Peer Review Checklist*
What is the main point of this paper?
Whether video games are good or bad for people, and how popular this industry really is.
What is the greatest strength of this paper?
I enjoyed the way the author has all of his research in such great order. His numbers and statistics help explain what he/she is writing about. The graphs are also very informative. The author studied the subject very well.
