Playing Video Games Is Good For You
Playing Video games have positive effects on mental health, cognitive and social skills, according to research.
Although traditional concerns have been expressed about the risk of obesity, addiction, risk of suicide and desensitization to aggressive behavior, but results of tedious studies overall remain contradictory and inconclusive.
Researchers furthermore have reported that playing games that focus on storytelling rather than action can encourage the development of social abilities in children with Autism. One study even suggests that even violent video games have their positive contribution, as they promote visuospatial cognition.
Other researchers have been looking at how time spent playing video games correlates with the mental health, cognitive and social skills of children.
After adjusting for age, gender and number of siblings, results indicated that high video game usage led to a greater chance of high intellectual functioning and a higher chance of high overall school competence.
In conclusion, Video game playing is often a collaborative leisure time activity for children. These results indicate that children who frequently play video games may be more social with peers.
It has also been stressed that it is very important that proper guidance be given to children while playing video games to further protect their cognition of right and wrong.
