What?? What are you saying? We have always heard that gaming is very harmful. are you fooling us? To be honest, everything is harmful if done in excess. Addiction is harmful, gaming is not. If you are addicted to gaming and play day and night then it is definitely harmful but if you are playing at the limit, just for fun, then it can be beneficial for you.

There are many reasons that prove that gaming can be helpful for you in many ways. So now the main question is what are the benefits of gaming? You will get your answers, don’t worry, just keep reading the post. But again I’m warning you, play the game to the limit.

Action games can also Improve Brain Function

You may have heard of “brain games”, games that are developed to improve brain functioning in the simulation of real-world problems or you can say puzzle-oriented stuff. But in 2015 a study came out which is quite shocking.

The insight was from the journal Behavioral and Brain Science which showed that action games can actually help improve brain function more than “brain games”. The reason given behind this is that these games demand quick decision-making, interpretation of large amounts of information, quick acceptance, and a high level of attention.

According to the study, many other types of play do not produce the same effect on perception and cognition. 

Can it improve Intellectual function?

Some researchers at Columbia University discovered that video games may actually be good for children. As I have already said, addictive behaviors and binging on video games are not necessarily great. What I really mean is that moderate gameplay (gaming for an hour) is associated with higher intellectual function as well as ability in school. Now according to them, if they continue to play the game for a limited number of hours, it is not going to have any negative impact on intellectual function or school ability. 

In fact, playing games for too long at a very young age may not be good for social functions, but it can be a great collaborative leisure activity that can promote positive brain development. Even games like coin master free spin, Clash of Clans, Chess also improve the thinking ability of students

Can it treat depression?

The BMJ (British Medical Journal) studied a game called Sparx, a game that has been developed to help treat depression. Yes, you read that right, there are also games that help in the treatment of depression. The study actually found that Sparks was better at treating depression than some counselors, which is really interesting. It just leads to a self-directed learning format. Video games are designed around immersion, so they try to bring the player into the game. If a game is designed to do that properly and also designed to help the gamer cope with depression with techniques that are actually proven then I guess there is no problem playing such games. 

So The Sparx (a video game) in many cases can be more effective than a counselor. If you’re feeling depressed, I’m not telling you to play video games, instead, seek help from a person or counselor. But it’s worth noting that game design can be extremely helpful to people when done properly.

Do Playing Games Lead to Violence?

A study in Brain Imaging and Behavior provides much evidence that excessive play of violent first-person action games does not actually blunt any emotional response or cause any frustration at the neural level to violent stimuli. Doesn’t make

How was the study conducted? They put people in brain scanners who play for too long on a regular day, people who play violent gameplay for an average of 4-5 hours a day. Even the people who were studied had been playing these games by the age of 6 on average. When they were shown violent imagery or disturbing imagery their neurological responses were virtually the same as those who had not seen all those pictures. This implies that instead of blaming violent video games for the violence, perhaps we should be mindful of the world around people.

Who can control drones easily?

A study was done on drones (it’s complicated compared to drones) to see who was able to handle them better? Be it professional pilots or people playing video games? Guess who won? In fact, none, it was actually a draw. But that is the point, the point of the study was to test whether gamers could compete with the pros. And they found that video game players and professional pilots are of equal competency when it comes to piloting drones.

To be honest, this is kind of amazing. People who were not trained as pilots still do not have a significant statistical difference in performance as someone who is trained, certified, and has a job as a pilot. 

Wrapping it Up

So what did we learn from all these studies? We learned that gaming isn’t as bad as we hear from different people. What you need to take care of is playing video games within limits. Video games have a positive effect if you play the game properly and within limits.

Also nowadays there are many ways to earn money online by playing games. You can stream on Twitch and YouTube, you can develop a simple game, etc. Now if your parents have anything to say about gaming then you just need to show this article. And you can also share this article with others so that they too can bust their myths.
