There are studies that show that computer games make children violent, computer games low their creativity. The increasing amount of time children are spending on computers at home and school has raised questions about how the use of computer technology may make a difference in their lives—from helping with homework to causing depression to encouraging violent behavior. Recent survey data show that increased use of the Internet may be linked to increases in loneliness and depression. Of most concern are the findings that playing violent computer games may increase aggressiveness and desensitize a child to suffering, and that the use of computers may blur a child's ability to distinguish real life from simulation. Well, it`s not something to be taken lightly I guess.

I dont believe so i play videos games a heck of a lot and im just fine but other people have different levels of addiction to the games, i can come off whenever i feel like but some people can stay on them for days at a time.

They can affect your thinking if you play it 24/7. But if you only play it every so often, then I think it's fine.
