There have been numerous studies performed to demonstrate the connection between video game addiction and dopamine overload. Playing video games stimulates the brain regions, which control vision and movement. It is equivalent to playing, for example, a street fighter game, and the better you get, the faster you play. Dopamine is circulated in the brain due to overstimulation.

This process can lead to other parts of the brain being underdeveloped, such as behavior, emotion, and learning in the long run. That being said, video games help with enhanced visual perception and improved capability to handle many different things at a time.

I think it all depends on how long you play each day and whether or not playing the video game is disrupting your life. If you can play the game and still maintain your daily activities and relationships, and if you are not playing the game all day long, it is okay to play every day.

The correct answer to this question is Yes. Though video games can be a very entertaining hobby to past time by, playing too much of it can have detrimental impacts on the body. One of the effects that playing video games too much can have on the body is that the sensory system will be overstimulated.

The system will only feel stable when the games are being played. Then, when the games aren't being played, the sensory system feels deprived, which will lead to irritability. Another issue with playing games too much is that it can cause sleep deprivation because the brain is unable to rest, even after the game is turned off.

Too much of everything will always be bad for the body. Even too much of a good thing is bad so it is not surprising that playing too much video games can also be bad for you. Moderate playing can be good for the brain as it allows the body to figure out some clues better and solve real-life problems in an easier manner.

Too much video game playing can lead to some health problems. Some people go by without sleep for days just because of playing. When you start to neglect your body because of playing video games, that is when you will know that it is bad for you.
