Do video games have a positive effect on society?
Video games are addictive.
Game developers take advantage of psychology and brain chemistry (dopamine) research to create
that require players to play way more often.
Video games act as a platform for underage gambling.
The American Psychiatric Institution
does not recognise
video games as an addiction.
Just because something can be addictive, it doesn't forbid it to change society for the better.
Anything can be addictive. Video games are no different to eating chocolate or drinking tea in that matter.
