Well, I'm sorry for your brother. But, video games are not always bad. It depends on the type of the video game you play. If your brother is playing shooter games, like Call Of Duty, or Battlefield, he can get very aggressive because of semi-traumatizing experience in those games. I will take myself as an example: I play constructive games, which require thinking and which are mildly, or not violent at all. I can call myself a very active gamer, but I still have time to go out with my friends. Is your brother depressed?
