Are you a video game fan? Why or why not?
I actually am. My friends got me into it and I play with a lot of my guy friends. We play together most of the time. I watch my friends playing sometimes. I’m a fan of games.

Do you think video games are more beneficial or harmful?
I don’t think they are harmful now unless they are distracting the person from their homework, but I feel like it’s a personal problem. It’s not the problem of the game itself. It’s a way to get your mind going, being able to escape from life and being able to get into a game and have fun. [It’s] no different [than]a movie.

In what ways do you think this generation’s video game usage will affect their future?
People are really into it. They would probably get into graphic designing to expand more gaming stuff. They’ve already got 3-D effect. It will get kids more employment opportunities if you are really looking into a positive version of it.

Are you a video game fan? Why or why not?
No, I’m not. I play occasionally. It’s something I’m not really into. I do other things.

Do you think video games are more beneficial or harmful?
I don’t see a problem with them. I read somewhere [that]it helps you [with]creativity and problem solving. I’m not really familiar with them.

In what ways do you think this generation’s video game usage will affect their future?
It depends on how much video games a person plays. If you grew up just playing video games and not doing anything else [and]staying inside, I feel that might be detrimental because of motivation problems. If you get all your work done, just trying to relax and having some fun, I don’t think it’s a problem at all. Developmentally, in terms of your brain, also depends on how much you play. There are lots of facts that affect that. It’s hard to say.
