Many parents are very much concerned about their children, who are addicted to video games. It is not their fault at all. Every parent want their child to be physically active, go outside and play like they used to when they were young. Unlike them, a twenty first century child is more attached to video games than to any physical sport. You must’ve heard how bad it is for a growing child to sit back for ours in front of the television playing those action video games and how badly it may affect their growth and their long term health.

It is interesting to note that after a lot of research, it has been proved that playing various video games can actually improve and polish the creativity in you and can also help you think outside the box. It is also seen that if children who had certain brain illness played video games, they showed remarkable fighting spirit.

When research was done on what kind of video games improve cognitive flexibility of a person, it was seen that people who played strategic games did well in the test. They showed amazing problem solving ability and it was seen that they were good in dealing with multiple tasks at a time.

It is also proved through research that playing video games can relief pain. Not only this, when a study was taken place on people of old age, it was found that those elder people who played video games were happier and were in better health than those who didn’t.
