Every day millions and millions of people sit down to play video games. Some for 5 minutes, and some for 5 hours. Every second people are playing video games, they could be doing something else. Something more productive. People who play video games constantly tend to be people without jobs, have a bad work ethic, or even sometimes students who should be doing homework. The people who play video games the most are actually the youth of today. They should not be wasting some time on a video game. The youth of today should be learning many new things, things that could help them later in life. The people playing video games could be doing much more productive things such as homework, reading, hanging out with friends having a social life, playing an instrument, playing a sport, just pretty much anything that does not involve sitting in front of a television for long periods of time.
No I am not saying everyone who plays video games are lazy and should be doing something else because a lot of people who do play video games just play them for entertainment for a little bit after they have what is needed to be done, done. I am just saying the people who do not have a job, go try to find a job. Those who should be doing homework to get good grades, get the homework done so they have time for entertainment such as video games. Yes the youth has more free time then older people and they usually do get their stuff done, but why should the kids spend every day on video games when they could be learning some great things such as an instrument or a sport or even a language that could help them later in life? Not only are the video games holding them back from doing their work, but most video games that kids play are very violent that kids could easily pick up on. Kids of today tend to be a lot more aggressive then how people from my age and older i am sure. Aggressive is not always and usually is not the best way for kids to be.
The youth are not all to blame though. The parents who let there kids play it every day and not make them go do something productive, are just if not more to blame for the youth and their almost obsession to video games today. The parents can easily say, "Stop playing and go outside!", or "Get all of your homework done and read for half an hour so you can play some video games." The kids parents could try to put a little more effort into their kids' minds so they have a better brain and mind so essentially they can also have a better future. Who knows, maybe their kid could turn out to be the world's best guitar player! I am not saying parents are bad and are doing the wrong thing, I just believe it would be better for kids to be more productive and active to be a better person. It just all starts with people acting on there actions.
No not all people who play video games are being corrupted, and no not all kids who play video games are aggressive and not very productive, but yes there are a significant amount who are. There are too many who could be doing so much more with their time then sitting around pushing a couple buttons watching a screen. The youth should be learning and doing things that are going to help them be healthier or smarter or anything. I say yes to cutting back on video games.
