5 Reasons Video Games Aren't So Bad After All

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. (Culture)

Gaming since 1991 when I was 9. Not stopping either. In fact over the past few years I've gotten deeper into gaming than I ever was before. It's pretty much my life.

Started on the coleco vision when I was 3, playing Qbert, then original NES in 1987, gameboy, game gear, super nes, n64, PS2, GameCube, Nintendo ds x360, wii, ps3, Xbox one, eventually wii u and PS4. Never been much for PC gaming but I've got my wife and 2 of my 3 kids into it, the last one being 3 months old, so a little early, though she sleeps on my chest a lot while I game ;)

They should band this kind of article. Its dumb and pointless.

Maybe it's different in Belgium but I've never noticed video games to have a bad reputation. Nobody ever looked at me strange because I said it's my hobby (they were looking strange anyway).
