I agree that video games can play a big role in behavior. Although it depends on what the game your playing is and who your playing it with, it can affect eve more than behavior also. Games such as GTA for example are more violent and "inappropriate that promote more violent responses and actions out of kids, depending on age and personality.
I Agree with the article because teen who spend their time on electronic devices can affects young people’s social development and behavior has been the target of much speculation and research. Some studies have linked excessive game playing to academic problems and aggressive, antisocial behavior, while others have found the experience beneficial to relationship-building, critical thinking and academic success. 217 adolescents (the average age of 13) and assessed the amount of time they spent playing video games and the type of games they played. Using standardized scales, their teachers evaluated the teens’ behavior, academic effort and achievement. Teens who regularly played for three hours or more a day were more likely to be hyperactive, have behavior issues and show less interest in academics than those who played less than an hour a day or not at all.
Data on game playing came from the adolescents’ responses. Behavior assessments did not include input from parents. The researchers noted that the findings suggest “that electronic gaming, like most hobbies pursued during childhood, may be one of many activities that help young people develop and can be part of a healthy childhood if pursued in moderation.” The study did not prove that particular games caused specific behaviors; it is possible, instead, that teens with certain behavior traits might be attracted to certain types of games. I personally disagree because just because someone plays a violent video game doesn't mean that they will be the same way or act out what they saw. a kids gonna play grand thefit auto and in the game you can steal cars and i dont think a 12 or 13 year old kids gonna go and steal a car.yes parents can be worried but you can also mange how much they play the game. like say they get an hour a day instead of playing the whole day. I think its ok for parents to worry but i just dont think kids will conform to the behavior
Video games don't affect your behavior and make you violent. Children who played for less than an hour each day showed lower rates of aggression than people not playing any video games at all. Newer technology causes a moral panic from parents. This has happened every single time something new and big happens. Rap and Hip-Hop was thought to cause gang violence, violent movies when they became a thing was thought to cause violence, television in general was thought to cause violence when television became a big thing. Same thing with video games. It is factually proven that video games do not cause any violent behavior. Parents just want something to blame their child's violent behaviors on. Playing Grand Theft Auto doesn't make you want to go out and murder a group of people or get involved in heists.
I agree with the article because in the article it says that kids who play it for 3 or more hours tend to not do as good in school or even try. Kids who only play solitary games, (which is a one player game) are more likely to participate in school and do better in school.
I disagree with some of the cons on this page because 97% of teen play video games on a daily bases. Many people argue that video games dose not cause anger and violence. But when you see a teen or even your own brother they are always screaming at the tv , cuss, or even thinking they are big and bad because what they learn in the video game. People today think video games has nothing to do with teens behavior today. But when that is all teens do in the world today what else could it really becoming from. About 80% of the world today agree with the thought of video games being the biggest influences on teens and young adults.
The article I read basically deemed the overall connection between videogames and real world violence a mythical one. I completely agree with this standpoint. The topic of videogames fueling aggressive thoughts only jumpstarted when some shooters such as the Columbine shooters were found to have played violent videogames. I personally believe that someone playing videogames isn't necessarily going to be compelled to have violent actions or thoughts. I can personally say I play violent videogames such as Call of Duty or Mortal Kombat yet I still don't act on any violent tendencies I have. So, while I do think it can potentially introduce some new thoughts or mindsets to individuals, I don't believe violent videogames will convince someone to act violently. The impulse lies in the person, not the game.
I totally agree with this article. I believe that kids/teens who play video games either sway towards being really engaged in school or really hyperactive. I also think that kids/teens with certain behaviors are more likely to play certain video games. I'm a gamer myself, when I play the game (ex. GTAV) for long periods of time I'm unable to focus on my schoolwork the next day. But if I play something more solitary, like Pac Man, I'm more likely to be engaged.
I disagree that video games make people violent. Games can help with making friends and be an excellent pass time. A study shows that people who play single player games are better with academics and peer relations. If a person plays a multiplayer game then it is shown that they have less anxiety and loneliness withdraws. Games are a fun pass time and does not make people violent.
I agree that video games do have an effect on behavior because of all the research and experiments that have proven this statement to be true. Teens who have played video games 3 hours are longer are more likely to act out and have behavioral problems and they don't really care about their academics.
This article states that children who observe adults acting violently tend to repeat what they see from them. Records have shown that Adam Lanza, the shooter of Sandy Hooke Elementary, played the same violent video game routinely for hours at a time. People believe that these violent influences along with movie, social media and music, may have affected him. He was clearly corrupt, but people believe that these sorts of things inspired him or pushed him to do the things that were only thought of in his head.
I agree that video games effect behavior negatively. As many as 97% of US kids ages 12-17 play video games, contributing to the 21.53 billion domestic video game industry. 60% boys and 40% girls that have played a M-Rated game have hit or beat up someone. There is a broad consensus among medical associations, pediatricians, parents, and researchers that violent video games increase aggressive behavior. Many perpetrators of mass shootings played violent video games.
I agree with this article because at the end it talks about how even though in the bobo doll experiment it looks like their fighting, it is also just play with kids it isnt someone trying to harm the other person there is no hate towards each other.
I agree with this article. It states that research demonstrates a consistent relation between violent video game use and increases in aggressive behavior. I have witnessed this first hand. My brother and his best friend were not allowed to play violent video games until they reached a certain age. They were very mild children until they started playing them, They started to become more violent and eventually started fighting each other when they weren't playing video games. My brother also started talking about doing violent things. We were driving next to a car on the interstate and he told my mom to ram them and shove them off the side of the road. I believe video games do have an effect on behavior.
I believe that video games do not cause volences. I play skyrim and i use the volence to releve stress that i cant in real life.
