Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

 

The concept of video games has no worldly or religious benefit. Rather, such games are harmful to ones mental and physical health. Also, hours at a time are wasted in playing video games so much so that even the prayers are missed.  Therefore, it will not be permissible to play video games, especially, of this kind.
