Video Game Play May Provide Learning, Health, Social Benefits, Review Finds

“Playing video games, including violent shooter games, may boost children’s learning, health and social skills, according to a review of research in American Psychologist.”

“While one widely held view maintains that playing video games is intellectually lazy, such play actually may strengthen a range of cognitive skills such as spatial navigation, reasoning, memory and perception, according to several studies reviewed in the article. This is particularly true for shooter video games, which are violent, the authors found. A 2013 meta-analysis found that playing shooter video games improved a player’s ability to think about objects in three dimensions just as well as academic courses designed to enhance these same skills, according to the study.”
