Will playing a game ruin your important next day?

Asked by Your_Majesty (8212points) September 20th, 2010

I don’t usually play game if it’s not my weekend or my day off but this time I feel that I have to keep playing game since I am reaching the climax part and the game is just too tempting to be delayed despite I realized that I will have a very challenging day tomorrow that require my strength and my mind,plus I’ve seen the statistic research where many people who play game will suffer the consequences of bad score for playing games than those who didn’t play game. I usually play about 2 – 4 hours in a day.

Huh? Well if a bad game affects you that bad that you’ll be sour about it until the next day, then maybe you shouldn’t play it until after this important day. :)
This isn’t something that would bother me though…

@thekoukoureport Dammit, I lost the game!

@Doctor_D Grand Theft Auto? That game rules. It is kind of addicting, too.

Depends on the game. If is a game that makes you think and broadens your horizen. It’s good for you. Go for it.

Well, my brother plays console games all the time but is always as sharp then as he is when he doesn’t play games (like at summer camp, etc). I’d say it really depends on who you are. If you discover through experimentation that you aren’t alert enough to perform your work-related tasks, then don’t play games except on weekends when you can afford to relax a little. If you are alert, then no problem! As far as I know there’s no medical research on the topic, but I’m no expert.

I don’t see how playing video games would cause issues like that, unless you played all night without much sleep. Think about how much tv many people watch in a day ..at least with video games your brain is working.
Other than all that, the only thing you might notice is eye strain if you are playing too long.
I could be biased though as I’m a gamer myself :)

(NOTE: There is also video game addiction but that is another topic altogether)

No, unless it’s so physically exhausting that I can’t do the work the next day.

@YARNLADY Yeah, like Wii Sports Resort – Table Tennis.

Play the game in moderation. Too much of a good thing is bad. Don’t stay up late playing the game. You need your rest so you can play your best!
