Pro: they are good entertainment for children who are sick or in the hospital. Con: most parents believe that ALL video games are violent and most children cannot play any of them (not even mario) Pro: some games are productive and creative (for example: minecraft) con: some are addicting and ruin peoples lives.
pros include better hand eye coordination improve mood for those of us with anti-social behavior Cons none. anyone who says its a waste of time either doesnt play or has nothing to to do but condemn other for enjoying their hobbies to you i say grow up high school is a long time ago people dont need to feel bad about how they spend their time. yes indulging a hobby 24/7 isnt health for anyone but not everyone can build birdhouses or go mountain biking or want to. end thought: cons to having hobbies: not getting work done
Pros: They can be fun; a great way to kill some time. Actually one of the better ways to relieve any stress you might have. (Careful though, some games do increase your stress; usually when you start losing)
Cons: They can be time/life consuming if you're not careful.
Pros: they take you away from boring everyday life. You can do things that you aren't supposed to be doing, or things you wanted to do but were to scared or worried that you couldn't. You forget who you are and what you're doing in real life. It's great!
