Computer Games

Extracts from this document...


Introduction Different computer games have different genres, meaning it is a different kind or type of game. They are used to keep people entertained and occupied for a short or long period of time, but what makes computer games bad? Main uses of computer games The main use of computer games is to keep people entertained. The computer games have different genres and introduce gamers to different situations and problems, so that they could be ready for such events, such as driving and playing sports. Obviously, there are some games that cannot be real, such as Doom, which involves monsters, and as we all know, monsters aren't real, on planet Earth!

So you see, every game has a form of violence, but some games have more of an effect on the gamers. Conclusion In conclusion, I do not think violent video games make all game players violent. The reason I think this is because I play violent video games, and I have never gone on a killing spree. This is because I know that it is unreal, unlike some people who can't tell the difference between the game play and the real world.
