    This is absolutely true. Kids are the most vulnerable ones to gaming effects because they are too innocent to understand the difference between fiction and real life. They assume such gaming characters are even real somewhere in the world and they believe in them. This impacts on their psychological behavior in a very big way. 

    When I was a child, I was not allowed to play video games. But when father bought a PC he could not stop me from playing games because there were a coup,e of inbuilt games. It is difficult to stop kids from playing games, however, there should be some sort of parental control.

    Too much of everything is bad. This is something that everyone is very familiar with. When go across the line with a certain thing that you do, you will definitely suffer from the consequences of your actions. 

    That's true. One of the reasons why you should avoid energy drinks is they are very addictive. If you start drinking, soon you will find yourself drinking in access quantities. water is the best drink for the body. It not only hydrates your body but also cleanses and detoxifies your inner body.

    Most of us didn't know what purpose it served in the first place and most people wouldn't want to use a platform that is inferior to FB in terms of features.

    Since a lot of people were already using Facebook and they did not find G+ unique. Therefore, they never user G+. However, G+ was good for marketers because it was Google's product.

    I don't have a smart TV either because I hardly even watch TV anymore. I mean, I only paid for the sports channels and nothing else and I only have it for when my friends come over and we watch some football(soccer).

    I also do not watch TV much. I watch TV only during live tournaments like FIFA world cup or ICC World Cup. Sometimes I also watch movies, especially when it is being premiered.

    I have expected this to happen a long time ago because Google+ seems to be a dying phase of the Google community handle. 

    Just like yahoo messenger was scraped off and MySpace as well, now it's time for Google+  to join the cue. 

    Even though Google Plus had all the elements of facebook, it could never beat facebook, it was not even close to facebook. maybe G+ was not promoted as much as it should have been promoted. 

  6. I voted for earphone and looks like I am the only person who has voted for earphones until now. I do not have an exact reason why I prefer earphones,  however, I have been using earphones for a long time and I am very comfortable with earphones.

    Same opinion here, it will be ridiculous for an adult to be affected by Videogames, but for kids yes videogames can harm their personalities if there is no limit for gaming, for example my cousins will freakout if they cannot play videogames after school or if they are denied access to tablets or phones, their performance on school is also very poor since they spent most of their time gaming or on the internet, thats bad parenting.

    As kid I also threw tantrums if I wasnt allowed to play videogames, but my parents where strict which was good. Also my mom threw my N64 through the balcony one time so from that day on I learned to behave myself.

    I have seen kids imitating a fight after playing fighting games.  Kids cannot differentiate between facts and fictions, illusion and reality, therefore, video games can easily harm them if these games are violent. Some adults might also get affected, however, these are basically the people who have something wrong in their brain.

    Hell, even drink too much water can kill you and that's a fact. In life, everything is about balance.

    Here we are talking about drinking in moderation. We are not talking about drinking too much. When you take something in excess, it will always have an adverse effect.

  9. Generally speaking, I do not like to pay for games because I believe money can be put for better usage. having said that I have also bought a couple of games. Since I do not like to spend money on games, I always look for free offers and free games. I will check this out and see if the game is worth trying. Thank you for sharing.

    I don't see anything wrong with taking energy drinks when playing games. In fact, if you are a heavy gamer who can go for long periods of time without taking some time off, those energy drinks will be very helpful. My favorite energy drink is red bull or power horse. 

    I think energy drinks can be good as long as you are taking in moderation. If you are tired, you can boost up your energy level instantly by drinking energy drinks. If you are playing for long hours and have not eaten anything energy drinks can be good. However, drinking can after can will harm your health.

    My problem is that when I get that hooked up playing, even when I'm very aware that I'm getting tired, I still can't easily stop playing especially when I have missed playing the game for a while. 

    The best way for me to prevent this from happening is not to play at night. 

    Yes, some games are so addictive that you cannot stop playing no matter how long you have been playing. If you start playing in the evening, you can easily forget about the time and you will be playing in the odd hours of the night. If you feel sleepy, it means you are not enjoying the game properly. 

  12. I do have Google + place and I was very active on a couple of gaming communities on Google +. However, I was not using Google + for a long time and shutting down of Google + will not have any effect on me and my social media activity. Even though shutting of Google + was announced in December, I suspected this a long time ago as Google + did not have too many loyal users.

  13. When a game frustrates me, I just stop playing the game. Sometimes I go extreme and uninstall the game. When I was playing Candy Crush, I just loved the game. I was like playing 5-6 hours in a day. Then one day I stuck on a certain level. No matter what I could not clear the level. Then one day I just uninstalled the game.

  14. I am not a video content creator and I have never created any kind of videos. However, I have always wanted to create video through screen recording or shooting. I will take the recommendations from the users. I might first try with something that is free and might move to a paid program. 

  15. When I was a kid, the only way to play games was by visiting game shops. However, I was not allowed to play games, my father was against playing games. When father bought a PC, he allowed me to play a couple of games, however, these games were not like the ones we see these days. I started playing games when I had my first smartphone. That was when I was in the college.

  16. I play a game for fun, however, we never know when the fun part becomes an addiction. When I was introduced to candy crush, I started playing for fun, however, soon it became an addiction. Sometimes I was playing the game for straight 6 hours. Playing too much killed my phone battery and I had to uninstall the game, in order to avoid going back to the game.

  17. Minecraft was the last game I played. In fact, minecraft is the only game I am playing these days. I spent around two hours playing Minecraft last Saturday. I do not play games every day, generally, I play only at the weekends. However, when I am bored, I also play during the weekdays.

  18. gaming or no gaming, I do not drink energy drinks. These energy drinks have nothing except calories. I always avoid putting extra calories inside my body. I drink coffee or fruit juice though. Coffee helps me to stay focused and juice helps me to hydrate my body all the while giving me nutrition.
