What are the advantages of gaming?

Playing games has many different positive effects. It's a way to relax and have fun.1 In addition, there are cognitive, motivational, emotional and social benefits.

Games can improve concentration and attention. This applies more to action games, such as shooter games, than to slower games, such as puzzle or role playing games. In action games, the gamer must be able to think ahead, be alert and react quickly. In particular, visual selective attention improves (being able to focus on a task and resist distractions or unimportant stimuli). This can already be seen after a game session of one hour. Due to improved attention, gamers are also likely to be faster at learning new skills in everyday life. In addition, there are also indications that action games improve sustained attention (focused attention for a longer period of time) and the reaction time. That means that gamers can respond faster during long tasks than non-gamers, while being equally accurate. In addition, cognitive flexibility is trained by playing action games. This allows someone to quickly adapt to changes and switch between tasks quickly. Here, on judi slot you can approach the finest game experience by choosing from their variety of games.

Playing action games is linked to improved spatial skills, also outside the game context. Spatial insight is important in subjects such as mathematics, technology and surgery, but also in daily life. Most games require a combination of visual perception and fine motor skills.

Games often provide little instruction on how to fix a problem, requiring gamers to explore possible solutions themselves. Analytical skills, planning, perseverance and devising solution strategies are important. Finally, playing games has been linked to increased creativity. This applies to all genres.

Games are motivational
Games are highly motivating. Game features such as flow, clear goals, rewards and instant feedback, and increasing difficulty motivate you to keep playing. In games, the level of difficulty often adapts to the skills of the gamer, providing an optimal balance between challenges and frustration on the one hand and sufficient experience of success and rewards on the other. Gamers quickly experience becoming good at something and gain appreciation for it. This increases self-confidence, gamers experience more competence and they learn new skills faster. The belief that with practice you can become better at something despite experiences of failure can have positive effects in other areas of life, such as at school and at.

Connecting with others through games
Gaming is an easy way to connect with people of all ages and from different parts of the world. You can play games with or against each other, offline or online. For example, new friendships are formed or existing friendships are strengthened and gamers are part of an online community. In this, gamers strengthen social skills and prosocial behavior, such as working together, exchanging knowledge, helping each other, communicating, language skills, and taking the lead.

Finally, games offer the opportunity to experiment with different characters and personalities. In a game you can choose an avatar and adjust characteristics, determine your identity or role and adopt different values and standards than you would in offline life.
