In that case the benefits of exercise and diet are fake because, when taken to extremes, they are harmful and potentially deadly. There can be benefits to something that also has potential risks associated.

Beyond that simple fact, peer reviewed research is far more reliable than your opinion, no matter how sure of it you may be.

the thing is, when you say there is benefit, it must show the fact and the prove it self, not only by researched that made by any researcher. while in here, i prove to you that the benefits it self is fake by showing the fact which is happening right now.

Your other points may be true, but that isn't the debate you started. You said the benefits of playing games are fake. Dave has just proven that there are benefits. There are certainly negatives as well, but you can't deny there are benefits.

basicly, i still believe that it is only an assumtion because we have to see the fact, that, the benefits that you mentioned just now is simply abolished by the harmness it self, for example, people who love playing video games, naturally, will be easy to feel unsatisfy which cause addiction towards the video games it self. why it is bad? because, they will become irrational for example, they will prioritize video games as number 1 compare the things that they must do, for example learnig, working so on so fort. in many schools, whether it is elem, junior or senior high school, we can see, the person who always got 1 rank is they who didn't play video games, basicly I take ranking as a parameter because it is proven. and even some of the players, make video games as their life, and unable to sosialize with other people. so where is the valid benefits?

In that case I will restrict my arguments to video games.

American psychologist did a meta-analysis of research into video games and found that playing games "may strengthen a range of cognitive skills such as spatial navigation, reasoning, memory and perception. " Different types of games provide different benefits but shooters like COD, stating that "A 2013 meta-analysis found that playing shooter video games improved a player's capacity to think about objects in three dimensions just as well as academic courses designed to enhance these same skills."

Psychology today also published an article outlining findings about the benefits of video games, specifically the "long-lasting positive effects of video games on basic mental processes- such as perception, attention, memory, and decision making"

basicly, the game in here is video games for example, PS1234 or online games so on, no matter single or multiplayer games.

It would depend on the game. Video games have been shown to improve response speed and coordination as well as assist in actions that are not directly related to the hand movement (othroscopic surgery for example). Games like hockey and tennis improve physical fitness and hand-eye coordination as well as the social benefits associated with team sports. Chess and other board games aid in tactical and logical thought, and party games like charades build social connections while facilitating creative thought.

In children, a great deal of learning is done through games and playing. They mimic adult behavior starting with words and simple gestures like waving as infants and more complex behaviours as they grow.

Could you define what kind of game you meant to criticize so that responses can be a bit more focused?
