Is playing video games on Sunday bad?

My Dad And Mom is always saying its bad to play games on sunday. I don’t really know why but when I ask them, they say its a resting and you become violent if you play it. I never got any bad influence from the games I just play it for fun. Is what my parents are saying true?
