Not so long, people had no problem with video games. Barely anyone owned a PC, laptop, or even a mobile phone. However, the entire world is progressing on a daily basis and so is technology. There will always be good and bad things when we talk about gaming
Who knows, maybe these reasons will change your mind when it comes to allowing some type of console in your household.
Video games are great for relieving stress. For instance, playing video games for 60 minutes straight can take your mind off something that was bothering you throughout the entire day.
Furthermore, you will definitely be more focused while playing video games, and that will transfer to all the other things you do throughout your day. You’ll definitely be more focused while doing your regular tasks which include either work-related stuff or studying.
Not all video games are based on shooting or playing as a special character in the magic world. There are a lot of simulators on the market. This does not apply only to kids, but on adults as well. Games like Car Mechanic are great for learning about cars and their parts. Possibilities are endless, you can be a pilot, doctor, mechanic or even a manager of your rollercoaster park. You can also manage your own ZOO.
Barely anyone enjoys playing video games alone. Most modern video games are played in teams, and in 99% of situations, you will need at least one friend with you. If we take Fortnite as an example, you will definitely have more fun playing with a friend than you would have by playing solo.
On top of that, you can also play certain video games with your family. Younger generations will not be so open towards their parents, but this could be a good way to bring yourself closer to your kids.
MEETING NEW PEOPLE AND MAKING FRIENDS
Playing video games is an excellent way to develop your communication skills. Not only are you going to meet people from different countries, but you will also meet people who will be older/younger from you, and you will definitely learn how to adjust accordingly. Also, learning the basics from various languages is a great plus for everyone.
Some kids find it hard to communicate directly to other people, some are running away from eye-to-eye contact with others. Headset with microphone is a great way to start solving that problem.
PLAYING VIDEO GAMES IS FUN
Let’s face it, playing video games is fun. Not only that it is fun, but it will also help you develop your skills, and it can also prove to be a turning point when it comes to your communication skills.
The best part about gaming is its amusement. There are hundreds of genres out there, and you will definitely find something for yourself. If you are into first-person shooters, there are at least 20 popular titles available to you. Furthermore, you will also enjoy a lot of free-to-play games, so you won’t even have to spend a dime on video games.
I’ve spent a lot of time playing video games with my friends, and I can not remember a single session where we did not laugh and have fun. Make sure you surround yourself with people who you enjoy playing and spending time with, that is the best recipe for having fun while playing video games.
Today’s world is a dangerous place, surrounded by drugs, alcohol, gambling and many other vices. A lot of people ditched nightlife for video games. For most of those people, that was a great move. Not only will you save money, but you will also not be in constant danger that lurks around every corner in this modern world, and gaming is one way to have a “safer” life.
If we rewind time to 2015, and you ask someone what Esports stands for, I do not think you would get an answer. However, in 2018, Esports is more popular than some sports. For instance, Counter-Strike:Global Offensive tournament had more viewers than the NBA had that night. Needless to say that certain video games attracted a lot of attention and sponsors. Some events have ridiculous prize pools and some of the biggest brands are opting in. For instance, Counter-Strike:Global Offensive team called Cloud9 is sponsored by BMW, a famous car brand from Germany.
There are a lot of people making a living while playing video games. Let’s take one CS:GO professional as an example. Robin “ropz” Kool is born in Estonia, once he turned 18 he was able to sign a contract with a German organization called mousesports. Robin was born in 1999, and so far in his professional career, he earned a total of $309.060. My question to you is, do you know a person who was able to earn so much money when they turned 19?
Of course, Robin attended school on a regular basis while simultaneously playing CSGO. So for everyone who doubts that it’s impossible to play games and be a solid student, show them the video below which shows ropz’s inspirational story.
A lot of people will say that playing video games attracts addiction. In some cases, this might be true, but there are a lot of people who will play video games in their free time. Never put gaming in the first place, unless you want to become a professional.
There are 24 hours in a day, and you definitely have time to sleep, do your chores, study, hang out with your friends and family, and in the end have fun while playing video games.
