When I was a high school student, some of my male classmates are addicted to video games, they always discuss about it as if video games are the most important thing in their life. So I want to know whether all the students, especially male, have the same situation as them.
According to the poll--College Students vs. Video Games--I released during 2013.3.10 to 2013.3.19, 64.84% of the 91 voters have the habit of playing video games, and almost 69% of the responders play video games more than 4 days a week.
Although the high frequency of playing video games, they seem not too indulge in games, 86.2% of those polled don’t think it is the most important thing, and only 25.86% of them don’t know what to do besides playing video games.
But from the viewpoint of the people who doesn't play video games and has friends who plays it, 17.29% of the responders think they are prone to violence, and 71.43% of them agree that they always talk about games.
From the data above, we can know that even though many students play video games, the influence of the games have only affected on the topic, and some kind of alienated from the reality.
“Actually, video games sometimes can release our pressure,” said my friend Jill Lin, 19, she also noted that after her sister play video games, she became milder.
So, to college students, video games are some kind of dualistic.
Dangerous pastime or harmless diversions, what do you think?
