Throughout the class we have looked at how video games and computer games can be used for entertainment and as an educational tool. We have talked about connecting with games and our frustrations with some games. Some people have brought up how media is portraying video games in a negative light, now lets talk about how video games can bring a family together and be a positive tool instead of a negative one.
Most video games have a mulitplayer option, allowing for people to play and enjoy the games together. Video games such as Guitar Hero, Wii Sports, and others like these games, are not the violent games that the media potrays as a bad thing. These are the video games that are not talked about often and are used as a game that interests all ages and brings family and friends together.
