Pro : Video Games

By Neal Elliott, Reporter

Video Games are I find to be more fun than board games. Video Games open up my imagination and board games fail to do so. There is also more variety that is offered. Where there are a limited amount of board games there are hundreds of thousands of video games to choose from.

New video games are made each year, each time with better quality and graphics. Board games on the other hand keep the same visual look and same papery, plastic feel.

Video games take the imagination and make it playable. Video games like Dead By Daylight and Tomb Raider offer a sense of adventure that cannot be found in board games.

Video games are unique in the fact that they give an experience like no other. Rather than play the same board game over and over I could play a video game and then immediately switch to another if I feel like it.

Video games allow me to see things in an extremely detailed and unique view. The detail to eye in video games is more interesting than a simple dice roll or card pull. There are an infinite amount of ways to play video games and experience them to their fullest extent.

Yeah, I could play a board game about monopolies or trying to find the clues to who the killer really is but I would much rather enjoy a game about exploration and adventure with an amazing, detailed interactive environment.

I love a good board game but they will never amount to the same amount of enjoyment that video games bring me. The difference between the two is huge. Video games are technologically created for the use and enjoyment of people. Board games are made for the same purpose but don’t have the same click to me that video games do. Some people say board games are good for your brain but the same can be said for video games. Video games can bring out more artistic and creative mindsets in people like myself that board games can never do.

By the end of a video game I am ready to meet the final conclusion. At the end of a board game, I am usually bored.
