We can't deny that videogames are part of our everyday, even in many cases where there is people who feels better playing than in real life, that is why we must consider their ethics and morals, because there are lovers and haters.


The biggest ethical problem creators tend to find while developing a videogame is the purpose of why are they doing it, Would it be ethic creating a game with extreme violence without integrating any consequences, in order to gain a great amount of money?

Of course with the freedom of speech you are allowed to create this kinds of games, but there exists the moral responsibility which shall be noted by everyone who is interested on it: The game developers, who think about the morality of the matter; the government who makes the laws to avoid the easy access to this king of content; the sellers who won't give this kind of games to kids; and of course their parents who must avoid buying this sort of content to their children.

Why are there retractors to videogames?

  • There are no laws that ban the sale of this kind of games to children
  • Some studies confirm that a continuous use of videogame can decrease the marks in the school. However it is also true that it is not 100% fault of the videogames, but also the TV, the mobile phone, Social Networks, or internet, among others.
  • Getting into the videogame can sometime mean a total immersion in the fictional world created by the developer, where in many cases, users end up having a total disconexion from the real world.
  • Many times videogames help to develop a certain physical inactivity. However there are many games that try to fight among this problem such as the ones you can find in the Wii, or in the Playstation with the Move.
