Gaming is good for your mental health!

It’s safe to say that if you’re a gamer, you already know the positive effects that gaming can have on your mental health, from increased confidence to a release from the stresses and worries of everyday life, but it’s always pleasant to see a publication not usually associated with the pastime agreeing, rather than demonising the industry.

Praising gaming for helping men to avoid loneliness in a fantastic new article for Men’s Health, Sean O’Neal suggests that the hobby is a brilliant way for people to stay connected and create real, long-lasting friendships, regardless of distance and borders.

Has gaming brought you closer to other people?
