Video Games Are Changing The World | The Game Fanatics

It all started with games like Pong, simple blocks and squares. As time has gone on, the power of the imagination has transformed technology and taken us on adventures that are much bigger than any amount of words on paper could even give us. (Next-Gen, PS3, Tech, Xbox 360)

Im late 20's age range & i am one of a very few number of people my own age that i know of that actually enjoy reading. I read at least 1 hour every day, i can honestly say not a single person i know of in my age range read one hour a month (novels) & its kind of sad.

I hated hated hated reading in school, not until my junior year a teacher told us to read whatever we wanted & didnt force us to read something of there chosing did i actually start to enjoy reading. I may be way of base here but i belive let kids read what they want & not force books down there throats & they will enjoy it.

Having said all that, i game about 3 hours each day & only read 1 so gaming is winning lol

I actually do agree with that. I didn't enjoy reading until my Junior year as well. I just feel that if they would stop trying to cast such a negative light on video games and making them out to be "murder simulators" (ala Jack Thompson), then maybe more could be done with the platform and it could become a truly positive thing in this world.
