Video Game Social Media Project

I am taking a Social Media course in this semester of school and we had to do a project. I chose the topic of video games since it is a BIG passion of mine! I noticed sometimes when you say you are a gamer to people they might think of you in a negative way or treat your wrongly or have a negative idea about it (it’s just been my experience if you all have different experiences I apologize and respect it). I wanted to change this because I truly feel video games aren’t as bad as people say they are. Like with everything video games comes with their pros and cons.

A big pro that hasn’t only been proven statistically but also personally is that video games helps reduce mental illness (depression, stress, etc.). In a study that was conducted, as stated by the Huffington Post, it was shown that video games helped 44% of teenagers to be cured of their depression/mental illness, and not only that but 26 of them said that they did not feel depressed when playing. I personally know this to be true because my mother (though she’s not a teen) has been playing video games for a while and it improves her depression and stress a good bit. Not only that but it gives me and my mother (and other family) something to bond over and stay closer to each other. I love that because not only that but it also gives us a way to spend time together not only with my mom but also with my family and it’s just nice!

So if any of you non-gamers are reading this or gamers too I would love if you take a glance and play some of my favorite games that I love playing! Also please feel free to give me some recommendations I would love to see/hear and possibly play what your playing! Don’t be shy either if you have any comments on my project (but I do ask to please be respectful!!).

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
