Gaming makes you more successful. According to a study by Gamespot "gamers actually tend to be more social, more successful and more educated than people who make fun of them." If you don't play video games I suggest that you make time for it.
Gaming provides positive effects to the brain. According to Game-spot and the University of Rochester, "Video games can improve your kid’s decision making speed. People who played action-based video and computer games made decisions 25% faster than others without sacrificing , Other studies suggests that most expert gamers can make choices and act on them up to six times a second—four times faster than most people, and can pay attention to more than six things at once without getting confused, compared to only four by the average person." Playing video games will improve your life all together.
Video games could become a career. " A professional gaming league that currently tours across the US, today announced it has signed a new group of cyber athletes to the largest contract in pro-gaming history. Tom Taylor, also known as Tsquared, and the Final Boss team of David "Walshy" Walsh, brothers Thomas and Daniel Ryan, and Ryan "Saiyan" Danford, each signed three-year deals worth a total of $1.25 million dollars." Finally this proves that video games are more than the waste of time parents claim them to be.
In conclusion, playing video games relieves stress, is great for the body, and is great for the family. Overal, video games greatly improve the quality of life so I suggest you go pick up a controller and start gaming.
