industry has dramatically increased and it even altered the attitude of the old
generations, such as parents and elders. In the society of 2000, the video game

games become more educational and creative, video games enhance users’
social relationships and increase their confidence, and video games can improve
people’s emergent consciousness.

people not to give up. This proves public that game is a way to express
warmness and move instead of an “Internet Opium”.
