When a teen plays video games in small doses it is easyer for them to get addicted say for 30 minuets a day. But if they play longer studies show that none become addicted because they have been satisfied. There was a studie of teenagers that played video games and ones that didn’t the ones that didn’t 47% of them became addicted to other thing as they aged etc drugs and alcohol. But the ones that played a lot only 7% we’re addicted to things later in life. This proves that it is better to play a lot of video games than a little.


All of the video games in the Super Mario Bros. series with the exception of Super Mario Bros. 2 have some sort of time limit.[1] These limits usually start large and are used to keep players moving instead of waiting for enemies to fall down pits.[1] Faster music appears when the time limit is about to be breached.[1] Any amount of time left over is multiplied by a certain amount and added into the overall score.[1] Time limits also appear in video games like Bébé's Kids[2] and Timecop, both for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Other games that have time limits for various systems include: Mario Party (to determine when a minigame ends), Street Fighter V (to show how much time remains in a round), and Mario Kart 8 (to show how much time is left until a race or battle starts).[3] A rare example of a time limit system that counts forwards instead of backwards is in Bio Senshi Dan: Increaser to no Tatakai. The more time players take to solve the level, the more powerful the end-level boss becomes.[4]

Many video games use a time limit feature, with console systems ranging from the Intellivision to the PlayStation 4.[3] A time limit can have several aliases associated with it: countdown timer (used mostly for continues), race timer (appearing in various racing games to show how much time the player has raced around the track), minigame timer (appearing in various minigames), round timer (appearing in fighting games), mission timer (used in action games where players have to escape from a fatal situation), sports timer (appears in sports games like basketball and American football), and pre-race countdown timer (appears in most racing games to signal the start of the race).[3]

Many recent multiplayer video games (such as Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3) involve some form of a time limit on its online servers. Usually, each game is given a ten- to twenty-minute time limit. For many games, a certain score by one team will end the game, but otherwise, whichever team holds the lead at the expiration of the time limit is declared the winner.
