But there are some stereotypes and false claims attached with it. Some consider it being reason for aggressive behaviour of youth leading to crimes.

An online discussion platform “Qutee” has invited different gamers seeking their opinion regarding influence of games on their lives, and the opinion will really “shock” you.

Qutee has released a report named “gaming and you“. Over 890 gamers were surveyed mostly between 18-34 years of age . Out of the many benefits of video games one is improvement in the mental health which is admitted by 40% of surveyed gamers . 95% of them denied that playing video games leads to violence and other antisocial behavior.This comes as a serious benefit for country like America  in which one out of 5 is being affected by mental problems.

Another benefit is making more friends.

Around two thirds of gamers admitted making friends through games sharing common interests. It is just like platform providing multiple benefits.People usually opt gaming during their leisure time.Playing a game provides a good icebreaker, common ground, and a way to spend time together.
