Top 5 Things List


It’s no secret that video games are an excellent way to pass the time, but did you know they’re good for your health? In this blog, we’ll explore how they help with stress and anxiety, why they’re good at making new friends and strengthening old friendships, what types of games are best for problem-solving skills, and why escaping into a game is sometimes necessary. Ready to start exploring? Then let’s get started!

Escaping reality

Video games are an escape from reality. You can be anyone you want to be and do anything you want to do, with an endless amount of freedom. One moment you’re saving the world from aliens on Earth, the next moment you’re playing basketball with a bunch of old friends who have gathered for a reunion at your high school gymnasium.

Being able to escape into another world is one of the best things about video games.

Making new friends

  • Video games are a great way to meet new friends.
  • Online gaming communities are a great place to meet other gamers.
  • There are many social networks for gamers, including Discord and PSN Profiles.

Getting better at problem-solving

While most people see video games as a way to pass the time or be entertained, there are many benefits to playing them. One of these is learning how to solve problems in the real world. As you play a game, you may encounter obstacles that require you to think critically and creatively before finding a solution that works best for your situation. This skill can be very useful in solving problems in any area of life, such as schoolwork or personal relationships.

Soothing anxiety and depression

One of the best things about video games is that they can be a great way to unwind and relax. If you work in an office or other stressful setting, video games can help you de-stress from your day.

Video games are also a great way to get out of a bad mood or relax after a stressful day. They can help you sleep better at night by distracting your mind from thoughts about how much work you have left to do the following day.

The adrenaline rush you get when playing

You may have had a similar experience, but when I play video games I am always at the edge of my seat. A few times, my heart was actually racing so much that it felt like it would explode! In fact, this happened once when playing one of the old Final Fantasy games. At one point in the game there is an intense battle with an evil sorcerer who has kidnapped your girlfriend and turned her into some kind of monster by placing a spell on her with his dark magic.

The sorcerer blasts both you and your friend with lightning spells while also summoning monsters to fight against you both while he throws fireballs at you from above. It’s chaos! The battle lasts nearly 30 minutes before finally defeating him and saving your girlfriend from his evil clutches (and restoring her back to normal).

I don’t know if this was just me getting too into the game or what, but afterwards I had to go lay down because my heart rate was through the roof!

You can enjoy video games in a healthy way by taking regular breaks, limiting your time, and having a solid support system.

You’ll feel better if you make sure that you are spending time on other things besides gaming.

It’s also important to have a balance between all aspects of your life: work, school, family and friends. Don’t forget to exercise and eat right!
