A Bad Intro

Since video games gained popularity back in the 1970’s – 1980’s, after World War 2 and around the time of the Vietnam War, parents have always seen video games in a negative light; first because of what country was popularizing them, Japan, and also for how long their children would play them. This is also the time where the common sentiments among parents was that video games would rot your mind. Many adults of this era easily passed this form of entertainment off as a time waster that made their children violent. Video games, being so early in their development, were marketed as just entertainment but even now non-educational video games can have positive effects on a child’s cognitive development.
