Why do people play video games?
Entertainment
Video games are identified by many people as a popular
hobby/past time.
Story
Many games have a plot and like a reader of a novel, the
player is encouraged to persevere to the end so they can see
what will happen and how it will be resolved.
Atmosphere
Video games enable the player to be instantly transported to
exotic locations and imaginary worlds.
Role playing
Players are presented the
opportunity to take on the
role of heroic characters,
sport stars, spies etc.
Interactivity
The player is more than an observer of the action in
the games, they are able to live it!
Progress/achievement
Many games have a level system and as the player
accomplishes a level they are able to feel immediate
gratification and success.
Social Dimension
Many games enable multi players and facilitate
socialisation, teamwork and co-operation.
Intensity
Video games are often fast paced and high impact
eg. explosions, shoot out, racing, carnage etc.

Psychological Effects of Gaming
Addiction failure to stop
playing games difficulties in
work or school, telling lies to
loved ones, decreased
attention to personal hygiene,
decreased attention to family
and friends, and disturbances
in the sleep cycle. Withdrawal
symptoms can even include
behaviours as severe as
shaking.
Substance Abuse to
attain offline the
‘adrenaline rush’ games
may provide.
Maladaptive
behaviours such as the
‘sunk cost fallacy’
whereby one is
compelled to keep
playing in order to feel
that previous time and
effort were not wasted.
Autistic children have
been helped with
developmental
disorders.
Predisposition to
Violence The Academy of
Paediatrics says “More than
one thousand scientific
studies and reviews
conclude that significant
exposure to media violence
increases the risk of
aggressive behaviour in
certain children, desensitizes
them to violence and makes
them believe that the world
is a ‘meaner and scarier’
place than it is.”
Mood Enhancement as related to effects of physical activity-games like Wii, which may be
particularly beneficial to otherwise sedentary people.
Emotional Health and Self Esteem may be boosted according to the gamer’s self-
perception.
‘Method Acting’ hypothesis which argues that children can engage in scary or confronting
issues in the virtual world to role-play responses.
Racism is of concern as most
characters in computer
games are Caucasian.
Consumerism is a problem,
as many people feel
pressured to keep up with
buying the latest games,
which can cost more than
$100 dollars.
Social Isolation would appear
to be a problem. Fromme
suggests otherwise as
studies show that most
students do not give up
physical/outdoor activities for
gaming.
To sum up,video games are not bad.If you play a
lot,it can be harmful.It doesn’t exhibit ‘video
games are bad’.
ENOUGH ?S AS GOOD AS A FEAST
Thank you for watching and listening
my presentation.
