Gaming is your key to Reduce stress and Depression

"A recent study commissioned by PopCap Games found that casual games like Bejeweled and Peggle can help lift people's moods and help combat stress, fatigue, psychological tension, and anger. In a six-month study of 134 people, they found that playing Bejeweled reduced stress by 54 percent compared to a control group. The games also help lift participants' moods, particularly with Peggle, where there was a massive 573 percent improvement after playing. "

The story is too old to be commented.

Shatter, Zuma, Mushroom Wars, PixelJunk Monsters, Peggle and so on is awesome, I feel relaxed and enjoyed with them.. The music, sounds and gameplay makes them fun to play.. So why would this study not be true :)

Anyway, another great reason for plaing casual games once in a while!

All those casual games are great when im stressed. Just never play MW2 or halo when stressed. In those games there's a 50/50 chance you'll get more stressed. If i wasn't addicted 2 MW2 i'd have quit a month after it came out. Now i find myself going for every title and emblem. Rage quit
