Based on my experience, students nowadays doesn't go to school but rather go in a Cafe to play online games. How could the student successfully finish their studies earlier since they are not going in school regularly?

I agree with you that online games divert students' attention from their studies. They tend to feel more attracted towards virtual games, which I think, is not going to help them in the long run. Good Post!

Definitely agree to that one. Here, students affect their homework, their studies, projects, etc. It would be hard to make sense out of them so let us take the responsibility and help them out. We won't take gaming away from them, just help them manage their time well. :)

Yes, it does affect when the study is jeopardized. The role of a student is to go to the school and to study; not to go to the cafe just to play online games. Playing online games or whatever kind of games must be given a time preference probably during weekend not on school days.

to me yes, it really affect the study of young people if there is not control. one may take at least 2 hours sitting in front of computer to play the online game. there should be a neat control on how they should spend their tiem.

Hi z1mzAm.. welcome to mylot. Yeah I agree with your idea that online gaming do mar the studies of students and many students today get distracted by the glamor of the gaming world.I myself have seen many of very bright students ruining their career because of gaming. I think one need to strike proper balance between gaming and studies.

Online Gaming DEFINITELY effects students. In my personal experience, in high school, i stuck with Console games (at the time N64, Playstaion, Sega Genesis, etc.). The console games affected my studying a little, BUT in college when i started to play World of Warcraft, it was effected greatly. I failed 2 courses :-(. I lost control, i became addicted. If you can control it, then you should be ok, If not ????

It's really sad, but it all really come down to self-discipline... On-line game is very addictive, but study is not... Maybe we should move the Internet Cafe into the school & reward students that got good grades, like Moola!
