How Long Can Video Games Matter?

I expect that your third column, in which you'd write 20 games capable of doing the same, cannot be completed.
Neil Pretkelis's insight:

I think video games, just as television and radio, will have a lasting influence on society and continue for a long time.

ummm, forever i'm assuming. when you look into the aspects of gaming it isn't going away anytime soon. to much can be expanded on such as virtual reality and simulations that you can actually interact in, it can all continue to grow in some way. our soldiers use "games" for simulating battle situations and it gives them a small sense for what to expect but wont ever give you what combat will be. all it is is a stepping stone. people dont get bored with games because there is always something new coming out, something new to discover that will entertain millions. battlefield and call of duty are 2 such franchises that do just that.

Neil Pretkelis's insight:

I dont believe video games are ever responsible for human actions, just as a gun does not kill people, people kill people, the same should and can be said for video games.

I will forever use that as an excuse when I should be doing homework instead.
brandon fritchley's comment, November 1, 2013 1:10 PM
i wouldnt say so. depends on what you play. playing online with a group of hackers or cheaters in a game like call of duty just pisses people off and almost always ensures a long wall of profanity like youve been a trucker your whole life. other games require a high level of reaction timing, very little down time and a constant go go go. self esteem i can never see because if you play games a lot sure you get an amount of self achievement winning it but then you have the realization that i have no life cause i just spent a whole day trying to beat that...

This articular makes a good point in that many people view video games as this bad, devil's game, but instead should be seen as something that can do good. It is in the same class as music, novels, and comic books in that it is for entertainment and meant to be something that it can release stress and anger and brightens someones day.
