Some of them are so much addicted that they can spend in front of computer long hours each day. They play browser games, skill games and other simple games that can be find online, but also more complicated with fable and challenging riddles. Let’s analyze the ‘gaming style’ of several famous people:
1) Gwyneth Paltrow – well known American singer and actress. As she said some time ago in interview to New York Times, playing games was not her big passion.

2) Arnold Schwarzenegger – former Governor of California and ex-actor. Before, a fierce opponent of gaming, now declares that appreciates skill games, mostly a virtual golf.

Secondly, spending too much time sitiing in front of computer can lead to sedentary life. No physical activity can’t give development. Instead of playing on playground with other children or playing basketball they sit and play basketball online. It isn’t even a small substitute for physical activity. Lack of exercise can lead to problems with spine, obesity and other health problems.
