One World Pop Culture

JeromeASF

Deepak Chopra questions JeromeASF concerning the socio-cultural implications of video games and gaming. Regarding ADD and violent tendencies, Jerome shoots down claims of the negative impact of gaming. He states that gaming serves as an outlet and tool for these problems rather than a catalyst, and explains how he finds that educational gaming can help kids focus in the classroom. Jerome believes that action-packed adventures on the screen can offer a release that keeps kids away from enacting anything harmful in real life. When Deepak goes on to ask how video games effect gamers’ social literacy, Jerome shares how the online gaming communities he joined as a teenager taught him how to communicate more clearly and confidently in the real world. JeromeASF does not know exactly how video games are going to affect the evolution of mankind, but through his experience, shared both on YouTube, and in the game-worlds themselves, he believes that video gaming benefits people by teaching them how to interact with the world around them.
