Abstract
The article discusses the impact of computer games on the cognitive development of older preschool children. As significant parameters that affect the cognitive development of the child, the time spent on a computer game and the genre of computer games is considered. The study involved 200 preschool children and their parents. The results of the study made it possible to say that the level of cognitive development of children playing computer games moderately in almost all cognitive processes exceeds the level of development of non-playing and multi-playing children. The exception was only indicators of the development of imagination. The various effects of computer games of various genres on the development of cognitive processes in preschoolers were revealed. So, games of the arcade genre negatively affect the formation of all cognitive processes studied in the article. In turn, developing computer games have a positive impact on the development of cognitive processes. Based on the data obtained, the article concludes that it is necessary, on the part of adults, to control and regulate the time that an older preschool child spends on computer games, as well as choose the genre of computer games.
