hard (hopefully you will work hard too). However, have we ever thought of people besides us? Have you ever thought playing computer games is actually an annoying and also worrying activity? I believe most people will think their parents moaning to ask you to stop playing is annoying but what about them? Are they having a good time too? No. Your parents are just for your own good. However, you do not listen to them or even scold them. Is it a right way to treat a person whom cares about you? Moreover, it is not only you to be annoyed, people sitting near you are also been as much annoyed. Why? When you are trying to enjoy yourself, of course you will try to put yourself into a maximum excitement. Some will put the volume to a very high level or shouting “yes” when they have successfully achieve something or some needs to communicate to each other when playing a “muti-player” game. It is actually annoying to others as you are forcing them to listen to you especially to those who want to concentrate on their work and also resting. This selfish attitude is not acceptable and I think all players of computer games should have a deep think on it.
Are computer games really a bad stuff then? No. As one does not really play computer games, a friend of mine has once told me that “computer games make friends”. At first I do not trust it, thinking there are still awful lots of topics there will be to talk to a friend. However, after times, I find out that it is not that true. Maybe it is not true to girls as girls are less addicted to computer games. But as a male, lots of friends beside me are addicted to computer games and most topics they are talking are within topics about games. It makes me annoyed that I cannot response a single sentence to what they are talking. So games do bring friends. It is a good message to computer game friends.
Do take my advice, play computer games but control yourself for the maximum benefits of computer games.
