Essay 14: Video gamesByThanh Ha Nguyen-February 19, 201901617FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestWhatsApp

Some people regard video games as harmless fun, or even as a useful educational tool, others, however, believe that videos games are having an adverse effect on the people who play them. In your opinion, do the drawbacks of video games outweigh the benefits?

MANY PEOPLE, AND CHIDREN IN PARTICULARenjoy playing computer games. While I accept that these games can sometimes have a positive effect on the user, I believe that they ARE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE A HARMFUL IMPACT.

On the one hand, video games can be both entertaining and educational. Users, or gamers, ARE TRANSPORTED INTO VIRTUAL WORLDSwhich are often more exciting and engaging than REAL-LIFE PASTIMES. FROM AN EDUCATIONAL PERSPECTIVE, these games ENCOURAGE IMAGINATION AND CREATIVITY, AS WELL AS CONCENTRATION, LOGICAL THINKING AND PROLEM SOLVINGall of which are useful skills outside the gaming context. Furthermore, it has been shown that COMPUTER SIMULATION GAMES can improve users motor skills and HELP TO PREPARE THEM FOR REAL-WORLD TASKS, such as flying a plane.

However, I would argue that THESE BENEFITS ARE OUTWEIGHED BY THE DRAWBACKS . Gaming CAN BE HIGHLY ADDICTIVE because users ARE CONSTANTLY GIVEN SCORES, NEW TARGETS AND FREQUENT REWARDS TO KEEP THEM PLAYING. Many children now spend hours each day trying to progress through the levels of a game or TO GET A HIGHER SCORE THAN THEIR FRIENDS . This type of addiction can have effects ranging from lack of sleep to problems at school, when homework IS SACRIFICED FOR A FEW MORE HOURS ON THE COMPUTER OR CONSOLE . THE RISE IN OBESITY IN RECENT YEARS HAS ALSO BEEN LINKED IN PART TO THE SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE AND LACK OF EXERCISE that often accompany gaming addiction.

In conclusion, it seems to me that the potential dangers of video games are more significant than the possible benefits.

Những cụm từ cần lưu ý:

MANY PEOPLE, AND CHIDREN IN PARTICULAR (nhiều người đặc biệt là trẻ em)

ARE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE A HARMFUL IMPACT (có nhiều khả năng có tác động nguy hại hơn).

REAL-LIFE PASTIMES (các trò chơi giải trí trong đời thực).

COMPUTER SIMULATION GAMES (các trò chơi mô phỏng trên máy tính)

THESE BENEFITS ARE OUTWEIGHED BY THE DRAWBACKS (những lợi ích này là rất ít so với những hạn chế của nó)
