The Cost of Computer Games

There are many people that are concerned about the costs of computer games, not just the financial costs but other costs as well.

The financial costs can be really high. If you purchase a games console and then pay for every game then it can really add up. There are also games for the PC that can be expensive as well plus apps for mobile devices which you may have to buy and then pay for additions to games such as lives which can also add up very quickly. However, there are free games for PCs and mobile devices which will cost you nothing and so it is well worth considering these. These games can be equally as good as the games that you pay for but obviously there is no financial loss. These are also good because they are no risk. If you buy a game and then do not like it, you will find that this will be a big loss of the money. However, if you play a free game then there is no risk as you have lost no money if you decide that you do not want to pay cinderella games or barbie games.

As well as financial costs, some people might consider that games cost a lot of time. Some think that they are a waste of time and therefore playing them costs a lot. However, other people do not agree with this. It can depend on the extent to which the games are being played. If they are being played at the detriment to other useful things such as work or study, then this can be understood. If the person gets addicted to the game, or can't feel good unless they are playing, then this could be a problem. However, if they are just being played in a person's leisure time, then they could be a good source of entertainment in the same way that people watch the television or go to the cinema or play train games.

Some people worry more about health risks of computer games. They feel that people tend to be sitting down too much doing them and should be getting more exercise. It is true that people need to get a certain amount of exercise each day and that is linked with their health. However, if a person gets a good amount of exercise then playing some computer games is unlikely to be very harmful, and they could even be played at a standing or walking desk. Some people also wonder about health risks of radiation from computers and to eyesight but these have not been proven.

Some people also feel that playing computer games is not good for the brain. There could be things that people could be doing which would expand their knowledge more probably or help them to understand new things. However, there is also something to be said for relaxation time and it is a good idea to find ways to do this which might include computer games.
