Some of you might be thinking to yourself right now as your reading this article, “What are you talking about. Of course gaming is good!” but then there might also be some of you who think “Gaming is the worst thing that ever happened to this world.” Many people stereotype when it comes to Gaming, like “Boys are natural gamers” and “All girls hate gaming!” But this is definitely NOT true. With the recent change of rules, to where anyone can now have their phone out almost anywhere, a lot more kids have been gaming on school grounds. Boys AND Girls.

So back to our question. Is gaming good or bad? I have some evidence for both. According to recent studies, gaming helps your brain grow and remember things better. But most people don’t  care about studies, and since this is an opinion article. This is what I think.

First off all, in the end the decision is up to you. You can game if you want. Second, lets clarify. We are talking about VIDEO GAMES. Not board or card games. Honestly in my opinion, I think that it depends on whether you are addicted or not. You see, games like Fortnite are SUPER addictive. I am walking down the hallway and run into someone, because they are playing Fortnite. That’s just plain dumb. However, for me to say “I HATE GAMING” would be hypocritical. Because as long as its not day and night 24/7, it’s just not bad for you. Gaming to me, is fun. Gaming to me with friends, is one of my favorite things to do. My cousin, for example, lives very far away in Wisconsin. I almost never get to see him, so if I can talk to him while playing a game, it’s very special. So back to Fortnite, the game that is sweeping the world by storm (pun intended). I play it occasionally. It’s really just what you think. Gaming can be good, or bad. If your addicted, you should probably get a new hobby. But if you just play for fun then game on!

So is gaming good or bad? Neither really. Just don’t get addicted. And Happy Thanksgiving Algood Middle School!!
