Go Gaming Giant takes a look at video games and how they can benefit you and be good for your health. It turns out playing video games has its advantages.
It's fine to play games but only people who are trying to fool themselves would say that there are any kind of substantial health benefits. Advantages gained in terms of mental dexterity and problem solving are sorely undermined by the fact that many gamers (sure, not all) prefer to spend the majority of their time playing games rather than engaging in other activities. A lack of physical health undermines mental advantages. And regardless, playing games is hardly a more productive mental activity than engaging intellect through reading.
thanks and the thing is if you think bout it, a lot of it makes sense
agreed. great article!
Yep, it's true. Im living prove.
lol! I don't know if you were joking... You would be "living proof" not "living prove". hehe
My thoughts have always been: Video games most certainly improve mental health, but they do nothing to improve physical health, which is mostly more important. Great read though!
what about the Wii for physical health? Wii Fit?
The biggest improvement I've seen from gaming is I have amazing hand eye coordination. But that article brought up some good points.
Pretty interesting read, kinda agree with it, but it like everything else still needs a balanced diet.
I agree, overdoing it will just make you worse off. Everything should be taken in moderation, especially gaming.
nice write up.
Interesting news. This was a good read.
good article to show your parents
lol, that reminds me of the many times i tried justifying my gaming to them. this is the only one that would seem to work though...
I was lucky that my father own an Atari. I never had to justify gaming to my parents, because--at one point--they were already gamers.
