"Video games foster the mindset that allows creativity to grow." was a quote once said by Nolan Bushnell that really represents the true reasons for why video games are good. That doesn"t solve the debate but it helps a lot. There is a lot of things that could counter-argue that but in this argument, you will learn about why I believe that video games are good and have many positive effects that outweigh the negatives, along with many good reasons. Those reasons are that they help with mental struggles, they give you your basic mental skills, and help with your creativity.
My first reason is that it helps with basic mental struggles such as dyslexia. For example, in an article by BBC, it states that in a study on 4 ten-year-olds they played constant video games for 12 hours and in the end had better cognitive skills. This is important because it is real-life proof of kids using their video games to their advantage and help them with their struggle. Another piece of evidence is that in a study by Dartmouth University for Apa.org it states that kids with dyslexia had shown improvement in their reading abilities after using computer programs for a little while. This is important because this is conclusive evidence of people with basic mental struggles using video games to help them and showing signs of improvement, not disimprovement.
In addition, my second reason is that they help you develop your basic mental skills. For Example, in an article RaiseSmartKid, it states that if your children play video games it will help them develop their basic problem-solving skills. This is important because those are skills you need to have in order to succeed in life. Another example would be that in a study done for the same article as above it states that video games also help develop the basics for hand-eye coordination and your basic motor skills. This is important because like I said above those are skills you need to succeed.
My third and final reason is that video games help with your creativity. This might not seem important but it is. In an article by Michigan State University it found that out of 500 twelve year olds, the ones who played video games had more creativity then the ones who didn"t. This is key because in our everyday lives we have to be creative for like writing stories but stories get bland if you aren"t creatively so that is why this is key. Another piece of evidence is that in a study by USAToday it found that kids who play video games tend to be more creative then ones who don"t. This is important because if people have done a lot of research and found that video games do help then it is true and video games are good for creativity.
Now yes you could argue that video games are bad because they can teach you what some bad things might be like maybe a drug or something and then you go tell your friend that and it blows up. That is bad but there are so many more positives like how they help you learn which just is one of the many reasons that video games are good.
In summary that is just some of the many reasons why video games are good and why I believe that video games are good and have many positive effects that outweigh the negatives. There are many more reasons I could"ve talked about but I feel that those reasons I gave you are some of the best reasons for why video games are good.
