Sports Against eSports: The Advantages and Disadvantages for Children
Every parent all around the world always feel that playing sports is more better than playing video games for their kids.
The only problem is that in this current generation, most kids all over the world would more than likely be more happier to play video games instead of doing traditional sports.
Of course as a parent, you would definitely want your kids to get out and play outside once in a while as well, to not only stop them from spending too much time in their virtual world but to also let them get out of the house and make them spend time doing traditional sports.
However, in this current modernized day and age, this is kind of no longer necessary, due to technology and some of the most modern games being developed as well.
Which is why in this very article, we will try to provide you with some of the most amazing advantages as well as the disadvantages in terms of sports vs eSports.
The first amazing advantage about sports and esports is that they are definitely highly active activity, most especially for our growing kids.
Though there may seem to be a lot of different parents all over the globe whom would try to argue that esports does not have any form of physical activity associated on its playing field, it is no longer accurate, mostly because of the fact that in this present day and age, we now have video game systems that would need the players to use certain level of movement in order for them to properly play the games.
This fact is majorly supported in this present day due to the fact that we now have virtual reality gaming systems that would need your own body to do certain body movements for your gaming avatar to start producing movements as well.
The only disadvantage about eSports is that they are usually done inside instead of outside, which is why playing sports is sometimes more beneficial to kids.
Though there is indeed some games that would require your kids to go outside in order for them to properly play the video game, your kids will still be able to find a way for them to play them inside anyway.
Another advantage about sports and esports is that they are now both social activities as well, due to the fact that esports have a very active online community that would allow kids to socialize with their peers and friends through their video game systems.
A very bad disadvantage about traditional sports is that they are highly dangerous for kids, due to the fact that most traditional sports are contact sports, and you would never be too sure whether they will suffer an injury or not.
The esports meanwhile is highly safe, due to the fact that players will be making use of gaming avatars instead of their bodies, thus there are no real physical contact happening.
