This is an article from, a new series for children. The Conversation is asking kids to send in questions theyБd like an expert to answer. All questions are welcome Б serious, weird or wacky! I want to know why adults think video games are bad because the adults around my neighbourhood are ANNOYING me by saying БREAD A BOOK! NO VIDEO GAMESБ. Why canБt they say БitБs time to play video games nowБ? Б Bo, aged 9, Melbourne. Parents and children can have different ideas when it comes to video games. Children like video games because they are fun and because they can be challenging. You have to solve problems, work out the best moves for your character, and decide how to use your equipment and supplies in the best possible way. Making all these decisions can be exciting. Parents want to make sure that their children are safe and healthy. Because of this, they notice different things about video games. Many worry that playing video games might have a bad effect on the way their child behaves. For example, if a video game has lots of fighting in it, they worry that playing it will encourage their child to be violent. They are concerned that their child might always choose to play a video game instead of playing outside and getting exercise. Even though you sit still when you read a book, they know that kids can develop good reading skills and learn a lot. Many adults arenБt so sure that kids can learn anything educational from video games. Sometimes adults think that spending too much time with animated characters is unhealthy for kids. They know itБs important for kids to spend time with БrealБ people and learn good social skills needed for the real world. If you do play video games, make sure there are a range of game types in your collection. What do experts say?


Experts think playing video games can have good and bad effects on kids. shows that there are lots of benefits. One good thing is the video games that children play today often encourage them to work in teams, cooperate, and to help each other. This is because games today are often designed for multiple players, not like
that were mostly designed for one player. Video games have changed a lot since your parents were kids. These ads for old video games show just how much game design has changed. However, children who are obsessed with video games and play them for a long time can get really competitive and can often try to win at all costs. Experts arenБt sure yet, but they have real that this might lead to kids acting like this in real life too. One thing you also might like to know is that kids who regularly play video games often get in maths, science, and reading tests. This is because games require players to solve puzzles. You wonБt get higher marks playing any video games, just those that require the player to solve these kinds of puzzles. ItБs important for kids to think about what types of games they pick. Make sure all of your games arenБt fighting games. Instead, choose more games where you need to solve puzzles. These are fun and can also help with your schoolwork. Your parents will be much happier about that! Think about whether the fighting games you play are affecting how you play with your friends in real life. Only you will know the answer. , Also, think about whether the fighting games you play are affecting how you play with your friends in real life. Only you will really know if they are having a bad effect. If they are, you might want to change the games you play. Why not ask your parents to play a problem-solving video game with you?


This will help your parents see that video games are not all bad. ItБs also important that kids and adults donБt. That means kids not spending all their time on technology, and parents not always checking their phone and screens. What we want to aim for is adults and kids who can spend some of their time on their screens, but also enjoying other kinds of interests and spending time with family and friends.

I think it's more to do with the difference and popularity between Superman and Batman. Superman defines a PERFECT Hero and is (or was) the kind of hero that defined American culture. Batman is a hero with flaws, and consequently, more human as a result. The thing is, for all of our own flaws, we empathize with others who are also flawed. This is most likely why Stockholm Syndrome even exists, because we inherently desire to understand our fellow people and accept them for who and what they are. A PERFECT Hero like Superman is simply "too good". So much so, that Superman is perceived as boring as a result. We always know Superman will win, we know everything about him and he's about as one dimensional as heroes come. Conversely, Batman is not perfect, but a mortal man scarred by his past, trying to make a difference in a world gone mad.


He's pretty much a tragic hero, and people love that, because he's flawed but he strives to change the world in the face of such an insurmountable task. Just like people like the underdog, people like the man (or woman) who tries to swim against the tide, who tries to fight the storm, who tries to do the seemingly impossible; and in that way, it becomes a metaphor for the struggle of life, because no matter how shit it gets, you have to pick yourself up, and carry on. That's the mark of a hero in many people's eyes, and just like how heroes can be flawed, even more so are villains. Sometimes they're geniuses, other times they're just insane, but even madmen have rhyme and reason amidst their own insanity. Villains can be heroes and vice versa, the ever-popular morally grey ethics that are pervasive throughout culture are just a visually identifiable sign of the general change in people's opinion and psychology over time. The times of it being all about "good guys" and "bad guys" is nearly over, because as wars and injustice persist to this very day and the horrors are there for everyone to see, people are starting to see the world differently, as we're all just people trying to get by. So, it's societal, cultural and, at times, just escapist sadism or curiosity, but choosing villains will always be popular, and no matter what, characters like Superman will die out, because most people do not like the PERFECT, square-jawed, American Ideal Hero anymore. He's boring, tasteless and entirely from the realms of fantasy, with no traits that any mortal can relate to. That's probably why over the years people have tried to write so many flaws into Superman's character, but it's a fruitless endeavour. He'll always be SUPERman, and thus, PERFECT! -___________________-
