Videogames are becoming more and more popular among people of all ages, especially among teenagers and children.
They are so successful because they are funny and exciting and they are a good way to spend your free time when you are alone at home.
There are a lot of videogames so you can choose the one you like best and play it. You can play alone or in a “virtual team”. Sometimes your teammates are people from different countries, so playing videogames becomes a good way to improve your language skills.
For a lot of teens playing videogames is a way to escape from real life. This can be positive because you can feel free from everyday problems for a couple of hours, but it can be also dangerous because for some people the game becomes reality and they cannot separate fantasy from the real world.
Very often children and teenagers play videogames all day long: they don’t do their homework, they don’t practice any sport and slowly they lose contact with people they live with. It is a dangerous addiction that can cause serious health problems. This type of addiction happens especially when people play multiplayer online videogames because they generally have no end. Players enjoy creating and temporarily becoming an online character. They often build relationships with other online players , creating a sort of virtual community.
In my opinion videogames are really interesting and I really enjoy playing them, but I think that when you understand you can’t stop playing, you should ask for help and find other ways to spend your time.
