Producing Better Surgeons

If you might think you want your surgeon to read up on the latest medical findings instead of playing games, you might want to reconsider because small incision specialists found that compared to their non-gaming counterparts, those who practised for more than three hours per week made 32% less mistakes during practice procedures.

Additionally, surgeons could implement a surgeon simulator to increase their ability to complete surgery to the highest standard while becoming more knowledgeable.

Overcome Dyslexia

Some reports point to issues with concentration as being a central component of dyslexia. After sessions of games heavy on action, one study has shown that dyslexics enhanced their reading understanding.

According to researchers, the constant change of environments in modern games will require an intense focus. In 2013, Italian researchers discovered that action video games actually can improve the reaction time and attention abilities of dyslexic people.

Decision Making

Some people may have a faster processor than other people,  capable in a split second of retrieving information and allowing the game to run more smoothly without lagging. For others, the gaming capacity could be enhanced because new data is continuously displayed during gameplay, players are compelled to adapt quickly.

Players who were immersed in fast-paced games were 25% quicker than non-players in responding to questions about a picture they had just seen.


It has been shown that gamers using systems that integrate the whole body to monitor on-screen activity are more interested in celebrating wins with their peers, which runs counter to the lack of contact between people with autism who are often present.

A research also found that for those with the condition, sharing space with multiple players can also contribute to increased social contact. Furthermore, modern games can provide children with autism an opportunity to gain attention and share interests with their friends and family.
