In Japan, where I live, many peoples believe that fames are important for adults as they are for children. However, I personally disagree with the point of view that games are as important for adults as they are for children.
First of all, it is waste of time for adults to play games in their private time. To give an example, there are a lot of important things for adults to do in their private time. When I was a freshman in current job, I had a lot of things to do such as studying material properties using in my job and going out with my colleague to make good relasionship. On a weekend, I had to study about material from 8 AM to 11AM, then I went on a picnic with my colleagues after that. Every weekend, because I had some schedules related my job or my colleagues, there is no time to play games in my private time. As the example above shows, it is waste of time for adults to play games in their private time.
In addition, games can not provide adults wiht any good relationship with other people. To give an example, when I was a freshman in current job describing above, sometimes, my colleague and I played games in my dormitory. At first, we enjoyed games, but gradually we became angry with each other because the results of games affected us. When I won a game, one of my colleague who lost became angry, and vise versa. After we completely became angry, we went to a park near my house. Then, we could refresh ourselves to strech our body and play catch a ball. So, playing games could not make better relasionship than doing otherthings. The experience clearly shows that games can not provide adults wiht any good relationship with other people.
In conclusion, I definitely disagree with the idea that games are as important for adults as they are for children.
