Videogames are healthier than play with kids
In the recent years we encountered some articles indicating that videogames are not healthy so is time to clarify and explain that videogames are a path to smarter and gentler people.
Researchers have found that playing video games including violent shooter titles boost children’s learning, health and social skills.
Playing violent shoot them up games such as Call of Duty enhances creativity and interpersonal abilities.
Playing with other kids could be risky given that sometimes we can’t control how clean they are and we cannot select the most intelligent ones to allow them to play with our owns.
On the other side videogames increase concentration, visual abilities, hand eye coordination and fuel your imagination, it inspires you. Playing videogames on a daily basis also gives you better reflexes, sharpens your instincts and improve problem solving skills and the mind’s ability to process information.
Video games cause also personal benefits because people who spend too much time sitting while playing video games don’t get into socializing much and therefore they avoid any kind of discussion or misunderstanding.
They keep a perfect record on their relationships and everybody is always willing to welcome them since they don’t usually appear in the social sphere.
True friendships last forever and the basement of true friendship is not bothering each other and if you play too much video gaming you’ll never be the super bored person that stays longer than needed at friend home.
If you want to have healthier relationships you should at least play 5 or 6 hours a day video games to enjoy a balanced, well rounded social life.
Playing with other people instead of video games led to depression, anxiety and inhibited social development.
If you are smart enough you can always win playing with other people and on video games you always find another level, another challenge to keep improving and that it what makes you a better person.
Video games are a place where you learn failure because you can lose a game and since failure is part of life there is why videogames are much healthier than playing with real kids, because videogames reflects real life.
Playing video games gives you the confidence to be anything you want, you can be a hero who saves the world, or a villain who destroy it and that it was life is all about.
Video games had distinct effects on the brain because achieving a high score requires players to react quickly, while processing information in their peripheral vision, multi-tasking, making predictions and processing the constant player feedback.
Individuals who play games at least 2 hours per day are better than non-gamers at rapidly processing complex information, estimating numbers of objects, controlling where their attention is focused and switching rapidly between tasks.
They are also better able to identify distraction and quicker to return their focus to the main task and at ignoring irrelevant, distracting visual information and made better decisions.
Playing video games lead to beneficial brain changes and consequently affect our behavior positively.
A study held in the US and Japan concludes that the children are more likely to help others in real life or in simulated tasks if they play video games at least 3 hours a day.
Videogames also affect children’s sense of empathy since they don’t have to play with kids with a different mental level, the video game level itself with the kid intelligence so they always find it interesting.
Kids that play with other real kids are always more violent that kids that only play videogames as they become better at noticing the feelings and reactions of others.
Playing games offer us an opportunity to take greater control over the shaping of our own minds and brains.
We are moving forward to most parents wanting their children to be educated by videogames and to discover how games can be the better teachers we can harness.
Let’s wish and hope that in the immediate future gaming will become the universal path for education, not school.
the world must know the truth!
