The Advantages of Video Games — Part 1

Today I’m here to talk about video games, their influence, and how they can develop your brain!

To  most, video games are viewed as a waste of time, but I am here to tell you otherwise. I’ll review every genre of games and how they can influence and help your mind. To start off, let’s go with the infamous fighting games, such as Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and many, many more.

Some of the good things about fighting games, are that they are the way to get into other games. When coding, fighting games are some of the easiest things to do, (aside from extra features) and can help the creator figure out how they can make things happen. For gamers, fighting games induce adrenaline, make the players excited. Playing multiplayer fighting games with your siblings , friends, or even people around the world, helps to strengthen your reactions and can also create bonds.

Some of the bad things are that these games are almost always violent, and contain adult circumstances if you don’t watch out what games they are playing.

Next up on the table: Puzzle Games

Like 2048, Wordbubbles, and Flow, puzzle games are one of the major pillars of mobile gaming today. They have massive advantages, and only one thing can go wrong while playing puzzle games. When playing these, the difficulty will get harder and harder as you go on, inspiring neural reactions that can help your brain’s with problem solving in the real world. The literal only bad thing that comes with a puzzle game is the risk of addiction, which is a real and serious problem for kids who play games around the world.

I’ll continue this post on how video games can help you next week. Until then,
