Video Games Are Good for You

According to the American Psychological Association (Feb 2014, Vol 45, No 2, Pg 10), playing video games can be good for you.

Video games can:

  • Improve cognitive skills, such as reasoning and memory
  • Improve problem solving skills
  • Improve your mood

When I spend a day playing video games, I am not wasting time.  Actually, I am enhancing my cognitive abilities, improving my emotional well-being, and saving the world from killer zombies.

Sounds like a win-win to me!
