Hi MakaKun,
The article refers to 'active video games' like the ones where you do a sport or dance. These video games are probably better for you than just sitting on the sofa. 
What type of games do you play? 
Best wishes, Jo.

Well nowadays all of most of the kids not only teenagers uses videogames so for them it is good to keep feed on them, but their mother of father are not in accordance because they pass all the time there and they don't socializing.

First of all, i think that video games are a good way of keep fit and in an other way it isn't. It is because i think that the video games sometimes have games that can help your mind and they are some of them that you have to stand up in front of the tv or video game and do what the game is asking you to do.

In addition, some people think that the video games are bad for us because we don' t socialize and we don't do what other guys do, play football on streets, or talk with friends, etc. and that is why i can also think that they are bad and don't keep fit.

To sum up, i believe that video games are so so, because they are a good way to keep fit doing exercise in your house. But you can't do exercises with friends.

Hi! I thought you wrote a good essay. Well done :) 

I agree that most kids and teenagers play games nowadays, especially on their phones. How about you? Do you play video games? If you do, what sort of games do you like?

Hi LearnEnglish Team,
I've got a little question to ask you. Is it correct to ask 'What do you doing?" Or should it always be "What are you doing?". I heard it in a TV show.
Thanks, Pest

Hi PestR,
Thanks for your question. No, it's not correct. What are you doing? is present continuous, and we use the verb be to form present continuous phrases. Have a look at this Grammar snack on the present continuous to revise and practise this structure.
Best wishes,
Joanna (LearnEnglishTeens team)

No, I don't think video games are good way to keep fit. Maybe they are fun etc, but doing exercise every morning is much much better than video games. I know by myself. I do exercise every morning and I'm now more healthier than while I was on video games.

In bad weather, active video games are good idea to keep fit which we can do exercise inside, but if it's possible i prefer doing exercise outside.
