What are some cognitive benefits of playing video games?

One of my favorite advantages of computer games (I would like to emphasize on well selected, reasonably balanced, morally tested and goal-oriented) as some researchers have discovered is the improvement of cognitive skills. As these are part and parcel of our day today skills we do good to lubricate and stretch them.

What are some of your pluses as you play video games?


Enhanced decision making. My decision making and reaction time improves each time I play a video game. Computer games such as Wii Fit can help you stay in shape whilst socialising with friends and family.


I think people who tend to play video games are good at taking decisions. And based on their performance in the video game, it can show you how much they are into risk taking. I think risk taking and adjusting the blood flow level is what video games are about. And we learn from that experience.
