What is a good Thesis Statement for a research paper on the history of video games?

ggmydude:

I'm sure you know the thesis statement is the most important part of your essay. So before writing it, tell me some of the specific details you're going to cover in your research paper.

Lionblaze15:

Well, where they came from, how they were made, who made them.

ggmydude:

I assume you're going to start with Nintendo, or maybe the Magnavox?

Lionblaze15:

Nintendo that's my main game everything I have is Nintendo

ggmydude:

Right, if you're covering "where they came from" you have to start at the very beginning. Believe it or not, video games were on the rise since the mid 70's; way before the NES in the 80's. Atari and others were the kings of the franchise before Nintendo. That is especially important when addressing "who made them."

ggmydude:

I'm not trying to nitpick at your structure, this is important when using your thesis sentence. Since everything rides on that one statement

Lionblaze15:

Mkay, got that, thxs Gray

ggmydude:

but- I haven't...

Lionblaze15:

If your not done, please continue

ggmydude:

I can give you the thesis statement, I just need you to provide very precise details of your essay to make sure its good. If you take my advice and start with the Magnavox, this would be a good thesis statement: Video games changed the lives of children as far back as the Magnavox Odyssey and as early as the Nintendo Switch—fulfilling a rich history of creation over the course of several generations. Now, depending on what specific details you include, this would be a great or not-so-great thesis statement. Which is why I ask for more of your cooperation in this process when deciding exactly what you want to write about.

Lionblaze15:

I like it tbh Gray

ggmydude:

Good good, just make sure to talk about the full history and stick to the points I mentioned if you plan on using my thesis statement. Best of luck!
