Some of the inventors are as young as 14 or 15. These games are good fun, but players must be careful. They should not spend much time on these games because they can become tired or dizzy. Sometimes, players spend too much time on their own because they like to play video games so much. One doctor Says, “This is very bad for children. They must take part in activities with others. All children should play outdoors and develop their social skills. They should be with people of their own age. Children should spend only a small part of their free time playing video games.
