Do video games ruin televisions?
On many older TVs, leaving a single image on the screen for too long will result in "burn-in" in which the picture is literally etched into the screen. Newer sets are specially designed to prevent this. Leaving a video game on pause while you go out for dinner (and forgetting to turn off the tube) may very well cause this. Unfortunately, several parents don't realize that screens have improved, so as a result, for fear of screen burn-in, these parents won't let their kids play Nintendo on that brand-new high-definition TV in the den. Instead they're stuck with the boring old black-and-white TV with a screen so tiny you have to squint just to see which way Mario's facing. The truth is, the new TV is actually more resistant to burn-in than the old one. Moral: Always turn off your TV when you're not using it!

The answer seems to be two part. If you have an old CRT type of TV screen then the answer is yes. If a static image is left on for extended time periods then it is possible fo…r "burn in" to occur. If you have purchased a television in the last few years then most likely you will have no problem because the LCD, LED, and DLP HDTV's use a different technology.
Yes Yes you can
Nope, not unless you get angry with your game and hit the screen.
Yes you can but wouldn't it be easier to play games in front of your tv?
hdtvs that are 1080p i prefer samsung and sony except for Guitar Hero because you have to calibrate the lag .
Staring into a TV (witch has a cathoderay-tube) or a game (witch has an LCD screen sometimes) can give you a headache from eyestrain (especially if you have had a seizure in t…he past). Plus, MOST of what's on t.v and in games is mindless garbage, souly for entertainment...........but not always ;)

Things called Capture Cards are your answers. Things from a "Dazzle DVC100" to a "Happauge 1212" are little boxes that you take the output cords (audio and video) and plug the…m into the system, from there advanced systems (like the happuage) will have two output locations. One is the USB output which you plug into your computer, then with the software you would record. And two the output cords (either HDMI or Composite) would plug into your TV.
it would depend on the game on computer games that are mmorpgs then the game
Absolutely not. In fact, some people say that plasma TVs are better suited than an LCD for a TV that will primarily play videogames.
no, i don't think so
Playing a video game with a console connected to the TV, such that the game appears on the screen, cannot damage the TV. Playing video games while actually sitting on your TV …could indeed ruin it, as TVs are not intended to be used as seating. If you suspect someone has been sitting on your TV while playing games, you might want to ask them to stop doing that.
Sesures and epileptic fits (Extremly Rare! And only if you have a condition ) also head aches and a lack of social life.
Well, after a long while playing video games, typically my thumbs feel like they're going to break off, my butt may hurt and my eyes water up approximately every three seconds…, causing temporary blindness. Gaming can also cause insomnia, geekiness, lethargy, apathy, loss of significant other due to frustration and neglect, death from starvation or dehydration due to personal neglect, body odor for similar reasons ... it's a long list. Also I guess if you suffer from epilepsy it may cause seizures. But mainly the other stuff.

Playing video games on a modern plasma screen will not ruin the display. There are some precautions that can be taken to prevent 'burn-in' on a plasma display. As long as yo…u mix up the game titles or use the TV to watch television broadcasts or movies, there will be no constant image in one area of the screen that can cause 'burn-in'. Don't leave a paused game on the screen for more than an hour, and don't pause DVD's for more than 20 minutes. Be sure to configure your game console to display the image across the whole screen at the maximum resolution your TV will support (1080p, if you can).
