4.0 Future
developments & their consequences

The further development of games in future will no doubt have a
massive impact on the teenagers because most of the currently developed games
can only be played while sitting in chair and staring at the screen but the future
games will be developed in such a way that the physical activity of the gamers
will be mandatory and so the gameplay hours will be minimized and the healthy
activities will be maximized and by this way such kind of games will
have a positive effect on the health of teenagers, But there can be
consequences of having too much activity which can cause many other issues.

 

5.0 Conclusion

This report has
identified various types of effects on the teenagers where some are primarily affecting
them in a positive way and vice versa. But it cannot be said which teenager
will adopt what kind of effect because it solely depends on the factors such as
age, maturity and supervision etc.…. Although online games have proved to be
useful in physical activities and as well as teaching activities but we cannot
ignore the fact that it has also proved to be fatal for mental and physical
health if used excessively and not under supervision.
