Video Games Can Literally Blow Your Mind And Shrink Your Brain

TPV's Jonathan: "The article from the Nigerian Tribune Website claims the following:

An unhealthy addiction to the technology could disable connections in the brain, literally “blowing the mind.” In fact, they could suffer temporary ‘dementia’ by playing computer games."

"Sade Oguntola is the author of this article and he/she literally believes that if children are exposed to video games for long periods of time, that this will cause their minds to explode. Personally, I am an avid gamer and spend a lot more hours than I should in front of my games console, I have done so since I was 6 years old and I am now 23. My brain has yet to explode and I believe this article to simply be scaremongering amongst potential parents who could be reading this article."

Ive also been gaming since I was 6 and am now 24, similarly I have yet to have my brain explode, If it does happen I'll make sure to alert the media.

scaremongering at its finest, and by that it mean its worst!

These people should be ashamed of themselves, how does lying to the masses help us make progress for the future!?

I agree, I feel the need to call out these scaremongering idiots who write article after article with no facts to simply prey on the misinformed parents of children who play video games.

Games do not make brains explode and I agree Zero if our brains ever explode then we can inform the media and until that actually happens to someone I hope these idiots eventually stop writing lies and actually write something that have got at least some elements of truth.

I have yet to read an article on "harmful video games" where the analyst hasn't felt the need to falsify their findings, or better yet just make stuff up to scare the ignorant.

It's obviously no fault of the parents, they don't know any better and quite frankly who wouldn't want to protect their kids from potential harm?. This is what makes it even more infuriating, these self proclaimed analyst seem to go out of their way to to lie, without even giving a shred of truth or genuine facts to their findings.

"Nigerian Tribune"

sounds just as valid as those emails from nigerian princes.

Too bad they didn't make my head explode before I got to know about the existence of that article.

I literally got my mind blown when I played Super Mario Galaxy for the first time.
