Why Kids Love Video Games

Aug 5, 2008
There are various reasons why kids these days love video games. One of these reasons would be the employment of comical characters and vibrant colors which undeniably looks attractive to the young ones. You might have also observed how they would flock in front of the monitor and laugh excitedly as if they are watching an early cartoon morning show every time they see a video game displayed on screen. And for them, knowing that you can control these characters through a game controller pad is even more exciting. That is why every time you turn on your game console they go crazy and tend to grab the controller from your hand. You can not blame them for reacting this way. As kids, it is part of their nature to be playful. When they have the controller on their little hands, they imagine themselves playing with the characters on screen.

A child is naturally curious. It is through playing that he discovers and learns how the world reacts when introduced with certain stimuli. The video games offer him an area to discover all these things. That is why parents should also be careful in choosing the right games for their children. But since children have a natural attraction to games, parents can be able to use video games to educate their children. In fact there are a lot of informative video games out there which will help the young kids to have fun and learn at the same time.

Although kids are not capable of doing things on their own yet, their mind is basically oozing with creativity. They tend to find and do things that their little bodies can handle just to be able to express themselves. Video games and the kid's creativity and active imagination are coherent and complementary with each other. The video game serves as an outlet for the child's creative side.

One more reason why kids love video games is that they love to bond with us. They feel that if they get involve in such activity, they are being one with us. In other words, they just wanted to belong and to tell us that they want to play a game and have fun with us. It does not matter if they lose or win the game as long as the people around him is also having fun, that is what really matters to him.
