Three Reasons Playing Strategy Games Are Good

Playing games that challenge your mind and make you think do they actually help you out. Well, I know that I like to play some of the strategy games that you use blocks and other objects to figure out a strategy that works for you to advance in the game. I know that these games are wonderful for a wide variety of reasons and I thought I would share those reasons here as to what I have found is the benefit of playing games that make me think and the effects that they have had on my way of thinking.

The first thing that I noted is that while I am playing these strategy games I am made to think and figure out problems. Now this means that my problem solving skills are greatly improved because I am made to think about the proper move in a rapid fashion. So you will have to think about the problem and be able to solve it without having to stress out about the problem because you are getting used to solving problems in a game setting which is much more peaceful and less stressful than what you are working on in a real life situation.

The second thing that I have noticed by being able to play strategy games is that it teaches me patience. I know that many people will say that a game that is strategy can be very frustrating, but if you consider that it can teach you to be very patient then you will want to remember that if you are patient for a game that even when life seems to be getting hectic for you that you can think of your game and remember that you had to be patient for good things to happen on your game so you can have the same patience in your life.

The third thing that I know that helps me out when I play strategy games is that it helps me out with my memory of things. Now I know that some of the strategy games that I play require you to remember the moves of some of the pieces and when you have multiple pieces in the game you will want to make sure that you remember how each piece moves so you do not have to refer back each time. So you learn how to quickly remember things that you might not have even thought to be important, but they are.

While many people like to play action or adventure games strategy games are also a great game that you will want to consider to play at least once in a while or more often than that. You will find that you can have some of these great benefits as well when you are playing the strategy games.

Hey, I agree with the points you've made.

I would like to add one thing. That these skills will develop and plateau at some point - typically individual. At that point games will no longer help your development but mostly serve as entertainment.

I know that League of Legends is a very vague strategy game, but I've noticed some differences in what I've been doing in real life since I've been playing it. I really recommend playing LoL if you like action/strategy games. If you want to sign up please us my refferal link, because it helps me out. http://signup.leagueoflegends.com/?ref=4fdf77f052b...
