Hi, im Alex and I chose the topic of Gaming for my Healthbuzz. This topic interests me a lot. I myself play lots of video games and im sure others do too. It seems in these times people are spending less time outside and more time on screen so I wanted to learn just what is happening when you game. I researched about the positive and negative effects of gaming and was surprised to find more positives than negatives as well as lots of things that people think about gaming that aren’t true. A few positive effects that I found were. 1. Gaming reduces stress and depression as well as acts as a pain relief for not only mental but physical pain, by acting as a distraction. 2. FPS (First Person Shooter) games actually improve eyesight due to the amount of attention needed to play them. Of course there were negatives that included. 1. Gaming can be VERY addictive and take away from other things such as homework and sport. 2. In violent games violence is usually rewarded meaning you get good stuff for being violent and it can send us wrong messages. I think now that gaming can be more good than bad for you IF played and handled correctly. Thank you for reading.
