Ready Player Everyone
The videogame industry has seen a boost lately. Given the need to physically distance ourselves from other humans, the days of “you kids should go outside and build a fort with your friends” are fast becoming, “you kids should stay inside and play some Fortnight.” In fact, according to The NPD Group, one of the largest market research companies in the world, overall video game sales in March approached $1.6 billion, representing a 35-percent year-over-year increase. Wow! That’s a lot!
This recent development is in a long list of new “norms.” And while gaming may not be immediately recognized as a panacea for cognitive growth, some have gone as far as to say that playing videogames can be a positive and enriching experience when wielded responsibly. Here are some stated benefits that may surprise you.
- Improves learning skills in younger children
- Enhances memory, brain speed & concentration
- Improves multi-tasking skills
- Exercises social skills through group play
- Promotes teamwork & builds confidence
