Surprising Benefits of Playing Video Games

Complex, demanding and complex Video games have advanced from the basic arcade games of the 1970s. Evidence is growing that the advantages of playing go beyond entertainment and enhanced hand-eye coordination. In celebration of National Video Game Day (today) Here are 15 ways video games have helped to develop better players.

1. VIDEO GAMES ARE PRODUCING BETTER SURGEONS.

2. VIDEO GAMES COULD HELP PEOPLE OVERCOME DYSLEXIA.


A few studies point to problems with attention as one of the main causes of dyslexia. One study showed that dyslexics increased their comprehension of reading after sessions of intense games. The reason, according to researchers is due to the fact that these games feature constantly changing environments which require a lot of focus.


3. VIDEO GAMES COULD IMPROVE YOUR VISION.


"Don't sit too close to the television" was once thought to be a standard parent-child admonition, without a great deal of scientific evidence to support it. Scientists are now discovering that games played in moderation can enhance your vision, not strain it. In one study playing for 10 weeks was linked to a better ability to distinguish between various colors of grey. The other study asked participants to play games using just the "lazy" eye, with the "good" one obscured. These players demonstrated an impressive, and sometimes normalized improvement in their affected eye.


4. VIDEO GAMES COULD HELP MAKE YOU A BETTER LEADER.


Since certain types of games encourage and reward the qualities of leadership--giving them "communities," securing their security, etc.--researchers have noted that players may show a corresponding motivation to their professional goals. The ability to play improvised in a game could result in being quicker to think on your feet when a workplace crisis comes up.


5. VIDEO GAMES COULD PIQUE YOUR INTEREST IN HISTORY.


Many games rely on historical events as the basis for their narratives. These characters and places could inspire children in learning more about the world they're engaged in, as per researchers. Parents who have purchased maps, books, or other materials related to games have observed that their children are more involved in learning, leading to a lifelong appreciation of historical events.


6. VIDEO GAMES CAN MAKE KIDS MORE ACTIVE.


Some games encourage an entire body level of interaction and require the use of a handheld controller may result in physical exercise. Basketball games or tennis or skateboarding may lead to children playing the same games outdoors.


7. VIDEO GAMES MIGHT SLOW DOWN THE AGING PROCESS.


The so-called "brain games" involving problem-solving as well as memory and puzzle elements have been proven to have positive effects on players who are older. According to one research study, 10 hours of playing led to improved cognitive performance for people 50 and over, a boost that lasted for many years.


8. VIDEO GAMES MIGHT HELP EASE PAIN.


It's not uncommon to avoid the pain by focusing on something else or by focusing on different body processes however that's one of the reasons games can be a great post-injury therapy. The act of playing can trigger some kind of anti-inflammatory (pain-killing) response within our cortical and higher systems. More immersive the better. This is the reason why virtual reality technology could someday be as widespread within hospitals, as hand sanitizers.


9. VIDEO GAMES CAN HELP YOU MAKE NEW SOCIAL CONNECTIONS.


Gamers are often accused of being too closed-off However, the reverse is the case. The growth of multiplayer experiences on the internet has created an entirely new way of socializing where players collaborate to tackle issues. But research has shown that games can also act as a reason for friends to meet in person: around 70 percent of gamers are with their friends at least a portion often.


10. VIDEO GAMES CAN HELP IMPROVE BALANCE IN MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS PATIENTS.


As a disorder that affects multiple nerves, MS patients frequently have issues with balance, and no drugs have been proven to improve. One study, however, showed the MS patients who participated in games that required physical activity while sitting on a balance board showed improvements following the game.
