Is it okay for kids to play computer games? Which computer games, which kids? Is it okay for five year olds to play Rapelay? No. No it's not. Is it okay for kids from five to ten to play Call of Juarez? As long as they continue to hold active social lives then yes, it is.

Your terms are very general, which renders the results effectively meaningless.

I will try to answer your questions, any games that are age appropriate, kids under 17, and yes they are general, and you bring up some good points, I wish I was a little more specific. Von II if you’re asking me if I spam, this is really part of my final project.

Well, then start again. :p

What age, what game, how much,...? I suggest you make a new poll. You can make one in the forum directly, then there will most likely be more users answering it too.

If these are educating games, yes.

If you mean GTA IV, no. Absolutely no. This for education and ... "social life".

For their health, no, I don't think it's really good. It's already hazardous for us, so it'll only be worse for them, and besides, they'll get enslaved real fast...

You can see that i eddited my first post, the answers are there. Well I put this poll on more than one site and to have the poll in one place makes it easier for me to numbers at a glance.

to answer your question age appropriate. I can only do one question for this project, and I can't (not allowed to) change it.

So wait, what's the qualified question? Is the question "Is it ok for kids under 17 to play games rated under M?" If so, then absolutely. If the question regards kids under 17 playing M games, then it depends on the kid and the game.

Should 10 year olds play CoD? No. In fact I don't think anyone should play CoD, but w/e.

All kids should be able to play video games, but only age appropriate ones.

Yes children should be allowed to play video games. It improves hand to eye co-ordination, and they have to 'think' more playing a game vs watching TV.
