New research from Oxford University has found that time spent playing games is positively associated with wellbeing. This is not surprising when considering that the top 5 reasons why people game are to have fun, de-stress, stay challenged, pass time and keep their minds active. There are also many educational benefits to gaming including promoting critical and creative thinking, problem solving and collaborations skills.
Today, more people today play online games than watch TV. With the rise of the metaverse and virtual communities there has never been a more important time to engage with children to discuss inclusive, healthy and safe game play.
