video games have a positive effect on a lot of aspects of life the most interesting affect i found in this article is that of social gaming as in more recent years games have been developed to inlcude social development such as the mobile phone game Simpsons: Tapped Out, in this game you receive missions and some of the missions allow us to connect with other users of the game and demonstrate a sense of community amongst the players of the game.
