We all know the PlayStation, the PC, the Xbox, the Gameboy, and all the other myriad examples of gaming devices out there in the world today. Gaming is a pervasive part of our student’s culture, coloring everything from their choices in clothing to their taste in cuisine, there are even themed restaurants that are entirely dedicated to gamers and the games they love. National Video Games Day is dedicated to recalling this defining part of our student’s culture and sharing it with our fellow gamers, new and old alike.
It is always an exciting time to follow video game news or enjoy video games themselves, and National Video Games Day simply allowed Lycée students to share that enthusiasm and enjoy their collective love for games. National Video Games Day should not be a holiday just about buying new games and peripherals. It should be about highlighting how many of us have fun playing video games.
Even though video games often get a bad reputation because children play them so much, several benefits are associated with video games. Did you know that they can be good for you? Of course, not all the games on the market today provide educational value, yet some involve teamwork and problem-solving, and they have been shown to enhance the gray matter in your brain, ultimately growing it. By playing video games, you can increase the number of different skills, ranging from communication skills to problem-solving.
The benefits do not end there when it comes to video games either. Video games can also increase happiness. After all, they provide a lot of fun. However, it is more than that. Recent studies have shown that students who play video games are more relaxed and less stressed when compared with those who do not. Plus, the rush that you get when you complete a level that was difficult to overcome is a great feeling. Celebrating National Video Games Day is both easy and fun, Lycée student’s got together with their friends and talked and share their love of video games!
Game on Lycée!
