We all know that gaming is good and easy way to spend time. Even scientific research confirms that. Did you know that it also improves you in various different ways?
Lets see on CS:GO example what are the benefits of playing.
1. Get communication skill improvement
CS:GO community has approximately 1,3 billion players around the world.
In any game you need to communicate to get better result. CS:GO is perfect example. When you plant is getting pushed or you have valuable information on enemy placement, it is better to engage in a group, not alone. Have you been in situations when whole team is pushing A, but you are alone in empty B site after successful rushing? Yes, it needs to be communicated.
Even toxic conversations improve your ability to deal with those situations. You can ignore those people or confront with some arguments. In case your teammates are good, it is perfect opportunity to get to know them better.
Get friends and play better consistently. If they are talking in different language - it is opportunity for both of you to improve your language knowledge.
When someone is shouting 'RUSH B!', you know you are in right place. Join rush - it is always fun. Even if it fails.
2. Strategy and Decision making improvement
Strategic thinking improves your brain. Fast pace CS game forces you to make decisions very fast. Perfect example here is CS:GO.
Shawn Green from the University of Rochester after his studies had nothing but good things to say:
“Action video games are fast-paced, and there are peripheral images and events popping up, and disappearing. These video games are teaching people to become better at taking sensory data in, and translating it into correct decisions.”
Rushing B is also an art. It should be executed correctly. It is pure pleasure when correct nade work and teammate actions allow to get B site in first 15 seconds. Do not forget that defending strategies are needed after as you will be rushed by other team.
3. Blow some steam after a hard day
Gaming with your friends lets you relax after a hard day. Sure, it’s about using your skills but it’s also a great way to hang out, socialize, and build friendships with people around the globe or from around the corner. What brought you to gaming to begin with? It’s fun, right? So, why not to make few more virtual headshots? From my point of view, deathmatch mode suites this task better. You dont need to worry about your position or strategy. Just run and shoot at every enemy you see. This mode is not about getting more kills, it is about catching your opponents in most uncomfortable spots and positions. Get tazer. Your mood will skyrocket after getting frags with it. Knife if also great opportunity to make fun.
In any unclear situation Rush B!!!PS: always remember about A site.
