Some people say modern children's games do not develop a wide range of skills, while traditional games can be much better for developing such skills.To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Some argue that children who play modern games may not develop a wide range of skills as those who play traditional games do. I find this ideaunconvincing. Without denying the merits of traditional games, I am more in favour of modern games, whose better scientific rationale and diversity make them more desirable.
First, modern games are designed based on proven scientific theories and principles, whereas traditional games may not be. [whereas引出比较，并且，由于前半句褒奖的modern games，所有whereas 后的否定词not就是暗示一种批评traditional games] [接下来解释什么叫做are designed based on proven scientific theories and principles，并且在解释的过程中不断“正评价”] When producing games, developers of modern games refer toscientific findings regarding children’s cognitive development, and as a result, the design of those games often aligns with the patterns of children’s development of skills. By marked contrast, traditional games, descending through generations, are based on experience, empirical practice that may be counterproductive. In other words, [引出上一句中counterproductive的详情]traditional games not only fail to promote children’s skills but also limit them. [接下来不断“负评价”traditional games] This crucial difference enables modern games to better foster children’s skills. [最后故意点一下题，但是这个不是绝对必要的，是在这一篇文章里依情况而定的一种临场设计]
In addition, modern games are characterized by [“以…为特点”] their variety of types, whereas traditional games are monotonous [“单调的”]. When children play a wide range of games, a broad array of skills may develop accordingly. For example, LEGO bricks promote children’s imagination; playing educational video games lays a foundation of children’s literacy, numeracy as well as reasoning. In comparison, during the play of traditional games, which areconfined [confine: “局限”] to a few types games, players learn merely a limited number of skills. This is another key difference that highlights modern games and overshadows traditional games.
In conclusion, their forms diverse and their design complying with science, modern games are more recommendable than traditional games. Through modern games, it is more likely that versatile children are cultivated.
