Have you ever watched people playing games on cell phones, computers and other electronic gadgets and wondered if they were just wasting their time? Do you think that all this games will help people to develop theirs minds? More smarter? More creative? Or is just a way to waste of time? this is the future? Will people learn more easier if they just play same "games"?

I think some games you can play on a mobile phone etc can be an education where as a lot of the others do seem like a total waste of time.There is a game that is a game to train you brain like an adding game that is good and another good game you can also get is a quick reaction game thats also good.

Well my brothers used to play computer games all the time when they were young. They still play when they have free time now. They have good jobs in computer programming, one actually programs computer games. I suppose playing games for some can provide experience and inspire future careers. They are pretty smart and have good reflexes. They also get on very well with other people socialably so computer games can't be bad for everyone. For other people computer games can be a way of escaping from the daily grind of life and lets them express their feelings. Card and stratedgy games are also suppose to improve mental agility and capacity.

some games are educational, others are just a waste of time. I have a number of games on my cellphone that I like to play when I am standing in line at the groccery store (educational games like jeopardy and wheel of fortune are better than reaind the tabloids) and a few I'll play when I'm sitting at the cafe drinking my coffee, if I don't have a book to read, at the moment. I have a pile of books now that my mother just loaned me, so I won't be playing games for a while, but the games are good to have incase I get bored sometimes.

For me it is total wasting of time, however it helps some people to relax and forget about hard day at school or work....only if done with limitations... I rather spend my time with good book...looking at small screen on my cell phone is good only for making regular calls...

hi icesmile, if one plays games in which we have to make quick decisions,it can help us to increase our memory power and also helps in focusing on a single task.but too much of games can make one get addicted to it,so playing video games isn't wrong,but there should be some limits to it.

Computers can help develop intelligence, creativity, sure...but just because it can be used that way doesn't mean it will. Objects can't be "the future"...WE'RE the future. Objects are just tools, its our ideas that'll last and shape how things will some day be.

as i think its not a waste of time in my case iwhen i was 11-12 i played many games whole day and many time and i think games can help our mind to grow larger game can effect our thinkness if you make a survey on young child you will notice that. mostly who played games in teen age are inteliggent and more powerfull mind but who dont played are not inteligeen as other so i think playing games is not waste of time its exrsise for mind

I love playing computer games. They're entertaining. But I don't enjoy playing them on cell phones because the screens are so small. I have no idea how people enjoy playing games on cell phones having to look at those small screens. Any ways, who cares if it they don't learn anything or aren't developing their minds. They're just having fun so it's all good.
