Category: Cause and Effect of game addiction


Games are able to increase one’s happiness and their use of knowledge; however it usually affects them in more bad way. For example, people gain weight due to loss of exercise time. They are not able to control their diet. Most importantly, game addicts are not able to make friends with other people. Due to these factors, people change socially and physically. They will have very difficult time to go back into society after the addiction. I have seen a friend who shakes his hands if he is not playing games. Therefore, games are very powerful thing that could manipulate one’s mind and body.
Some of my friends have gain weight due to playing games. Some of my friends gained about 10 kilometer after playing games and they do not look good. As they play more games they tend to get fatter every day. This ruins their body shape. Most importantly, students are suppose to sleep about eight hours a day; however, they are not if they are addicted to games. The average addicted students sleep about four to six hours a day. Therefore, they have very difficult time managing their health benefit. About an year ago, there was a person in Korea who died due to game addiction. He was staying in PC room for five day straight and he was not able to control himself. Also, he did not drink or eat. Therefore, due to his video game addiction his health failed on him. Lastly, one’s eye site gets worse. Not many of the game addicts do not wear glasses or contacts. Usually their eye sites are below zero, which is really harmful to their health. Later they need to get a surgery in their eye to make their eyes better. Thus, game addiction corrupts one physically.
Game addicts do not spend their time talking to their parents or friends. Most of them just  spend most of time with their computer. They cannot be socially active. Therefore, game addicts lose many friends and fails to be in good parents relationship. Most importantly, their grades go down. Some of my friends began a new video game called Heroes of Newerth also known as HON. I heard that they play about three to six hours a day and are not able to manage their time very well. Consequently, it leads to procrastination and fail in class. Therefore games are scary things that could actually kill a person physically and mentally.

People tend to play games because they are very stressed out. As for myself, I play games when I am very stressed out, too. Whenever, I get scolded by my parents or gets bad grade in some of classes, I really get angry and have to play games to relieve my stress. Also, there are people who wants to manipulate their own world and have control over it. For example, World of Warcraft is game where one person can control their own world. Therefore, people who does not have the control over the real world tend to play games such as World of Warcraft, where one can play and manipulate the world. Also, there are people who plays games to just get along with friends and compete. This brings friends together and it helps your social problem. Thus, people play games to get satisfaction and happiness in their own way.
Around the world there are variety people and these people have different way of relieving their stress. Some people eat and some other people sleep to get their satisfaction. However, there are people who gets their happiness from video games. For example, in my school, there are so many kids who are playing games to relieve their stress of school work. These students are not able to stand the stress without playing games everyday. Thus, they lose their control and gets into game addiction in normal case. Out of the 40% of students who play games, there are about 10% of them just to relieve their stress. This demonstrates that game is a good way to feel relieved.

Many people around the world wants to gain control over their own world; therefore, people are playing games to get that control. In games there are no rules that people have to follow. We have the control and we make the rules. Thus, this attraction brings people into games and makes them to get addicted. Especially the people who plays World of Warcraft likes video games because they are able to make their own world. While people are playing games they feel like a tyrant who gets to manipulate other people. Due to this powerful attraction, people get into video game addiction.
Most of the forty percent of the students play games to get along with their friends. If there are students who are playing Call Off Duty or Startcraft, to fit into the group, one must play those games or else they will be a social outcast. Games are able to bring friends together and make their team work. While friends are together they feel really happy because they are having fun together. Therefore, people play games to be happy in their own world.
