DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that online video games have become the best type of game to play with friends? This is according to the data presented by the Pew Research Center. Board games and card games found their way back to the gaming industry in 2009. The popularity of online video games is still going well, or even better though. A study reveals that 72% of teenagers from ages 13 to 17 spend their leisure time playing online video games. This is through their personal computers, game consoles, or mobile devices as they always looking for the best games on iPhone or Android phones. Among them, a reported 36% have made a friend through networked online games. This concludes that players feel that these games are a great avenue to connect with their peers. There are a lot of persistent negative stereotypes towards gamers. Science shows those who often play video games develop better social skills than those who don’t. This is because they get to know everyone’s personality as they play along together.

Playing cooperative or "coop", a type of video game, helps children learn how to work as a team. Games could also bring social benefits to those who are autistic. Despite their lack of understanding of the basics of communication and social interaction. They are able to respond to visual stimuli—and video games are rich with these which means video games are good for your brain. That is why experts are pushing for an addition to the school's curriculum. A part of their course used for autism treatment.
