A platform where there are plenty of multiplayer games available on different devices. Despite this, playing video games can still have a positive effect on gamers. Daphne Bavelier - a brain scientist and cognitive researcher - states the good with games. Games can help develop the learning capabilities, the attention span, and even vision.

It aids in some core body functions but it can have negative effects as well if abused.

A study, conducted in 2013, provides more evidence of this. Max Planck Institute for Human Development and Charite University Medicine St. Hedwig-Krankenhaus. It states that playing games increase activity in specific regions of the brain. These regions were responsible for memory and strategic thinking. A study was also done by researchers from Oxford University. It showed that playing Tetris reduced flashback episodes of post-traumatic stress disorder patients. Gaming giant Nintendo also produced games that help maintain or improve mental agility. These are crucial for aging people or those that have Alzheimer's disease. Games can cause serious health problems if abused. Such was the case with a woman in China, who lost vision in her right eye after playing mobile games for a whole day.
