[A collaborative post – all thoughts are my own.]
I love playing games to reduce my stress. But, because playing games involves sitting in front of a screen, it is often dismissed. However, there are many benefits of playing games; gaming can be positive for kids. Games require a level of interaction and skill from the player, unlike watching television, which is more passive.
Most games require a strategy to understand and then work within the rules. Many games teach cooperation, group work, and scenario-based learning. All games offer nice rewards. People play games because they are captivating and reward us when we succeed.
There are many educational and fun games for kids from Playsorg. Personally, I like to play adventure or survival games because they make me use my brains and make fast-decision. As they constantly adding more games daily to keep expanding it, you may find their newest games even over the weekend. You can pick your favorite category in the footer of the website; there is category-based navigation for their game collection.
I used to download games and install them on my computer. But, in other to keep myself focus on work stuff, I decide to delete them all and prefer to play online games like this. Playsorg offers you hundreds to thousands of free games across every genre. You can choose which games you like and play directly in your webs browser with no app downloads. That is very easy and convenient, isn’t it?
Whether you’re playing online games as a way to pass the time or because you’re procrastinating from working, we all know that gaming can be a lot of fun regardless of the scenario. But did you know that there are many benefits of playing games even for kids? In fact, your kids can improve their brains by playing games. If you’re wondering what kind of games will help your kids develop certain skills, keep reading.
Improve their problem-solving
One thing that I love about playing games is a challenge. Some games can be mindless, but many games like survival games, puzzles, and mysteries to managing virtual cities – offer kids the chance to take on a problem and work to find a solution.
Some researchers say kids who play games improve in three areas: planning, organization, and flexible thinking. Most games like Santa Girl Runner, which require fast reactions and decisions. But don’t get too excited about this. It’s not clear that these gaming problem-solving skills carry over into daily life. And there’s no evidence that so-called “train the brain” games can improve real-world skills.
This is an exciting Christmas-inspired endless running game where players must guide the daughter of Santa Claus to collect gifts and gold rings in the North Pole. Along the way, Santa Girl must dodge obstacles like spiked blocks, high columns, and gaps on the ground.
It’s not really hard to play with, you just need to press the button up to jump and the bottom to slide. It requires concentration and fast reactions, otherwise, you won’t be able to dodge obstacles along the way. I managed to hit 900 points before falling out from the gaps on the ground! I’d love to play this game again on the weekend.
Boost their reading skills
Studies show that kids who play games may get a small boost to their reading skills. This is true even for kids who struggle with reading, and even when playing action games. This may happen because kids need to figure out text instructions to play. Kids who are reluctant to open a study book may rush to read a website or forum to get the latest on their favorite game.
The Parts of Speech Quest Final Review game is a good game for kids or English beginners. The wicked dragon has yet again laid siege to the Kingdom of Lingua yet again. And once more the dragon has stolen the king’s treasure and made off with it to a tower. Enter the Dragon’s Tower and use your combined skills as a master of the parts of speech.
The game itself will ask questions whether the certain word is a noun or verb; or adjective or adverb. You just need to pick the answer to fight the dragon, open the door/way to another room, or turn on the light. That’s why it’s called the Kingdom of Lingua, right?
Show their creativity
When kids are young, there’s a lot of space for imaginative play, from LEGOs to dolls to make-believe. But now is the time to play online games. One of the benefits of playing games for kids is a chance to continue imaginative play.
There’s also some evidence that games encourage creative thinking. There is Unpark Me: Parking game your kids can play to show their creativity. This is a parking puzzle game where you must help clear a space for the red and white car to leave the garage. The caveat is that all the other cars in the space can only move parallel to where they’ve currently parked. Clear a path by moving as few cars as possible.
You can start with the beginner level and complete all the tasks. Move the other cars so the white car can leave the garage by moving your cursor. I used to play parking games in the past and to play this again in my 20s, is become part of my weekend self-care.
Improve their eyesight
A 2009 study conducted by a group of researchers determined games can actually help your eyesight instead of hurting it. Study leader Daphne Bavelier determined that playing action games boosts an ability called Contrast Sensitivity Function. In other words, it’s the brain’s ability to tell the difference between changes in color. This is the same ability that helps people be able to drive at night.
I found this Lion Guard Protectors and because my zodiac is Leo, this is a really fun game for me. This is a minigame compilation set in the universe of the Lion Guard, the spinoff series of the beloved 1990s animated masterpiece The Lion King. Join Prince Kion, son of Simba, and his motley crew of friends in the Lion Guard as they defend the Pridelands and rescue its various denizens.
Before playing this game, select a member of the Lion Guard to play a game centered on them. I pick Kion the Fiercest, a lion (Panthera leo)! You just need to use your mouse to navigate your chosen animals. You need to watch out for hostile animals like Janja’s hyenas, save as many animals as you can, charge and use special powers to give you a big boost in-game.
When you play games that put to the test your reflexes, logic, attention, and other cognitive abilities, you improve your productivity and develop new skills. But, as always, pick games that are fun for you, and don’t get discouraged if you don’t achieve the best results.
