There’s a belief that gaming is just a diversion, an addictive source of entertainment, but recent studies have shown that gaming has many benefits, including the development of cognitive skills in both children and adults.
When you work out in a gym you tone and strengthen your muscles. In much the same way, games engage the brain in constant stimulation, which improves the brain’s performance.
In an article for engadget.com, writer Sheila Eugenio outlines some of the cognitive benefits of playing games.
Improves problem-solving skills
Games involve certain rules. This means that the player has to think carefully before making any move to ensure that they stay within the required rules of that particular game. The player needs to make split-second decisions that will determine whether or not he or she will advance to the next level.
Playing your favorite game may require both visual and audial memory. The player is required to read or listen to the instructions which might only be provided at the beginning of the game, thus the need to remember them throughout the entire game. This helps improve your memory, whether short-term or long-term.
Improves attention and concentration
Games, especially action games, have proven to be able to capture the player’s attention for the entire period of the game. This is brought about by the player’s need to achieve certain objectives within the game, and be able to win!
It is a great source of learning
Gaming is not only beneficial to adults and teenagers, but to children as well. Many modern education institutions incorporate online games as a teaching methodology. This helps these children improve their academic skills by providing online games that are specifically aimed at enhancing their cognitive and creative skills.
Improves the brain’s speed
While gaming, the brain receives multiple stimulations, both visual and audial. According to research, individuals who play games frequently can process these stimulators faster than others. These stimulators ensure that the brain is continuously working to interpret them.
Enhances multitasking skills
An action game, for example, may require you to be very observant. It requires you to be able to move your piece while assessing your oncoming adversaries, ammunitions left, available time and a multitude of other factors. All of these are vital to winning. This multitasking ensures that the player can observe and react according to all requirements of the particular game.
Improves social skills
Gaming enables players to engage in a moment simultaneously. As such, there is constant communication between the players, which in turn results in the development of meaningful relationships among them. This can help players meet new friends while also strengthening bonds with their old friends.
