“Before, I liked playing online games, but now I rarely playthem because of my work. I can say that playing online games is good since it makes me flexible and easy-going; moreover, it can strengthen my brain by thinking a lot. I can also build my network by playing online game with others. However, online game also has bad effects. Onthe exam day for my high school diploma, I still played this game without caring much about the exam. Luckily, I still passed. I think online gamescan be good or bad depending on the players themselves; it is not a problem in itself, the problem is the player. ”

Therefore, there is no bad effect for me, because I can manage and control my time with it.”

“Online gaming has both good and bad consequences for me. Online game makes me feel modern in the youth society, and intelligence and pleasure when I am alone. Sometimes it is also bad, because I waste a lot of time on it rather than my study. Moreover, onlinegame badly affects health and eyesight. Thus, online game is not good and not bad; it depends on the player.”

“I am a player of online games, but I think that it is bad as I have to spend time and money on it without really getting anything. In fact, online gaming needs a modern phone connection to support it, and computer needs internet system. Therefore, it seems like wasting my money. It also affects my eyes and health because I spend so much time playing it. However, I still play it in my leisure time.”

Furthermore, online games can make me intelligent; I can be flexible for everything. The bad point of online gamesthe affect on my health, but it is not a problem to me problem since advantages is more than disadvantages.”
