Are The Online Games A Danger For The Society?
Many times, we choose a game we think that it is perfect for us to have something new and unusual to do with our time.
If we make the choice of doing something exciting, we want to make sure that we find the right way to enjoy ourselves in the time we have by playing a game that can offer us something precious in the end.
Many games have different aspects that attract us and that make us choose a certain game. In addition, the graphics and the interface not to mention the character design and customization have an important role in choosing the game. Many people search for those and leave aside other aspects like the socialization and what can you actually achieve in the game.
There are also people that find exciting the idea of the game that has a large world map and that is a factor which offers the possibility of exploring new territories and finding the existing creatures in the game.
Our thirst and need of adventure or any other activity that we can do in the game, can have an detrimental effect on us. By playing, the game we can discover our hidden fears and needs that may not be society friendly.
When we think about the negative effects of the games on the people and society as well, the ones that play the game especially, we tend to think that we might be in danger as individuals from the perspective of the persons that not play a game.
Having friends or relatives that play violent games and addictive games for example, we might observe changes in their behavior and we are inclined to leave them alone, because we are afraid of these kind of people.
They might start hitting things and destroying nearby objects, that shows the visible effect of a game upon an individual.
As for the violent games that nowadays are everywhere, the psychologists fear them because they affect the young generation and the evolution of these games is more dangerous than ever for those that play them. These games seem to be more and more popular as time passes by.
Among the most exposed persons to the games that we have on the internet and on, play stations there are the children, that are introduced to these games from an early age and they can learn violence form what they play although their parents are peaceful people.
The therapists alert the parents and suggest them to not allow their children to play video and online games from an early age and to keep them as far as possible because the effects can be devastating for a child that learn violence.
Being the most exposed to the violence in the games and learning fast, children might have violent acts against other children and they don’t know how to justify their behavior because they imitate what they see on the screen.
Maybe it’s better to let them play funny games but not for a long time because their eyes can be affected by the screen and they will have as they grow eye problems due to the playing of the video games and staring at a screen continuously.
Even if the game doesn’t not goes into the category of violent games , they can still influence people by creating dependency of the human mind to some factors that the game has. There are many things that can affect us in that way, if we like a game because it has nice characters or because it has features that we don’t meet in other games, we might be tempted to play it6 all day long and forget about our personal life.
The time that we spend playing a game can be used in some other way if we really want to do that. Spending our free time by playing a game and after that we go back to the chores that we have, is a good thing and it becomes something negative when we put aside our personal life and focus more on the gaming factor.
As for the reactions of adolescents to the online games, they tend to forget about studies and other activities and they focus more on games and antisocial behavior. That is a result of their influence of the market and how the games are shown in a positive light. There is also the freewill that one person has, but because of many entourage pressings, we end up playing games that we do not want just to be accepted by our friends.
The society makes us turn our heads to some other kind of entertainment when we are disappointed of the things that we do not like in the real world. Maybe being isolated is better than being an outcast and trying to fit in an unhealthy society.
The online games create a distortion of the reality itself and the virtual reality and place the individual in his own world, making him unable to distinguish the real factors from the ideal ones. There are many cases that show the effects of online games in the real world, cases in which people died and many others were injured due to the fact that the reality is combined. The individual doesn’t know which reality is the good one and acts according to its own beliefs.
The society has a rapid way of evolving and it can leave many behind that don’t succeed to adapt to it. For that reason many become addicts and forget about the real people and having real friends is a challenge.
People go to the online games to find friends. If they find people in there that they like, they might stick to the games and let the other things unfinished although they are important. The physical condition might get worse due to the lack of sleep and you can end up being sick and not knowing the cause.
The effects may not be immediate but in time we will notice how things change and how we become solitary and less people talk to us because something is wrong but we don’t see that because we are to caught in the our own world.
The online games and the effects they have on the society and people are studied even now because we are trying to find ways to stop them and see how many children and teenagers are affected now. Despite the warnings that the scientist send to people , we still choose the games as our way of escaping the dull reality and creating our own environment and personal space.
Maybe there are many things that should be taken into account when we start to play the games that we found. We should first think of our personal life and what it means to us and we should check carefully the games we want to get to play in the near future.
When the games begin to affect our life and we find ourselves in situations that might cause health damage and psychical ones we should stop and take a break before it’s too late for us to return to our normal life.
Even the therapists fear the danger that the games can do to the society and they try to keep under control this phenomena through different ways, but they have to do endless efforts for that to happen and the success is not always obtained.
In that idea, they advise the people to be, more careful when they start playing the game and they recommend responsibility in playing high level addictive games. That is the only way through which they can warn people to have a personal life and socialize more.
The danger is that you can lose your identity as an individual and you can be outcast for the rest of your life. If we want to have a healthy society and not have dangers like this in it we should think more about accepting the ones around us more and not cast them away because they have a hard time adapting to the way we all are.
Understanding and helping is the key to make the others forget about the games that can cause problems for all of us in the end, problems that we do not want and nobody wants to live in a society where you are afraid to have friends because they might hurt you.11
