Started from my curiosity about the fenomena I have experienced (that I can`t stop playing game), then I crawled over the search engine to found out about the effect(s) of playing game.
Some researches have been conducted to investigate the effect of playing computer game (and video game) on both mental and physical health. Notes from some separate research, if I may conclude, there are positive and negative effects of playing computer games (except for game addicts).
The Positive Effect(s)
Investigation on a group of toddler who introduced to education game type(group 1) and who did not(group 2), shows that the first group gave better eye-movement coordination, better learning skill (mathematics, writing and reading) than those of group 2.
The Negative Effect(s)
Observation on children in a family who frequently playing computer game, shows that children disposed to be aggressive and reclusive, emotional and impatient to cases. Further study of a professor at Tokyo’s Nihon University, Akio Mori, who observing the effects of video games on brain activity, noting that a higher decrease of beta waves the more one played video games. “Beta wave (that indicate liveliness and degree of tension in the prefrontal region of the brain) activity in people in the [highest amount of video game playing] was constantly near zero, even when they weren’t playing, showing that they hardly used the prefrontal regions of their brains. Many of the people in this group told researchers that they got angry easily, couldn’t concentrate, and had trouble associating with friends”
Playing computer game? It`s up to you. I still do it for about 2-3 hours a day. I think I`m not a game nut yet
