    Nothing done excessively is good; that's the definition of the term, "To a greater degree or in greater amounts than is necessary, normal, or desirable".

    @LauraKelly No, it's not. Kids (like me) spend 2-3 hours maximum on the computer and that's really all you need. I'm excelling in school yet playing as well. However, one thing I'll say is that there are some students in my school who have terrible grades/undesirable ones in addition to playing an excessive amount of games. Just be wary of that. Other than that, gaming is fine when controlled.

    Also, if you're wondering about pedophiles on certain online games, don't worry about that. Pedophiles don't come after people in places where they shouldn't be (like a dating app/site). Games like Fortnite, ROBLOX, Minecraft literally DO NOT have pedophiles. Stranger danger is only good in the real world and not in the virtual world. I suggest educating your child(ren) about sensitive information but let them talk. Games like that are full of kids and I mean it's very unlikely you'll have to deal with weird people. 

    Discord is a chatting platform and if your child(ren) ever bring that up-don't worry. Discord is actually relatively safe. You will not run into pedos or things of that nature unless your child goes into a Discord server aimed for dating (that is an 18+). Tell them about the dangers of revealing sensitive information, but other than that, no, it's OK to let them go on Discord.

    @LauraKelly

    Gaming is among the favourites of today’s generation(including me). I strongly agree that anything should be not done in excess after which it is harmful. It is also applicable for gaming. It’s not like gaming only harm children, it also helps in developing some skills. It gives us enjoyment.

    But yes there are lot of weird games out there, so one should guide small children what to play and what not. 18+ can play anything because they are mature enough. 

    I have heard that professional gamers earn much money, they just have to play all day. Well, it would be quite tedious for me, because I can’t sit for too long on anything.

    Argument Topic: Could be both

    Gaming can improve eye hand coordination and improve your reflexes. But like anything in the world, if played excessively, video games can be really bad. They can destroy your relationships with your family and friends. They can also influence in the way you act and think. They can also affect your mental, and physical health. So gaming be good for you but on the long run it could be really bad and unhealthy for you.

    Argument Topic: Is gaming good or bad for kids?

    In all seriousness, video games can have either good or bad effects. The good part of gaming is that they can improve hand-eye coordination, they can improve problem-solving skills, it also helps your mind's ability to process information, and gaming overall can provide a fun and social form of entertainment. 

    The environment is safe for children if they're mature enough to play that game, such as rated M games are for more mature people that can handle what's happening in the game. It's the parent's responsibility for the kids actions and if they should be able to play that game. People need to understand that video games themselves are not bad, it's mainly the people who play it and who you're surrounded by.

    I think gaming is only bad for you when you take it too far like playing for more than 4 hours straight, not exercising, not getting enough sunlight(vitamin D deficient),  having poor mental health due to playing too much and not getting anything done.

    Argument Topic: Gaming Good or Bad

    @MercedesReyes.   Mercedes I agree with you, but studies have also showed that it helps people with anxiety.  Some people even use gaming instead of seeing a psychiatrist.  Also it has helped people with schizophrenia to relax when they are going into a stressful situation that can make them spiral out of control.

    In my personal experience it can be like a temporary escape from the stress of work. Sure the games may be just as stressful as working but it is fictional, and you don't actually have to deal with it because it is not set in stone.

  • DylanHernandezDylanHernandez 8 Pts   -  
    @DanielTarango Gaming can be really entertaining and a good way to pass time but their is always better options when it comes to hobbies. For example, since I like cars very much, I started building model cars. I also help my family by making crafts for house decoration and this has made our home colorful and not dull.
