Video games offer a fun escape from reality. But sometimes they are often considered a waste of time. Are many parents worried if these games make their children dumb?
First, let’s just assume that too many things can go wrong. Even healthy foods, such as superfoods, can have side effects if taken in large quantities. So if a child does nothing but play video games all the time, then video games have a negative effect on the child.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of computer games
Intelligent Brain – Studies have repeatedly shown that the human brain becomes more active after playing computer games. In addition, there is an increase in gray matter in children associated with memory, strategic planning, and motor skills who play one hour of video games daily.
Pay attention to detail – These games help children pay more attention to the little things. This is because in some computer games the player needs to pay attention to the details.

Improved vision – Children can not only see small details, but they can also distinguish colors in a better way. It also helps children see the change in contradictions.
Better use of technology – In today’s world, many activities are driven by technology. Activities such as operations with robotic weapons and cameras are being carried out. Controlling these robotic weapons is like computer games with screens and controllers. Children are less likely to make mistakes when exposed to computer games.
That said, all of these capabilities are only useful when used in practice.
Unfortunately, popular video games among children are the ones that reward them for abusing other people. Because of this, a child may begin to understand that this is how things work.
Also, computer game rating systems are not effective. Reviews are provided by the people who make the products. Obviously, they want to make sure that video games are sold and profitable. Also remember that anything that takes children off the couch is better than computer games that keep them off the couch.
