On August 29, the Gamer’s Day. While many companies and individuals used this celebration to show their passion for video games and share some moving stories, the Government of Mexico City decided to do the opposite, and pointed out negative elements of this medium. As a result, the public was not happy.

According to the official account of the Mexico City DIF on Twitter, excessive consumption of video games “can lead to isolation, sedentary lifestyle, obesity and other illnesses that are harmful to the health of the child or adolescent.” The page recommends not to buy more games and to carry out other activities to avoid these problems. Let us remember that in the past, the President of our country, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has attacked this form of entertainment to motivate the return to face-to-face classes.

For its part, the public decided to share different studies and experiences that show the opposite to what is mentioned in this post. This reveals once again that there is still a stigma towards video games. Hopefully this will change as more and more people demonstrate the positive side of the industry.

On related topics, it seems that Gran Turismo 7 and Ghostwire: Tokyo they have been delayed once again. Similarly, Norman Reedus talks about a new Death stranding.
