A Second Look at the Games - Riya Patel

During this time of quarantine, I have been able to reconnect with some of my hobbies which would be better enjoyed with more time on your hands. One of which includes video games. Now I know what you may be thinking, video games influence violence, therefore, making them bad. But this is not always the case. There are so many games out there to the point that this statement is invalid. In fact, many games teach you valuable lessons. Take Minecraft for example, it teaches you the ways of survival. Besides, there are a variety of games that can help you out academically which can be more appealing to children and some available to older kids too. We often miss or don’t realize all that games can teach us and choose to overlook its good side. Believe it or not, games help many people connect with one another. Personally, I have met some of the nicest people through playing games. This helps us in the situation of quarantine where we cannot see each other in person but still play games online. We have gotten more time on our hands seeing as we should not be leaving our houses often, which in turn leaves me with more time to connect with friends and family through playing games. Although not all games have the best intentions, I believe that making assumptions based on a few factors is not the best way to judge them.
