Some people may say that video games are bad for you, and they are a waste of time, and I can agree with them sometimes. But videos games can be very beneficial. They can be beneficial to kids and even adults that play video games. Three reasons that videogames are beneficial are they improve people’s vision, they also produce better surgeons, and they also may slow the aging process. Now let’s get into the details.
My first reason why they are beneficial to kids and adults is because video games can improve your vision. M first piece of evidence is why they can improve your vision, and they can improve your vision because a study showed that people “played games with their lazy eye and they showed improvement by a lot in their lazy eve,” says 15 surprising benefits of playing video games. My second piece of evidence is after playing video games for a while people were able to distinguish colors better. And my third piece of evidence is from the article Video Games Improve vision Study Says, “Playing “action” video games improves a visual ability crucial for tasks like reading and driving at night, a new study says.” This evidence is important because having good vision is very important in life.
My second reason why videos are beneficial is because they are producing better surgeons. My first piece of evidence is that a study of laparoscopic showed that “those who played for more than three hours per week made 32% fewer errors during practice procedures compared to their non gaming counterparts,” says 15 surprising benefits of playing videos games. My other piece of evidence says, “inexperienced surgeons who were also video gamers outperformed the most experienced surgeons in their field, (Rosser et al., 2007),” says cognitive benefits of playing video games. My third piece of evidence kinda ties in with my first piece of evidence, CBS news says, “doctors who spent at least three hours a week playing video games made about 37 percent less mistakes in laparoscopic surgery and performed the task 27 percent faster than their counterparts who did not play video games.” This evidence is important because it is a very beneficial thing in the world to have good surgeons. Surgeons can decide a person’s life, wither they mess up, or if they are successful.
My third reason why videogames are beneficial is because they may slow the aging process. Slowing the aging process would be a huge than to be able to do. It could make your life longer witch would be great! M first piece of evidence is games like “brain games involving problem solving, memory, puzzle components have been shown to have positive benefits on older players,” says 15 surprising benefits of playing video games. This could slow down the aging process in people of any age witch would mean they could have a longer life! My second piece of evidence is “one study, just 10 hours of play led to increased cognitive functioning in participants 50 years and older improvement that lasted for several years,” says 15 surprising benefits of playing video games. That it huge for somebody that is 50 and older. My third piece of evidence is that it may not only slow the aging process but it may also help seniors age more elegantly, also keeping their minds fine and active through game play. This evidence is very important because being able to slow the aging means that you can live longer. And even if it’s like a couple hours longer, that is still a very long time that you gained from just playing video games!
Some people disagree, saying that video games are a waste of time. And I can agree with them sometimes. There are a lot better things to do, like play sports like basketball and football and more. There is also things to do like hangout with friends and do homework and learn. But video games can be great by how they can be a career booster, ease pain, and may even help people overcome dyslexia.
Video games can be very beneficial to people. Video games can be very beneficial to kids and even adults. They can help people over 50 slow down the aging process. Being able to slow down the aging can gain us a couple hours which can be very useful. And video games can also improve people’s vision which can be very important in somebody’s life. Another reason why video games are beneficial if because they can produce better surgeons which can saves peoples lives! Yet some people might say that video games are just a waste of time and that they are not beneficial which can be true sometimes, but not always, special since they can be supper beneficial with a lot of helpful things. Have you ever played video games and enjoy it? Well if you have, then think about how that could have been beneficial to. So it was more than just having fun.
