As much as the world has progressed over the years, there's still an underlying belief from some parents that games are not good.

Mom: Get off Xbox it’s going to ruin your eyes and make you violent.
Me: 1, your just going to ruin your eyes by going downstairs to watch tv and stare at a screen like me. 2, if it’s “going to make me violent” then why did you buy it for me?
True story. Help
Ok, someone tell me if this makes sense... I was just sitting at home, my parents both at work, just playing save the world (fortnite) and minding my own business. My brother messes with the sink and causes it to drain and they fix it later, but before that, they take away some more of his money and unplug MY PS4 cause there mad. They gave him back him back his money, but won’t give me back my ps4. I’m Thai king about suicide because of how rediculus this is, not because of the game, but because there parents, they would probably say, “ it’s always that damn game!!!”
I showed this to my ma she went with the typical i am pretty much always right response i swear i wanted to punch a hole in the wall and even if my hand does not go through i am still going to try and not stop until my hands bleed
Parents saying that games does not prepare children for future responsibilities...ha!
I say that most games like Fallout Shelter,Civilization,And hell even escort-the-payload games can promote responsibility,quick thinking,organization,and even rational thinking.
I would be so depressed if it wasn’t for online gaming, the amount of friends I made are countless, for those who say they’re strangers are wrong because when u first met your best friend they were a stranger u then formed an emotional and/or physical connection which then made them you’re best friend
There was a robber in my house in Mexico then with what I learned from halo and assasins creed I somewhat killed the robber bc of a law that states that when someone enters the house by force, we have the right to kill.
Parent walks in the room, JIMMY you've been playing for hours!
Mom I just got on
No I listened to a review of video games on pornhub so now I understand everything about it because those things desensitize you
MOM YOUR DUMB
OH YEAH HOW?
YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND GAMING!
OH YEAH, WELL YOU ONLY LIKE VIOLENT GAMES AND WILL PLAY THAT VIOLENT GAME CALLED WHAT? MINECRAFT? THAT SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING MADE BY THE DEVIL!!!
MOM GET THE F**K OUT OF MY ROOM YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT I LIKE AND WHAT IM INTERESTED IN
From 0 - 29 seconds in, the only and I mean ONLY reason parents think this is because of lying news media.
Every time there's a shooting, or a violent crime the media will talk about how video games may have convinced the attacker to do it and that it could convince others to do the same.
I swear the media is actually a bunch of cunts.
Sure that playing video games is waste of time and so does watching game of thrones if you're bad on time management. However, Comparing to other media, video games was so controversial that it has being attack from every side around the corner, and so far it was being attacked by paranoid parents, SJW, activist, goverment, NRA, Out of touch people, people without credibility, religious folks and more These anti-gamers will never ever understand video games, let alone enjoying it.
I love the Fact he mensions Destiny it's my favorite game and my mom approved it as a good game too but what she doesnt understand is When i have time to play games during the week 1 hour for a game such as destiny just isnt shit and she has this new idea of making my timefor playing (during the week) only an hour and she is starting a fight about it.... please pray for me (btw my psn is: JMBps) she is kind of anti gamer now...
school is just killing life and creativity.School is actually a waste of time, not games.Because nothing learned in school you use in life, when actually what you learn in games you may need or use in real life.Gmes=creativity, School=actually expired bullshit.
Games equal waste of time, well so does binge watching game of thrones, instead of working 6 or 8 hours why not simple work 18 hours of the day, honestly its because of Video games I had some goals and joy for some things, fallout 3 and new vegas make me want to travel to various places to see as well as have a joy for classical music, Doom tells me satanism is a bad idea and hell may or may not have a 4 star hotel, and have a joy Kiss and classical rock, because of video games I met people from different parts of the world, i met people that made me reconsider committing suicide, so really i see more god things out of video games than bad, especially that last part
Fallout new vegas and zelda breath of hte wild gives me joy in cooking, especially cooking up pork meat in a crock pot of BBQ sauce mmm delicious, but Zelda Breath of hte wild makes me hungry, Battlefield makes me have more appriacation for veterans living today since there are people who thing fighting another nation or distant terrorist organization is as simple as stabling papers. however using footage of wolfenstein for propaganda to say video games are bad because of this really can say "what the nazis did was a agreat thing"
Lmao I got Asian parents they all about studying Idk why I got good grades and I told them I'm good at this game and its my only free time after school after doing homework and they said read more books lmao feelsbadmen
My dad lies all day on the couch to watch TV. Perhaps maybe with some Lay's chips or some other snack.
*_And he has the fucking nerve to say_* "Maybe it's because you're always on that computer, and you should stop."
when something goes south.
Ok take me for an example.
I am 16 years old so I was born in 2002 when I was 4 years old I started playing games my firs console was an Atari Few years later I got a ps2 and I my life as a gamer started when I played crash of the Titans and I played like around 60-70 games on ps2 then is 6th grade I got my ps3 and at that point i still was a casual well until in med school I met a friend who introduced me to the world of dark souls and of course i sucked at it it took me 80hrs of gameplay to complete it and I played like at least 100 games on ps3 and now I got my ps4 and I play like at least 5hrs a day 9-12hrs on average and sometimes I even YOLO it and go 24hrs straight with my gf on weekends.
So look at me I get above average grades in highschool I have a great job a gf and why is that?
I'd say it's all thanks to gaming and my parents who supported me (sometimes)
Edit:sry for the long ass comment I found my self driven away and started telling the story of my life near the end so f**k it can't go back now 😂😂
My da kind of understands why I like games so he doesn't mind me playing them as long as my main focuses are on school and boxing (which they are btw) but my ma doesn't get it at all. I understand why though she's not mean or anything she just never tried video games and doesn't understand them so I think they scare her a little bit.
Parent: You’ve been on the computer all day! Go do something productive!
Me: I’ve spent the last 3 hours collecting resources and designing a well-rounded wood base in a survival game called ARK and rescuing players needing refuge.
Parent: I don’t care! It’s useless! Hehe.. look at all these funny videos I found on Facebook...
Parent: why do you watch gaming videos? They’re gonna make you violent!
Me: I’m watching Minecraft...
Parent: so? Now come help me with the remote the TV stopped for some reason and I’m missing so many touchdowns right now

This video shares some really good misconceptions that people often have about video games. Specifically the misconception that it "desensitizes kids to violence". Other media like movies, television, music, etc have the same effect and can sometimes even be worse then video games!
all games are art because if you took videos and pictures from video games now and showed them in the 80s and 90s people would be stunned saddened even moved by what is being said even in rather bland games like call of duty
i guess i got lucky on that but my mom and dad r gamers infact pro gamers they play games like CS:GO CODWWII so they know how important games r to me so guess what i got on my birthday :P yep i got a new gaming mouse cuz my old mouse got rekt :P while playing CS:GO happy gaming everyone
Some of these things I have heard my parents say,most from basic stuff.
But I have every argument with me winning to them.
I played the sims 3 and 4 and also SimCity and cities skylines,what do I do in these games,manage money and other things,stuff I’m not naturally good at,but I learn to be good at it.
Mairo Party And other Games by Nintendo have actually had me enjoy spending time with my family.
LBP(or little big planet) Roblox,And other multiplayer games have taught me co-operation and how to make friends,I’m naturally shy so this is a big hit for making me be outgoing.
