PROVEN Health Benefits Of Video Games

I’ve been a big gamer my entire life, and while too much gaming and gaming addiction are very real problems, many studies show that playing video games actually has several health benefits, as long as you don’t overdo it. Turns out playing Fortnite, Minecraft, or even classic RPG’s can benefit your social life and even your grades!

    My theory is that as gaming becomes older and older it will stop being as criticized like people will stop saying that video games cause violence as video games become just something that’s common in every day life,video games are common now but I think when we get to the time that video games have been around as long as television it will become less criticized

    Problem isnt gaming, its the amount of hours spent gaming. Take a break after every two rounds or every 20 min and try sticking to 3 hours per day. Keep in mind that videos games are basically designed to get you addicted. Iv seen people let gaming get in the way of relationships and events in their real life, make sure to prioritize your real life before your virtial one.
