Glad you asked. Per ALL the research I have read, the true answer is yes. It is awful what it does to young and teenage brains. Disgusting. Terrible long term effects. I know a 15 yr. old who that's all he does. He thinks and acts like a dunce. Its his mother's fault; she allows it. Personally, I think it is a form of child neglect and abuse.
Yes

I have a friend who's husband at 60+ years old is just as bad, and many times more of a "dunce" than the 15 year old, I can assure you. If he is not playing games on some kind of a device, the ONLY tv he watches is sports channels. NO clue about world situations, current or historical events or a grown up world. They have no children, so when "baby" wants a game, "baby" gets a game...
