Visit many game zones or video game arcades in Kabul, and you will feel like you're on a full-fledged battlefield. There is shooting. You hear strange and ear-shattering sounds. Sometimes the noise is mixed with shrieks. You can hear sounds of small weapons and heavy artillery, tanks, and monstrous vehicles.
In these video arcades, the most popular games for children and adolescents are war games. These are shooting games, where weapons are used and people are killed.
These types of war games, in addition to the physical damage they cause children, also have a negative impact on their hearts and minds. These kind of games instill violence and destructiveness in the children who play them.
