Attention to children and adolescents and their helath status will guarantee the future of health of the society. Games as spirit of childhood and the thing distinguishing children from adulthood is a medium with which the child communicates with the world around. Thus, it is imperative to carry out a research on comparing children's physical games in natural settings and computer games which have recently entered into the children world. In the current research, an all-out comparison between these two games has taken place while examining features and outcomes of physical and computer games. The present research has been conducted in a library form and through examination of relevant books and sources. Upon analyzing evidence and sources, it is concluded that children's play in natural settings free from virtual world is far better than computer games and its positive outcomes are more while less risks are incurred. Moreover, computer games related negative outcomes are greater than positive ones.
