Playing video games is good for teens.In my opinion, I believe playing video games is good for teens because they can make new friends.The shy ones can lose their shyness because you have too communicate a lot while playing online.My other reason is they can have fun and some can even win money by playing video games.

Playing video games are bad for teens because what if their ¨new friends¨ are older than them like someone that is 15 could be playing with someone that says they are also 15 but in reality they could be way older.

In my opinion playing video games are good for teens and here are my reasons why. My first reason is that you could interact with your friends and you could also play with family members that life far away. Another reason is that some games are educational some games teach math some teach history,science and Language Arts. My final reason is that video games are fun you could play video games in your spare time. These are my reasons why video games are good for teens.

I think video games are bad for teens because most teenagers want to play them for hours and it isn't very healthy.

In my opinion, I think video games are bad for teens. My reasoning for this is because if an immature teen plays violent video games then that’s a circumstance that video games are bad for teens. This is because they can turn very violent, and get aggressive.

u said "if", "According to google i stats Kids aged 9 to 12 are starting to become more competitive. This means they may be ready to start playing multiplayer games, or games where they play against others on the same platform or online".

Overdoing video games also could affect other important stuff, like friendships and how well a kid does in school. And kids who play violent video games might act more aggressively.

But here's the good news: Playing video games some of the time can be OK. Choose quality games, and limit screen time — which includes TV, computer, smartphone, tablet, and video game time combined — to a reasonable amount.

A good game will be the right one for how old you are. Games are rated like movies and your mom or dad can help figure out which ones you should use. If you can choose one that gets you up and moving, that's even better.

Playing video games are bad for teens because they won't get enough sleep. Also, they wouldn't attend school or do any assignments for classes.

I am not allowed to have any type of video games in my household, so playing for ONLY two hours in your house will not do me harm like other people.

You have to look at both sides and understand the truth. I understand that video games can make you smarter but there is more research and data that shows video games to more harm than good.
