Ask Adam:
Episode 021: Are Video Games Good Or Bad For You?

Are video games bad for you? I certainly hope not cause we play video games every day. Adam’s 80,000 gamer score on Xbox Live should tell you how many video games he’s playing. In all seriousness though, the effects of video games on young people has been a concern since the early days of gaming. We’ve come a long way from Custer’s Revenge and Leisure Suit Larry. These days games like Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto are far more realistic. We examine how realism in video games may be affecting people, violent games versus educational come into play as well. And in this episode of the Ask Adam League, we get to the heart of the matter of how video games can hurt or help, violent or not.

I have graciously taken the time to allow you to see what greatness is. You'll not attain greatness yourself, but you can be sharpened against it by observing others as imperfect as yourself standing proud in your humility. Adam allows you to do yourself the favor of joining a community of lesser beings so that you might witness greatness in a way you'll never be stimulated with again.
