From gaming arcades, television consoles, handheld consoles, mobile devices to online gaming, video gaming is undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainment these days. But do you know that playing video games can help to boost your cognitive skills?

Here are 3 cognitive benefits of playing video games that you should be aware of:

Improves Memory - A gamer typically has to understand the ins and outs of the game structure. To achieve this, the gamer has to read and comprehend the game instructions and tactics. Making efforts to memorize/remember the gaming instructions throughout the whole entirety of the game is required in order to be able to progress to the next level. That’s how videogames help in improving a gamer’s potential to remember.

Playing video games improves memory and concentration, and enhances multitasking skills.

Enhances Multitasking Skills - There are so many details to take note of when playing video game. For example, a gamer has to remember to keep a lookout for oncoming enemies, when to launch an attack, keeping an eye on the number of lives and constantly monitoring the level of ammunitions left. With frequent video gaming sessions, the gamer’s ability to multitask inevitably improves over time.

Improves Concentration - Video games, especially action and tactical games require full concentration from gamers. Gamers have to achieve a certain score to be able to move on to the next stage of the game. By making the player focus his/her entire attention to the video game, it helps improve player’s concentration level.
