The age of technological advancement has led to the rapid development of new media. Among them, video games have both positive and negative effects on children’s growth and development. Research shows that: playing video games has a positive bearing on the basic mental processes such as decision-making, perception, memory, and attention; by inculcating some idea development skills into the little minds, video games make children’s thinking ability more acute; in cognitive development, video games facilitate the social development of children and avert risks such as stress and depression; in cooperative model of video games, children can understand the value of cooperation in the process of growing up, so as to achieve better results. However, the longer the time children spend playing games, the poorer they become in school; video games will also lower children’s attainment of information, promote children’s violence, antisocial behavior and social isolation. In a word, it has been proven that video games contribute to the positive development of children through the inculcation of values such as resilience and positive competition. These games have also taught children the value of teamwork and cooperation, which are important skills in child development. At the same time, video games also promote violence, reduce professional social behavior, and even cause poor performance in school. It is in this context that video games should be rationally evaluated.
