1. What kinds of games do children play these days?
Well, I think a lot of children these days play video games on smart devices like the iPhone or iPad. I’ve seen too many children do this. Some parents even take it as a way to shush their children. My nephew would spend hours playing such games and I think this is not that good. Playing video games too much is not good for their eyes and they may get addicted to it. I think parents are obliged to take their children outdoors to enjoy the sunlight, the trees, songs of birds and the like rather than just staying at home and staring at the screen.
2. Why do people play different kinds of games when they grow up?
Well, I think the game is necessary for the growth of a person. Maybe it’s just out of human nature that people want to play games. I personally like games because they let me do things I'd never be able to do in real life. I can explore crazy impossible places, charge into battle without suffering any real-life consequences, try to take over the world, pretty much anything. I personally like open world sandbox-style games because of the sheer freedom you have, you know. It's like watching a movie except you control the main character.
3. Do parents in your country encourage children to play games?
Well... to be honest with you, I’d say know. Chinese people attach great importance to education, so you can see more parents take their children to all kinds of extra-curricular classes rather than playgrounds or parks on weekends. Chinese parents would regard playing games as a waste of time. Also, children here in China are under much pressure due to their schoolwork. So even they have time, they may choose to study rather than play. Well I know this sounds rather miserable but we can barely do anything about it. We have too many competitors and we have to strive for excellence.
4. Do you think winning is the most important goal for playing games?
I don’t think so. To be honest with you, I think losing a game can sometimes be a good thing! Sure,at first, losing doesn’t feel all that good. But losing builds character. Learning how to deal with loss is one of the most important life lessons, as the loss is simply a major part of our life experience. Losing a game isn’t the only time you’ll face defeat, and how you respond and pick yourself back up says a lot about you. Losing also gives you drive and purpose. It makes you want to strive to be better and achieve what you previously couldn’t.
