People turn to video games for comfort in uncertain times, but they always become a force for good | Instant News

For those who have never played it, video games make a comfortable scapegoat. Such people will tell you that the game is a threat to society – views that are aired are triggered by certain press sectors exemplified by the Daily Mail which, in 2004 alone, ran the famous front page splash entitled: ‘Murder By PlayStation’ and ‘Tires Are An Evil Game’.

The reality is very different, the game can and is a force for good. The truth is that games are used in education. They improve mental health – treat cognitive impairments and improve their social skills with learning disabilities. They have physical benefits, too: as well as improving hand-eye coordination and reaction time, they are used in physiotherapy and occupational therapy, and can be prescribed to help with pain management.
