Easy, medium and strong gaming
How do researchers actually find out when gaming is good or bad? To do this, they often divide children into different groups. It measures how long children sit in front of the PC or the console every day and then examines the impact this has on their lives. In a new study by the University of Oxford, children were divided into three groups:
Easy gaming: You play less than an hour a day
Oxford researchers have found that light gaming has benefits for children’s lives. These are all that we have listed above for you. Computer games can be good if you play less than an hour a day.
Medium gaming: You play between one and three hours a day
If you play more, it has no good but also no bad consequences in everyday life. So if you gamble between one and three hours a day and your parents don’t like it, you cannot defend yourself with the advantages mentioned above. Because they only apply if you play less than an hour a day.
Strong gaming: You play more than three hours a day
However, the Oxford study also found that more than three hours of gaming a day had a bad impact on children’s lives. For example, you are less satisfied with your life and more unfriendly. In addition, there is a greater risk of neglecting other things such as sports, music or friends.
Gambling is like chocolate

Incidentally, this applies not only to the PC and console, but also to the smartphone and the television. To be happy in life, you just need a break from all the screens.
