    How I am percepting the future canvas of computer games,one thing is very noticeable here,that the hours of users who play the games will definitely increase because of its increasing obsession in the present times and the direct impact of this increasing time of playing will come in the forms of “hyper tension,blood pressure,loss of vision,and many more severe diseases” which is having the catastrophic impact on the anatomy of human being.The other bad impact of the games is less social contact of users even though “man is a social animal”.so i am seeing human being as a “Living Manaquein”.
    *Definitely if we talk about structure of games that will surely improve in the matter of their “effects,animations,graphics” which will definitely provide a leisure of recreation in the social arena.


    Computer Games have always been the best way to relax and have fun among the youth. Like the other meaningful inventions,these games also have a number of pros and cons. But I believe that as long as one is not addicted to something that may hamper him in some ways or the others, the person should always be allowed to go for it. But when it comes to Computer Games I think people often get addicted to it and this spoils them . So I would suggest all to read this article and understand the basic advantages , disadvantages and Career opportunities in field of Computer Gaming.

    Computer games are nice to play as they are quite interesting and fun as well.But we must not ignore the fact that most of the times these computer games becomes very addictive not only for the children but also for adults.There is no harm in playing computer games once in while but it should not substitute for the outside games ,especially for children.On the other hand computer games have opened up new horizons for software programmers.So popular have become these games,that their demand is no where dying in near future providing a new and exciting career option.

But today computer gaming has become the big money market .Every year there is big event for all gamers around the world organised by wcg(world cyber gaming) .If anyone who loves computer games very much can also make his professional carrier in computer gaming.

  7. Atif Pall says:

    Games have always been a great timepass . Its an irresistible addiction of every one of us ;be it computer games or any other games that entertains you. Childhood is a phase where we normally face a situation referred to as ” Gaming maniac” . Childrens loose their concentration on studies gradually affecting the education side. Each one of us had our time. Besides we still are so much into it . Every single thing in this world has positivity and negativity. Playing computer games helps you react to situations with a sound flexibility and a good response time .
    But then, excessive of anything is not good.

  8. Saheli Dasgupta says:

    A human being’s constant need for change in his ways of being entertained was basically one of the main reasons computer games were developed in the 1st place. With the technologies zooming to its zenith, changes in lifestyle was very predictable. People became busier, with much less time for themselves, the work pressure in this super-competitive world are like walls closing on, so they couldn’t utilize the age old methods of being entertained as time in their hand was less. And in this situation, the computer games came in handy as sleek, trendy stress-busters keeping up with the pace of the generation. Not only that, the mental challenges that some of these games have are very engrossing and extremely helpful an exercise for our brains. It helps us to take quick decisions, makes our minds sharper, increases our attention etc. just like everything else this too has many disadvantages as we can learn through this article. too much of anything is bad. so when this gaming habit becomes an obsession rather than merely a means of entertainment then we see the actual side-effects surfacing. Just as mentioned in this article, which i must say is very well written & organized, people who overdo this means of entertainment become lazy, idle, overactive, aggressive etc. And this aggressiveness is mainly seen in the youth who are the largest consumer group in this section. So, the game developers should use their discretion while selling anything as such to the masses, they should keep in mind that their largest consumer group is the future of the world, our next generation. So they should behave much more responsibly as their actions can quite deeply affect mankind as a whole, where our greatest wealth are our morals and values & hence we need to preserve these endangered qualities before they become obsolete.

    “COMPUTER GAMES CHANGES ONES BRAINS……”Playing games changes the physical structure in the same way as learning to read,playing the piano or navigating using a map. By playing computer games people can gain problem solving skills and can apply logic. The acquire planning and resource management skills moreover they gain hand eye co-ordination, fine motor and spatial skills. They start thinking quickly able to make fast analysis and also gain perseverance. Last but not the least, computer games does not matches the reality.

    As we know Computer Games have been a part of children an teenageers life for the past few decades.But there is a big question that is playing computer is good or bad for us? . Parents always thinkd that video games are time waster and worse and some of the educatione xperts think that these games corrupt the brain. Violent video games are easily blamed by the media and some experts as the reason why some young people become violent or commit extreme anti-social behavior. But many scientists and psychologists find that video games can actually have many benefits – the main one is making kids smart. Video games may actually teach kids high-level thinking skills that they will need in the future.

    Computer games are something like any super hero. It has an awesome craze among the people specially among the teenagers. While playing the computer games, we have to react fast. As a result, we grasp the quality to react fast. But excess of something is not good. It hampers ours eye directly if we play the games continuously. Mental stress or some kind of misbehave may occur for this. So, it is not for creating any pressure, but i believe that we have to enjoy it.

  13. diya mukherjee says:

    computer games have become a very important part of youth’s life. Almost every indivisual love playing computer games. Tic-Tac-Toe was the1st computer game and computer games have evolved to a greater extent.there are varities of computer games like FIFA, solitare. playing of these games have both a positive and a negative impact on a indivisual. in one way, it develops the decision-making quality among youngsters while on other hand it makes them aggressive , and also results in poor academic results. computer games should be played like a game only and it should not affect one’s life and career


    This article is ideal one for those parents who are really worried about their children’s affinity towards COMPUTER GAMES.Computer games have both positive and negative effects.Some of them are clearly described above.So i would like to request parents to allow computer games to their children but there should be a limit regarding the quality of the games.

