7 You Can Apply Video Games To Real Life Situations

Zombie apocalypse

For instance, I play this online game Goodgame Empire. It is bases in Medieval times. You have your own castle, army, etc. , and you can join alliances. Alliances can go to war with each other, so while playing the game, you are learning how to avoid/cause war, and ways to win them. Also a guy made an excellent video on World of Warcraft, where he said that playing the game will help you understand the economy better. You can check out the video yourself. His YouTube username is TheGameTheorists. He also made lots of other great videos as well. - Alpha101

8 Your Eyesight Can Improve

Most people say that it will ruin your eyesight, but this is no true. That is only true if you have all of the lights out. if you have the light on, and take regular breaks from playing, your eyesight might actually improve while playing video games! - Alpha101

I have to agree to this comment because every single person says it is bad for you eyes. Thanks for something to tell my mom.

Your eyes improve because when your playing you get focused on the game and you just look at it. Sometimes you might think real life is a video game and sometimes that's good.-Crythekiller21

This is great for the 'eyes going square' argument
