Why do video games garner so much complaints and do these complaints mean anything

Video games have been a part of young children’s lives everywhere for the better part of half a century however with every passing year parents of these children have been making noise that games are doing more and more harm rather than good.

The yearly earnings and profit of both Nintendo and UbiSoft in a year can be in the staggering billion-dollar mark. In 2016 Ubisoft made an earning of 1.567 billion while in 2018 Nintendo had revenue of whopping 9.66 billion.

In these awareness campaigns, players are going to earn points by saving lives instead of taking them, which goes against the gameplay of an online multiplayer shooter game, and the response is very high.
