Video games have become an inescapable part of growing up and one cannot be wrong when we say that they also play a large part of the development and socialization of children. Pokemon which was very popular has grown from just a video game into a cultural phenomenon. Technology has become more pervasive in everyday life, and with that comes the question Is technology doing good for us? The effects of video games have always been a cause of contention, right from the time they were invented. Parents have opined that video games cause children to socially isolate themselves, has been a cause of obesity, made children insensitive to violence, and in short a waste of time. However, when we look at the wide variety of games available to play, it becomes hard to decide if all video games are bad for you in general. But there is enough evidence for both arguments; video games can be both good and bad for those that play them.
