Social Media and the internet today is a basic necessity and we all feel handicapped without the same. However, Facebook games and the requests get quite irritating at times. While they may be fun for some, others are traumatized simply by the number of game requests and invites they receive.
These games are a reason for a lot of other problems too. Gaming might sound interesting to some but these games, like Candy Crush, Criminal case and Gta, is a nuisance to others.
Games on the internet like Gta, subway surfer and Candy Crush lead to obesity. For purely health reasons, limiting techno fun is a must to get our kids outside, playing actively to build fitness.
Games like Candy crush are also an addiction. Marriages go cold because of these gaming addictions. Games like Gta and Candy Crush are designed to hook the player and are no different from cocaine addiction. These innocent gamers become loners with low self-esteem and the problems compound and multiply. With such gaming addiction, people are going extremely socio-phobic and hesitant in creating real relationships because of these virtual games.
Desensitization to Violence and Sexualized Content.
As many as nine out of 10 games depict violence in some form. Women and girls also tend to be depicted only as hyper-sexed beings, which is a grave concern and a lot of young people have a significant increase in aggression and a significant decrease in the ability to delay gratification. These tendencies make them worse family members, students and future employees, which is a tremendous problem.
These games are also a major distraction at work and the time spent on playing these games can be channelized to do something better. It adds to a sedentary lifestyle and nothing else.
Life is a lot more than gaming and the virtual world and people need to realize this fact.
