Visual Argument: Esport Validity

College Comp II Visual Argument

This picture demonstrates how dedicated sports fans look down upon and question esports.  The picture chosen was that of bullying, I then replaced all of the children’s heads with ‘real sports’ to show how they look down upon the one child that is an esports fan.  The number of children shows how traditional sports highly outnumber esports fans. The sports fans are excluding the esports fan from the group. “Stop trying already, esports will never be a real sport like our sports are.”  This is to show how some are extremely adamant when it comes to esports and are firm believers that it should never be a ‘real sport’. Overall, esports just need more time to build up in popularity and slowly form into a sport everyone will respect in the future.

You’re Too Young To Be Playing This Game

So my topic is video games and their influence on todays young people. Video games are a big part of todays youth culture. Everyone plays video games whether it be a mobile phone app or a dedicated console game. There is a rating system to help aid parents in deciding what is appropriate for their kids, but it seems that most parents ignore it. I think the reason is that they aren’t aware of how the system works. We need to increase awareness to better educate the parents, because it is ultimately up to them to guide their kids.Kids growing up playing adult themed games end up thinking and acting inappropriately. Most kids today curse. Little kids who arent even in their teens are speaking profanity. Part of the reason they do so is because they grew up in a world filled with cussing. Here is an article by William Usher. Most small children have or will play video games that are filled with violence and language. Parents need to monitor their children better.
