“Video games are bad for you? That’s what they said about rock-n-roll.”
I love video games. And, while I don’t game nearly as much as I used to, I can’t hide the fact that growing up as a gamer had a big influence on who I am today.
In the past, us gamers have gotten a bad wrap. We’ve been labeled as being lazy, unproductive, violent, and immature.
However, as scientists and research teams have conducted more studies on the effects that playing video games has on individuals, they are discovering more and more that playing video games may actually provide some positive benefits.