    It seems like “Rocket Science” to me..
    its not that i don’t play games its just that it seems to me very difficult.
    For me computer games is a stress buster, and a very nice entertainer when i get bored.
    But other than this at time computer games can be a nuisance when you cannot cross a level (at least it happens with me) and u determine to cross that level at any condition.
    And with respect to future anything like this will never be outdated because every time there is always something new that you discover.

    P.S. : I like computer games only when i pass a level 😉

  16. Gourav Kumar says:

    Everything in the world has its pros and cons and computer gaming is also not an exception.
    Computer games makes your mind to think more and it develops the logical ability of a person. Gaming industry is growing year by year and its a good career option for many people who love graphics designing and programming.
    But computer gaming leads to addiction which hamper a person’s personal life, they live in a virtual world and becomes violent and intolerable.

  17. Er Ketan Joshi says:

    As we all know that coin having two face that is why computer gaming have a two face.
    1st face shows the crime part of the game
    2nd face show to develope the strategic mind frame.
    so it will have a two face. But we all know now a days computer games are like career stream, it develope our brain by which we can think twice time to do any think.
    So lastly i want to say that as every coin has two face so you have to take a positive face in which you can enhance your self very perfectly.

  20. oishi chatterjee says:

    Hand eye co-ordination,brain training, thinking and strategy skills – this are the positive impacts on an individuals,Games can be used as training tools in schools to train students on real time activities would be useful. This article provides lots of information on its impact on our society.

  21. shreya sarkar says:

    Wonderful article, i never knew playing computer games had so many cons. It was a pretty informative stuff. However I believe that playing it under control and not making it a regular habit will not be harmful at all. We play games to spare ourselves from boredom or sometimes to relieve ourselves from stress. Computer games even improve our thinking power and our ability to make split second decisions. Therefore playing it under control will save us from its harmful effects while we can still relish on its benefits.

  22. Akash Tripathi says:

    ” Sustainable use continues while Deadly use reduce ”
    Computer games are the habits today. They are everywhere having lots of positives for every group of people, if were used in an constructive way and in legal boundaries .They are fun ,refreshing and as stated money earning also.So i think future is having a boom for computer games.

  23. Tuhin Banerjee says:

    Awesome write up . Understanding Games, its types and uses will surely create a general awareness among the teenagers or the game addicts . A good and proper selection of game is a must ,as a game less brainy can fantasize personality and embrace less logical aspects in every action performed.

    Excessive Gaming can cause insomnia and many other psychological addictions.Thus propagation of adequate knowledge , fable among targeted mass will help. Apart form personality issues and mental deviations it effects our social aspect of life also .A lot of gaming in daily routine separates us , make us a loner.

    So ,just sabotaging time for a “wrong” game will not do any good, it can moreover leave us utterly and infinitely alone .

  24. sneha sinha says:

    Playing games on computer have both pros and cons…It release us from boredom ,improves the reflex action of the mind as well as developing games can be chosen as a career option which promises to have a wide market ..while on the other hand it takes us to the world of fantasy far away from the world of reality and violent games disturbs our mind and concentration adversely to a certain extent .However too much of anything is always harmful and so is the case with playing computer games ..thus playing games within limits is desired..

  25. Nilay Mazumder says:

    Computer gaming is much maligned at times for the level of violence in some games and for the amount of time that it claims that could be put to more productive uses. Some advantages of gaming are that it has educational applications, increases visual processing of information and teaches problem solving skills. Violence in games has an unquestionable negative effect on players, making them more likely to be violent themselves.So many time is wasted! A kid loosen its childhood!Games have educational uses, for example, teaching economic skills like negotiating and purchasing strategies, and are used in college level economics courses to do so. For example, many games allow players to accumulate points or money and then purchase things that will advance their interests in the game. These features simulate markets, and in fact can become commodities outside the game.Gaming teaches problem solving skills. Players are given a set of rules to follow and must figure out the best strategy for achieving the goals set in the gaming context. If the game has multiple players or teams, the problem solving is done in a social context, which teaches people to communicate and cooperate.

  26. ARPIT TARAN says:

    There are lots of people who are fond of playing games. Games have various categories like strategy, action, sports, racing, card games, and many more. In my views computer games explores your mind & thinking capacity but some people take it as a wrong way like games graphic effects in action games are so real. It just depend on the individual, how does he/she take it. If you are good at it, then theirs lots of scope in this field. There are many competitions of games all over the world with good amount of cash prizes. If you like to play games & have imagined any game to develop. So you can learn programming languages & can make game of your own & earn some amount of money but it would require some efforts.

  27. Seema Mishra says:

    In my opinion, computer games have both positive and negative effects. Some example for negative effects are like one may get addicted and cannot concentrate on work.Some people use too much of their time playing and not prioritizing what is more important.
    But on the other side,some games really make you think, critically, problem solving. not all just fun and games.It makes people goal oriented. once they put their mind to something it shows that they can finish it.Your thinking skills might even improve while playing certain mind-challenging games.
