Parents may think that all that button pushing and game playing may make your teenager addicted, and it does. The only benefits that come from video games are high reflexes, strong and flexible fingers and joints, and a higher processing brain with advanced eye and hand coordination.

On the other hand, teenagers may become completely addicted to video games and they do not go to work (or school), do not eat properly and do not exercise enough. Teenagers can become desensitized to violence when they play a lot of violent video games. There have been reports of criminals copying violent video game crimes (such as those featured in the controversial Grand Theft Auto series). Video games may give teenagers false expectations of real life, as real life cannot be perfectly simulated by video games.
