Sometimes a video game is like a drug: the more you play it, the more you become addicted and influenced to enforce violent and aggressive behavior.. President Obama has been encouraging parents to set limits to children's time spent on the screen. He strongly stated, "I want children to be stuck to something that teaches people things other then blowing things up." Recent studies show that nearly two-thirds of people in America now consume their time playing video games. Although it may help people prepare for real life situations, they may not be the best choice. People need to use more realistic experience to relate to these situations.
