there is a common misconception that video games create a virtual world which inevitably leads the people who play them astray. but in my opinion, video games have unique values and attractions of their own. they are a great invention of our times and they present a vivid and colorful world in front of us. in video games we can experience something we had never dreamed of. for example, we can travel around the world in a luxury car. we can participate in the "world cup" to play with the most famous football players. we can even fight against our "enemy" with the most advanced weapons in the world.
i like video games for three reasons. for one thing, video games can train our quick response to things that take place in a spilt second. this is surely beneficial to the development of our mental alertness. for another, video games can arouse our curiosity and interest in electronics and computer science. this will very likely lead us to concentrate on these two subjects in school finally, video games provide us with the best kind of entertainment after class. while playing the game, we forget the worries and anxiety in our life and work completely.
of course, video games also have their negative effects. so it is strongly suggested that we do not indulge too much in them. whenever we play them, we should have self-control.
