|Essay Sample 04 |
Comment on the following statement:
| Lots of teenagers are keen on playing computer games. However adults are sure that computer games teach us nothing and young people should avoid them. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that there is nothing wrong with playing computer games, whereas others think that it is a big waste of time.
I think that computer games are not as bad as some may believe. First of all, there are a lot of educational games. Students can master many skills including languages and mathematics playing those games. Second, there are games that develop your logical thinking. They give you intellectual tasks and analyze your answers. They also relax students after a hard school day.
At the same time there are people who think that computer games are useless. People play “shoot them all” games all day long and forget about studying at all.
In my opinion these people have a point. There are people who become addicted to playing computer games. They forget about reality and live in a new virtual world. However, I am talking about those computer games that teach students useful things, which are really helpful if they are used properly.
I conclusion, I would like to say that a lot of things can be misused and turned into something useless, even harmful. Computer games are not an exception. If, after playing computer games a student becomes more skillful or knowledgeable, he or she should continue playing. If players start forgetting about their reality, playing should be stopped immediately.
