All around the world, video games have been a big fascination among young adults and adolescents. Since the late 50’s, video games have made an appearance in almost every Americans’ home. Video games are also a very popular topic on whether or not it is a danger to health, and a danger to the youths’ mind, and how violence from video games could contribute with them. As a person who enjoys playing video games from time to time, I personally believe that video games could do some good wonders to the human mind. In fact, I believe that while playing video games, users are able to get a grip of the fantasy world, and separate their selves from the real world, as if they are a whole different person. Nonetheless, video games are really good with helping users with memory. They are also found excellent to helping players with career boosts. Lastly, video games improve spatial attention. Video games are effective with memory.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
