The key aspect in this debate is whether or not teens should play violent video games or RPG 's. Some people are distracted by the thought of violence in the game. Then out of spite, think that it 's mostly all about violence and no good can come out of it. How one-sided can this be?

Thus, to summarize teens should be able to play violent/action video games and RPG 's, that it helps your vision, your ability to strategize, help in psychological manners, and won 't turn you into a mass shooter. Logically speaking, according to the evidence I have provided you that action video games have affected your child’s future, a good effect. Like in every case, extreme of anything is wrong and hence a balance is required. With that balance in place life can be better enjoyed and be better prepared.
