To Play or Not To Play?

We all know that video games stimulate the mind in a variety of ways. Some play video games for their enjoyment, but today times have changed. People like video games because it introduces family fun and entertainment along with a feeling of achievement and exercise. A lot have dedicated some part of their lives to getting fit on a game console or setting goals to boost their self esteem. There are many benefits to playing video games as of course there are some unhealthy habits as well. I would like to start off by saying some games help you to make decisions and be precise about a lot of aspects in the day to day real world we live in. I would also like to add that it is one strong stress reliever in at least 1/3 of people who play. Video games is not just a mind stimulate anymore its way more than that, it increases your hand eye coordination and the better the video games get the better your coordination one might think. It even opens a whole social atmosphere, people who have a hard time bonding with someone are more likely to open up to someone they don't know in the real world but come close to in the virtual realm. Video games also teaches you to lose, and hopefully teaches you fair-play at the same time. In video games failure is not a big deal. Winning gives you bragging rights to all other players which in turn gives all of us a feeling of power and comfortable bliss. So leisure time is well spent on any video game console that is able to make us relax and find our own vast fantasy or social creativity. Individualism is found amongst many epic games that make you feel like you are a part of something bigger when we actually are. Being imaginative in ones self can show all of us who find enjoyment in the virtual world to come together as a whole and create something out of nothing and make it shine with humankind. Most of what we create in our minds is dreamed and created with success we one day can bring virtual reality to life. So the more people who play, the more creators we have, the healthier we become. Video games are part of something made for the eye of the beholder. We make them the way we see fit,and we shape them and mold them to life for our enjoyment. We should all have an out of this world experience and video games is definitely one of them.
