Good morning everyone.We know that through the year online games has grown to the point wheremillions of people all over the world are playing games together.
Online gameshave become extremely popular in recent years. These online games are verypopular especially among the college students. Based on my research, most ofthe university students stated that they play the online games for many hoursbut just a small percentage of them said they play the online games duringtheir leisure. However , I strongly believe that playing online games give badimpacts to students lifestyle. There are some reasons to support my belief.Playing online games will lead to poor academic performance and bad health.
First and foremost, playing online games will give badimpact to the academic performance. Long hours in playing online games affectthe academic as they failed to manage time between playing games and studying.They will not be able to pay full attention for the academic because theyconstantly thinking about their online games. This is because according totheir thinking the online games are more attractive than the subjects at thecollege. They will choose online games rather than studying during theirleisure times. 1% of therespondents in the Freshman Survey stated that they play the online games over20 hours and almost 35% of them admitted playing online games about one hour ina week. These situation will make them donot have enough time to finish all the assignments.
They also do not have muchtime to do revision for their upcoming test. Students that addicted to theonline games may suffer at the end of the semester. Next , it is dangerousfor the students health. The students who are addicted to the online games willspend most their times by playing online games.
They will skip the meals orlose sleep that will negatively impact their health. The addiction to theonline games can also cause suffering from obesity. In 1990, Yuma et al conducted an intensive studyin 9 cities of Japan about the gamesplayed by children and adolescents and its relationship with their physicalhealth. The results showed that obese students were more attracted to computergames. In addition, playing online games can leadto some medical issues such as backaches, headaches, ayestrain and carpaltunnel syndrome pain and numbness that they might feel in their waist, hand,shoulder and elbow. Inclosing, I hope I have shown you why online games gives bad impacts to thestudents lifestyle.
