Do your video games that you play affect your personality physically or mentally?
Well, in this article I’m going to explain a few points in which how some people can get serious side effects from playing video games (mentally).
I, myself, am a serious video gamer when I have free time but in the past few years I have learnt to limit the time I am on my PS3. First point is playing too much video games and watching the T.V. screen for hours non stop can make your mind’s frequency begin to scramble and rise rapidly which can cause headaches, dizziness and nausea, in some cases epilepsy. This results in too much flashing lights. Your eyes become tired and your eyelids become heavier causing you to get serious pain in your head.
Now, that’s just half of the story. What video games do to you mentally is very awful. The idea of blowing up buildings, stealing cars or even stabbing someone to death for fun all come from playing violent video games. At a young age as you start playing these violent games, the bad information about killing people; stealing things, will all be stuck in your mind. This wrongly received information transfers into fear, stress and anger causing you to do unimaginable things, which could lead into someone being harmed.
A TRUE story I once heard was an 18-year-old boy from Thailand. He goes off and buys GTA IV. He plays it for a few weeks and he gets into this game so much that he absolutely loves it. He loves it so much that he decides to go out, go up to a taxi and stab the taxi driver, stealing the taxi and keeping the dead body in the passengers seat, roaming around the streets of Thailand. Due to the fact that in GTA IV you have the ability to kill and steal cars your mind develops these ideas into real life therefore being controlled by these horrific situations. The boy was caught and when they asked why do it he said I wanted to know what would happen. Well, it was a bit obvious!!
On the other hand, video games doesn’t have to be all bad, in fact it can help you to deal with real life situations that you encounter. It helps your mind develop more of what life can really lead to and what some people go through during their course of life. From what I have observed during my five year of video games, my mind has rapidly increased in the way I act and talk.
You just have to remember what position your putting yourself into.
Why not comment and give me your opinions on this situation.
