We all heard from our parents that gaming is bad for our health. This holds true is some cases, especially when a gamer spends all his day and his life sitting on the sofa playing his favorite game. However, there are games that provide more benefits. There are a lot of games that even promote good health, which is not impossible with all the advanced gaming equipments available to us.

Playing games like racing, war simulation, and first-person shooting games improves the reflexes, the ability to plan ahead, and adjust to situations instantly. These are the things that a person needs in order to successfully dominate the game, and will be improved gradually as they continue to play these kinds of games. Although some of these games may promote violence, the risk will be eliminated with proper guidance from parents.

I know that no one will oppose when I say that educational games have tons of benefits. However, this is an article that discusses the benefits of playing games, so I decided to include them. Puzzles, problem solving, and academic skills of our children are enhanced with the help of these games, even adults are learning something new while playing these education games.


Playing games these days no longer needs a player to sit all day on the sofa. In fact, using the Motion Plus controller of Nintendo Wii requires a player to physically move in order to play games. This will not only enhance the gaming experience, but will also help them burn fat and calories.

So, before you go with the saying that games are bad for your health, think again. Some games may be bad for you, but with these new games on board, playing games are becoming more beneficial. More than a source of entertainment, gaming is slowly shifting in to becoming a source of good health, fitness and well-being.
