Playing video games doesn’t have to be bad for you. I’m defentetly one of those who’s played video games growing up, but when I became an adult, thought that video games was just a one other way to smush you brain. But playing games actually has some perks:

1. Your Vision Can Get Better

Research has shown that playing games (in moderation of course) may improve your vision.

 

2. Playing Can Reduce Your Cravings

One study showed that by playing a puzzle game you can reduce the desire for smoking or overeating by 24 percent.

 

3. You Can Get Better At Problem Solving

One long-term study showed that by playing strategy-based games you can improve your problem-solving skills.

Depending on which game you’re playing, playing games can reduce your adrenaline response by over 50 percent.

 

5. Playing Games Can Make You Happy

Games that are easy to access (like games on your phone) can improve your mood and make you more relaxed.
