It only effects you if you're a dumb arse and don;t know reality from virtual.

I honestly can't say i've experienced any negative effects due to gaming. I've been gaming since I was 4, played vice city when I was 7/8 - I'm a pretty normal being, the only possible negative is that games may make it easier to just do things - it decreases our self control a little.

The amount of violence I read and was exposed to in my American history class had a negative effect on me so if I become violent and hurt some one I'm gonna sue my college.

Hey if it works on video games why not American History class?

The main negative with games is that they can be addicting. So setting limits is a good thing especially when dealing with children. Other then that let them play.

The only negative effect I've ever experienced is a bit of increased irritability whenever I'm interrupted during an especially tense moment of concentration or joy in a game.
It just makes me want to scream at whoever is interrupting me to go away for a while until I've gotten past what I'm doing.

Thankfully I'm learning how to tamp down my knee-jerk reactions whenever that happens.
It takes concentration, but it's better than letting myself give in to such immature outbursts, so the effort is worth it.
