Do games really make kids smarter? Source: "Gabe Zichermann: How Games Make Kids Smarter." TED: Ideas worth Spreading. N.p., n.d. Web. 10 Jan. 2013. Well, according to me playing games is one of the best ways to train your mind. In our today world kids or I can say the G generation train our brains by doing a lot of multi tasking through video games, which helps us increasing the speed of our brains and the time of reactions physically too. Equally, all the shooting games help us improving our eyesight and aiming capabilities which helps us in physical sports too such as baseball, cricket, some Olympic games, etc. Additionally, there are still some people who believe that games are just waste of time and create physical issues and some where they are correct because gaming addiction can be extremely bad for your health cause of not doing enough physical exercise. Therefore, gaming can be really everyone if there is no addiction.
