As a 28 year old call of duty binge player, it makes me aggressive. Trust a gamers words than these equation solvers.
I... 200 % agreed with you 🤣
I have to say one thing that for teens 1 hour or less should be the maximum amount and that you should not play video games everyday. I find that playing a lot of video games definitely lead to brain fog and as a person who has experienced addiction for video games and also currently suffering with brain fog I have to say that leaving video games has definitely had a positive affect on my cognitive skills and reduced brain fog as well
And watching your TED talk is a chocking hazard
90 percent play video games. so where did they get all that technology in poor countries? this women is a huge misconception
I'm on the verge of divorce, because of my husbands gaming addiction, he can't hold down a job, he has to get 8 to 15 hours a day of gaming online other wise he becomes aggressive and depressed, he has no interest in anything else. He plays games until the early hours of the morning every day. It's crazy.
Finally someone who argues and does research
Loved the way this was explained, was fully convinced. Hats off to your research, the future looks bright and fun to learn .

It would be interesting to find out this idea applied to learn the difference between people who only make visual art and people who only play video games. Braised on hours invested into both categories.
What is her degree of expertise??
If you play 40+ hours a week. It's no longer gaming. It's an addiction. It's no longer entertainment anymore either. As much as people want to jump to the defense of video games, it's sad. Hand eye coordination? Yeah it develops that and so does masturbation but it isnt normal to masturbate for 12 hours a day either, just like gaming for 12 hours a day isn't normal or healthy.
I really appreciate the research-based conclusions that should help to change our perceptions of games and gamers, and I think that one of the most important points she makes is that "binging is never good" because, after all, reality is the only thing that's real, and while we can certainly gain benefits from games, it's crucial to keep perspective of what's most important.
10 hours a week bro, we pullin atleast 13 hrs a day 7 days a week
i think playing video games gave me lung cancer
"Woo" - Daphne Bavelier
Fun fact: Most students who love playing will binge through weekend and holidays because they need a break of school.
Question. Does anyone know a good time limit for gaming? So if I am super addicted to playing video games (like 0 hours per school day and unlimited hours on weekend [which tends to be like maybe 5-8 hrs]) how much time should I reduce my gaming time during the weekends to in order that I can be less addicted.
