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!

34yo gamer here with 22 year experience. Ever since i got into gaming i loved racing games. These last 5 years are even better with all the sim-racers. Is there any benefit you ask? Of course there is. Just like in sim-racing online, when i'm behind the wheel, i always keep in check the other cars on the road. You develop a habit of watching and reacting to the road and cars further than simply the car in front of you. You get used with things like being aware of objects in your peripheral vision. I now drive only AWD cars, but when i used to drive RWD cars, saved quite a few slides and aquaplanings, thx to the reflexes developed during virtual racing. Managed to avoid few cars spinning my way as well, simply because i learned not only to observe the cars in my lane, but across the entire road. This skill can't be acquired just by regular, everyday driving, you need to have experienced some sort of racing-like driving, where stuff happens faster and things go wrong much more frequently. Then we have RTS (Real-Time Strategies) which not only develop your problem solving skills, but basically force you to get better in improvisation. You know how chess was always thought of as a game for smart people. Well good and deep real-time strategies are 21st century''s chess. While in chess you have enough time to think and plan your next move and can foresee what your opponent is doing, in RTSs you basically have to respond at a fingersnap to an unknown strategy. As for FPSs... well they are generally developing every skill and sensation at once, at a slower steady rate.

my parents asked if video games would be good for my sibling who struggles with anxiety & depression and i said yes. glad there are so many benefits! ❤️ i was thinking about the social factor and happiness boost. i didn’t know it helps with brain matter and visualizing 3D objects better! and yes it is possible to overdue gaming and be consumed by it so it’s nice to have a healthy balance.
