The popular build-and-survive video game Minecraft could very well be the most surprising tech success of this decade. Created in 2009 by programmer Markus "Notch" Persson, expanded by a small team, and advertised mostly by word of mouth, it has more than 100 million users. To drive home its success, Microsoft bought the game a few months ago for a staggering $2.5 billion.
1.8 Billion, 1.8 Billion gamers in the world! That is more than the population of India or China.

Attention material: Do you like to play video games and be able to play them in school?
In today’s society the entertainment industry is being attacked from many angles. Television is being criticized by showing images of violence and aggression, music is being ridiculed for explicit lyrics, and within the last decade the issue of videogame violence and children has come to the attention of the mass media. The media, politicians, and many parents are blaming videogames for violent acts among children and those less than 18 years of age. But could videogames be the sole cause of violent crimes among children? In the fall of 2005 I took a course here at Coker called Videogames – Analysis and Research. The most popular topic discussed in our class was Violence and Aggression as a result of Violent Videogames. We studied
Do you consider yourself a gamer? Do you come home after a long day at work or college and stick in your favorite PlayStation or Xbox game? If so, are you aware of the negative impact your hobby is having on your life? We don’t want to ruin anybody’s fun here, and we know you’re probably not going to believe us when we tell you this anyway, but actively playing video games - as in gaming for a couple of hours a couple of nights a week - can have far-reaching negative effects on your personal and professional life.
So, Fortnite is this battle royale game where you and 99 other people spawn on this bus. This is called the battle bus. There is a map on the screen that has all these weird names like tilted towers, retail row, tomato town, etc. When you get on the bus it takes you across the map and you have thirty seconds to get off or it just throws you off and you fall to your death. Maybe not that brutal but it does do that. So when your flying to your death you can either choose to free fall and then use your glider or you can just glide which is the slow way down which takes hours. Once you get down to the ground without someone sniping you in the face. Oh, and by the way this is for little 5 year olds. But is isn’t graphic at all when you get shot
During my persuasive speech, I used an attention getter with a story to put a face on the problem of the 5-day work week because it is something for the audience to get attached to. In my attention getter, Jeff Campbell suffers from a stroke from working long hours as an accountant. I believe it was effective in showing pathos to the problem of the 5-day work week. In my thesis, I clearly stated the topic and related it to my audience by telling them that it will affect all full-time employees in America. To conclude my introduction, I gave a preview of the what I was going to talk about during my speech, which included the problems, causes, and solutions.
For example, using a leftover coffee can for loose nails or screws, or even washing and reusing a plastic zip-loc bag instead of throwing it in the garbage. Thrift shopping is a way of reusing someone else’s unwanted goods. As I spoke about in an earlier speech about thrifting, I included many locations and ways to thrift, also the benefits to the shopper and the donator. One place in particular was shopping at the local boys and girls club. I personally shop there, keeping my eyes open for a good deal. For example, the pair of jeans that I am wearing today was purchased from this store just a few months ago. I paid only $8.00 for this pair of Lucky Jeans and according to buckle.com, a retailer for lucky jeans the retail price is $99.00 that is a savings to me of $91.00.I am not the type to worry about name brands, but quality usually does cost more. If I can get a quality pair of jeans at a fraction on the price, I am glad to shop at the thrift store. I am thankful to the person that made the donation of the lucky jeans and they can benefit from that donation. According to the IRS webpage, IRS. Gov it explains that an individual can donate items like clothing, household furniture and furnishings, a car or boat, even taxidermy. The donations are appraised, by the donator, and recorded. At the time of filing taxes if the donation equals at least $500 for the year, the donator may take advantage of the
To listen to my dad, one would think that video games were created by Satan himself. He has told me over and over again that he does not understand how I can concentrate that long on NBA 2K, Grand Theft Auto, or some other XBOX One game. And according to my mom, I could have done a million other things just last night besides play my video games. In fact, both my parents have constantly told me that they will let me take my car with me when I graduate from high school and go off to college but not my XBOX One. They think I’m addicted to video games. Imagine that!
Michael Jordan once said according to (brainyquote), “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.” This is true for different activities like video games. If you want to win championships you need teamwork and intelligence, thanks to video games you can it helps teamwork and social life, it helps with certain parts of your brain, and improve decision making. For those three reasons, video games are good for you.
How would you feel if you found out that someone you knew was seemingly under a curse that caused them to be more violent and less emotionally open?(Rhetorical Question) Even if you like it or not video game addiction is a real issue and it affects over 300 Million people worldwide and it doesn’t matter if they are a casual or avid player. Throughout this speech, I hope I will bring to light not how video games cause violence but the types of unhealthy or violent behavior they cause.
