Model Answer:
At present, the Iranians have leisure hours, and they can enjoy so much leisure activities than before. So, a good number of activities are being exercised every day. And most importantly people are enjoying them. Playing video games is a popular leisure activity among the Iranians and they play it frequently. The games are more popular among the young adults and almost every home contains the electrical gadgets to play the games. There are various types of video games are available and most of the time the people spend time in playing them to pass their leisure activities. Thanks a lot for this nice cue card topic.

Usually, the Iranians play the video games inside their home. They connect the gaming gadgets with television and create a gaming environment. Some of the games are available on smartphones too. But people prefer to have the games on large screens. So, the number of such gamers is on the rise and they are really getting skilled in this way.

Playing video games have some benefits. The most important thing about the video games is that they provide a great pleasure to the gamer. When the gamers are in the playing mode, they even forget to perform their regular activities like taking their meals or bathing and even sometimes ignores their regular routine tasks. In the monotonous life, playing video games provide them with a sense of relief from the mundane life.

I like the matter partially as playing video games has some demerits too. Physical movements are less in this case. The gamers are to sit idle and only engage their brains to solve any puzzles or kill the enemies they see before them on the screen. Sitting for long hours with the games making them vulnerable to many physical disabilities. So, I do not feel safe to play video games.
