Picture yourself in the moment of an intense game of LOL (League of Legends). Your team and opponents are tied down to 4 all. During that moment, your mind’s own reflexes heighten and you have an Urgent Optimism.  I strongly believe that if we spend more time playing better and larger games, we might be able solve some of the our world’s most outstanding issues. “Are playing games good for us?” is a very popular question asked by parents, kids, therapists and doctors.   There certainly has to be an answer to that question.I strongly believe that if we spend more time playing better and larger games, we might be able solve some of the our world’s most outstanding issues. “Are playing games good for us?” is a very popular question asked by parents, kids, therapists and doctors.There certainly has to be an answer to that question. You all must be thinking, do video games really make us better at anything? Do they allow us to acquire new skills or abilities that will be useful in real life? The answer to these questions has been researched and answered by scientists. According to a study by Linda Jackson, Michigan state university psychology professor, gamers of all ages perform better than people who do not game when it comes to a test of attention, speed, accuracy and multitasking. They also score higher on tests that rely on creativity.Some may think that violent and scary games can damage our hippocampus or create phobias in young children. Instead, these games improve a child’s ability to manage difficult emotions, such as fear and anger.These statistics are just a tip of the iceberg. Soon we can expect more in depth research in the next decade. This research will soon lead to more result oriented research. Soon gaming will make us create better versions of ourselves.Gamers experience a range of emotions, ranging from bliss, to relief, to personal pride, to feeling emotionally close to another player, to surprise, to curiosity, to excitement, to awe and wonder.
