Video games have always received a bad rap. Maybe it’s because first-generation games—Pong, Space Invaders and the like—were little more than time-wasters with bad graphics. But all that changed long ago. There are now countless highly sophisticated, social-based games with devoted fanbases. Video games can certainly be addictive, sometimes with tragic results, and plenty of games are criticized for extreme violence. There is also the problem of all the sitting that goes along with gaming, and the detrimental health effects.
