Gaming Is A Positive Element in Life [Infographic]

Gaming Is A Positive Element in Life [Infographic] | Minecraft Summer School | Scoop.it

"Playing video games for an extended period of time, or, well playing them at all, will rot your brain. At least, that’s what we’ve been led to believe. Actually, those fighting against gaming see something a lot worse than simple brain rot. To that particular establishment, video games are responsible for just about every social ill you can think of, especially violence."

If you are interested in seeing statistics that show that gaming has positive influences check out this infographic.

Fantastic infographic on why gaming is a positive element in life. With the massive increase in casual gamers gaming is becoming a positive aspect of even more peoples lives , and why wouldn't a brand want to capitalise on this increase in gamers by having their own branded mobile game developed . This would could have millions of users postiviely interacting with a brand - a no brainer really! - HK
