[Infographic] Gaming is Good for You


Gaming is Good for You (Infographic)

As we know, these days kids are interested in playing video games rather than outdoor games. Many parents worry about it and forcibly keep video games away from them. No matter whatever ways we approach to encourage their physical activities, kids

simply keep on playing their Xbox games. Fortunately, more and more research is coming out that distinguishes healthy, responsible gaming from the excessive, zoned out variety. AffordableSchoolsOnline has published an infographic that goes over some really great things that video games are responsible for. Let’s learn about few important things about it.

Video games & therapy:

Virtual reality helped treat the pain of a severely burned marine.

The game, SnowWorld, put him in a 3D snowball fight while surgeons operated on his burns.

With the game, he thought about the pain less than 25% of the time.

Other Virtual reality treatments:

SpiderWorld lets people with arachnaphobia face a tiny spider at their own pace.

Chez Fortune simulates a bar with casino games to help gambling addicts resist their temptations.

Video games and Socializing:

65% of games play their games with a friend present.

Online games like World of Warcraft and Runescape are brimming with people and adventure.

WoW alone has over 12 Million members.

Video games and Education:

Video games can improve early literacy in 4 and 5 year olds, especially letter recognition and story comprehension.

More than 100 Fortune 500 companies, like IBM, Crisco and Cold Stone Creamery, use some form of gaming for training purpose.
