I read an article named “Youth stuck on video games”. According to the statistic, young Singaporeans spend 27 hours a week playing games, which raises fears over impact. Lawrence Lee, sixteen years old, who addicted play the video games, said: “I slept and studied only when my parents forced me to, I even skipped brushing my teeth in the morning occasionally…It is the novelty, like getting to know a new girlfriend. You want to spend every minute with her.” The American study noted that if youth spend too many hours on play video games, it will cause many health problems and bad effects for youth.
I found many students in YST addicted to play the computer games. There was a period time, whenever I entered the computer lab in the school, there must be someone who is playing the computer game. They talked about the games all the time even they don’t play the computer game. I know there were some students who played computer games from night to 5am the next day in the morning. Not only in Singapore where I’m studying now, but also in my country China there are lots of youth who addicted to play the computer games. I remember there was a new I saw before which shocked me. One of Chinese student who play the computer game for three days without did any other things even eat. After three days, he just died.
There are more and more youth around world who addicted to play the video games. The harmful of playing computer becomes more serious problem nowadays. In order to make youth grow healthily and don’t put too much energy on the video games, I think there still have a lot of measures that government can take.
