Video games are like alcohol, you are not aware how harmful it is before you have got a serious problem

Description:Playing videos are joy and excited, it also makes you get addicted. Video games has a process to make players get addicted unconsciously. It is about vanity and revenge, but the most critical factor is learning.

Playing video games can get addicted, many people know that, but not everyone understand the reason.

I also play video games, especially online games. I feel excited and successful to beat other players, this is vanity. If I lose a game, I would feel upset and try to fight back to win. Vanity and revenge are elements to make players get addicted, according to my own experience.

Video games can be divided into 2 main types, the first one is a single-player games; another one is multiplayer games, such as online games.

The single-player games are seldom to make players getting addicted, because they are easy to get bored with just trying to beat a higher scores, but the multiplayer games are as dangerous as a boa constrictor.

I sometimes meet skilful players who can beat me easily. Then, I would try to upgrade myself to win my fame back, even pay a certain amount of money to buy weapons. Of course, other players have the same attitude. So, we all get addicted together.   Some young players who would admire skilful players so that they contact skilful players, learning how to improve their playing skills. Once young players see a significant improvement, they can't stop trying to win more players. So, they get addicted.

If you try to play a new video game, you should know that the first level of a game is generally for learning. The second level is for practising, let players feel the joy and excitement of the game. The third level is for players to enhance their skills. Thereafter, the game would give players some difficulty to make players believe that they are able to overcome it, or just out of reach. If a player has gained some more experience, the player begins to have vanity and can't stop playing the game. A player reached a higher level, the player have more chance to get addicted. It's very similar to gambling addiction, the number of time a gambler win, the higher chance the gambler gets addicted.

If a player is unwilling to learn to play a game, that player will never get addicted. Therefore, learning is a most critical factor.

Students are lazy to learn at school, why are they willing to learn seriously for playing video games? It's because of joy, excitement and vanity. Learning at school is boring, learning knowledge from textbooks isn't exciting. If students don't study well, they get punishment. Thus, there is no any motivation for students to study hard at school.

Video games are like alcohol, you're not aware how harmful it is before you have got a serious problem.

Here is a good video talking about

Description:Since I was a kid. I started to find my way to escape from reality. Initially, I escaped by watching cartoons on T.V. Until I was 10, I liked watching movies more. I found both of them could not fully satisfy me for some reasons, so, I tried to read novels. Once I was caught by the magic of novels, I couldn’t rip out of reading.



Description:Recreational fishing is also an activity for having fun by killing lives. The fish catchers drag the fish out of the water to the land, the fish catchers seem to be enjoyable while looking at the fish struggling distressingly.
