NUMBER 6: IMPROVE LEARNING
According to research, it was found that people who play video games tend to make fewer mistakes in their life as compared to people who don’t play. They have already made so many mistakes in passing difficult levels in games, that they are used to take very intelligent steps in real life. Their minds are trained in a way that they have to be very careful in all steps in life.
NUMBER 5: MORE GREY MATTER IN BRAIN
The study shows that gamers have more grey matter that exists in their brain as compared to non-gamers. The grey matter of the brain is involved in many important functions like controlling speech, emotions, sense of judgment, sensory perception, and many others. So, the study told that gamers have more grey matter and more neurons working than normal non-gamer people. Their brain connectivity is more boosted than other people.
NUMBER 4: BETER SOCIAL SKILLS
Children who play video games have better social skills as compared to those who don’t play. They are good academically too and their sense of judgment is also great. Other children who don’t play video games are not socially very much active and tend to be very shy.
NUMBER 3: BETTER PROBLEM SOLVER
According to another study, Gamers are better at problem-solving skills whether they are in real-life situations or academics. They think more critically and from all angles to solve a certain problem. Other people think only in one way and just think slow towards a certain situation.
NUMBER 2: BETTER MENTAL HEALTH AND VISION
Playing video games can improve mental health by creating a balance in personality and thinking capabilities. Researchers found out that, video games help to relieve stress and improve heart rhythms. And shockingly according to another research, people who play games have shown to improve their vision. Obviously not 24/7 but research was conducted on some people who were nongamers. They had to play games 2 to 3 hours a day and after few days, their vision was tested. Later they showed that they were able to see clearly in cluttered spaces because the spatial resolution of their eyes had been improved.
NUMBER 1: MORE PERSISTENT AND DEVOTED
Playing video games surely makes you more persistent and devoted in your work. If you fail a level in game or fail to complete a certain mission first time, you try another time and do the task in more better way. Similarly, in real life situations, they don’t stop if they fail, they try to achieve their goal with more better performance than last time until they don’t succeed. So, yeah! if there is any gamer around you, don’t underestimate them just because you think taht they only waste their time and do nothing else.
HEALTHY VIDEO GAME TIME:
It is not recommended to play games all the time and it depends on age too. For kids, just 1 hour is enough for screen time and especially video games. They can be addicted to them badly. Children should be under strict control of parents for them to give proper time to video games and not indulge in them too much that will affect their health badly. Also, teenagers and adults should also play video games within limits and should not sacrifice their health for them.
First of all, excess of everything is very bad. The same goes for games too. But for people who say that playing games are just and only a waste of time, then they should know that people who give proper time to video games are much more physically and mentally active than people who don’t play them. So to underestimate them or judging them as time-wasters is not a good thing. They play it as their hobby and some of them are also earning by streaming their favorite games. If you say a chef that, he is just wasting the money on buying expensive ingredients in just like, telling a gamer that he is wasting time by playing the games he wants to. Everything has a good and a bad side. Game developers always try to develop a new marvel and the latest technologies are making it unbelievable and unpredictable day by day!
