When I was in middle school/junior high i spend nearly all day playing Final Fantasy VII and before I knew it, I was failing every single one of my classes and all because of this masterpiece of a game that revolutionized Role Playing Games. Was it worth it? Yes, it actually was. The administration messed up on my GPA and I ended up passing with exactly a 2.00. =] Hurray!

Video or computer games don't really effect my grade, because I usually study and do my homework before I go on the computer or play video games. I usually get one B+ and the rest is A's. I guess I'm kind of an average student. I'm sometimes not satisfied when I get a B on my report card.

I guess it's my turn to make a second contribution

I don't see how people can fail classes as a cause of playing video games. What I mean is how people can fail because of video games while STRIVING to pass simultaneously (if that is the case with some of you). Its not really hard and I have a severe distraction problem (I'm beginning to suspect I have ADD lol). All I do is just focus strictly (DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT GAMES) when I am in class, ask questions that I did not understand or that I missed, get help when I needed, and do all of the work handed to me. I always play first and then do homework/study afterwards and I'm an above average student. It's not that hard. But I believe the main problem why people DO FAIL is because of an epidemic called LAZINESS. I know LOTS of people who are smart and just don't take anything seriously, but if they did try then they would achieve as good as grades as me or even better. I myself am lazy but when it comes to my obligations, I always take care of them. Just spare some energy people. If I can obtain fairly good grades with a great distraction problem any average/below average thinker can.

that hurt.


i got better grades when i was stuck to ff8 rather then stuck to girls in school no expression video games keep us out of trouble, as we think about playin the games in school we dont think about boobs and the likes, therefore our attention has strayed but not far enough to subliminally take the education in
