Why Should I Buy a Brain Training Game?

When the Nintendo DS first came out one of the underdog successes of the amazing console was it's brain training game.  This brilliant game kept people occupied for hundreds of hours, me included, and it really does help you improve your own mind.

Brain Training exercises help keep your mind in top condition.  By using several different techniques the brain training games can help keep your mind sharp, and even put off dementia.

Since the early success of brain training games for the Nintendo DS dozens more have been released.  Some are more user friendly than others, although with the aim of these being brain training, maybe the more difficult the better. 

The beauty of brain training games is that they often have plenty of angles to keep things fresh and interesting.  Simple games such as Sudoku, crosswords, and maths games are incorporated to keep you challenged.  As well as the more obvious games such as these, there are plenty of pattern recognition games, speed tests, and more to keep your brain on it's toes and help make it as sharp as it used to be!

Why you should use Nintendo DSi Brain Training Software

Brain training games for the Nintendo DSi and original DS really do help keep your mind sharp.  Everyone knows that if you do not do things regularly you can forget them. This does not just apply to the big things, but simple things too.

Many people find their mental arithmatic skills drop several years after leaving school, others lose their ability to spell.  Despite all of this, many people do not recognise just how close they are to future senility.

Brain training games are a godsend. Most of them will test your mental ability in several ways, and if you do a full, daily, mental workout, you may be surprised at just how much sharper it makes you.  Before I used brain training software I was stumped with things as simple as long multiplication, after several weeks of using brain training software however, my mental agility returned to something I have not seen for about 10 years!

My Experiences from Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi Brain Training Software

The Nintendo DS became a huge success thanks to the brain training game, which saw the handheld console become a hit with adults and children alike.  Personally I love the daily challenge which Brain Training provides, it constantly challenges my mind.

Brain training is a great tool, which has shown me not just my strengths, but my weaknesses too.  I was surprised at just how poor I was at some aspects of the game training.  This allowed me to work at my weaknesses, and improve my poor performace in some areas to improve my overall mental reflexes.With Nintendo DSi brain training you will be surprised at just how much your mental capacity increases on a day to day basis, and you will find it a fun addition to your day to day life!

Brain Training on other Platforms

Brain Training is not just limited to gaming platforms, you don't even really need to buy a specific brain training application.  Instead you can try stretching your mental abilities in day to day life, work out taxes in your head, play a little sudoku, and maybe do the occasional crossword to help improve your cognative skills!
