The debate is still on as to whether computer games are good for you with one school of thought believing they are, and another school of thought disagreeing. I am from the school of thought that believes computer games are good and I will take time in this article to briefly say why.
Let’s therefore look at 3 amazing benefits of playing computer games.
1 They encourage people to be persistent
The nature of games is that they come with a certain degree of difficulty so that your success depends on how persistent you are. In many cases, you will lose a couple of times before you actually register a win and in many cases gamers go months or years without completing the game. What this does is make the player persistent as they strive to win the game and this is a quality that will benefit them in life.
2 They encourage development of problem solving skills
Generally speaking, games are never straight forward as they are designed to challenge you to figure out how to win. Essentially, the game will end up offering you a problem that needs solving therefore the more you play it and work towards getting to the end goal, the more your problem solving skills are developed. These are skills that will benefit other aspects of your life.
3 They improve your multitasking ability
One of the great things about computer games is that they engage a lot of your senses simultaneously. As you play, you are using your visual senses to see, audial senses to hear and at the same time using your hands and even legs to control the game. This usually has the benefit of greatly improving your multitasking ability.
With such benefits which have been tested and proven, it’s a no brainer that gaming is really good for your own personal development. It will serve you well if you tried a little bit of gaming.
