Approximately 90% of children in the United States play video games, and more than 90% of those games involve mature content that often includes violence (Park, 2014).

The infographic gives small little tidbits of information that vary from percentage of female gamers, to popular consoles, to the percentage of young people being turned away from trying to purchase a game that’s not suitable for them. The author uses an infographic as the main tool to relay the information given in it to help the audience get through all the information with some pictures here and there as to not bombard the audience with just words. The statistic that “40% of all gamers are female” (How Much Do You Know About Video Games) has a picture of a female sitting on a couch with a game controller looking like she’s actively engaged in what she’s playing.

One of the conclusions in the article was that the fast pace exciting game makes school work seem very dull and boring. This is a strong view point as it asks whether playing video games is like a drug that excites the player, resulting in the player playing the game for longer, reducing their interaction within school classes.
