Psalm 92:14 - They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green.
You walk into your house and find your son and his best friend once more playing video games. It feels like that’s all your son does these days, but did you know that adults play video games too?
Many video game companies, in recent years, have been creating games with adult players in mind. The complexities of the world that's created within the game can for a time make the gamer believe that they are living in a different life than the one they are in reality.
But being in that world may not be such a bad idea as more evidence shows that with the right game you can actually help increase memory, such as in the case of World of Warcraft, while others may help patients who've suffered from a stroke as indicated in the article, “9 Ways Video Games can Actually be Good for You,” on huffingtonpost.com.
So the next time you see your son playing a video game sit down next to him and ask if you can play, too. This might blow your son’s mind, but when you tell him it might help you think better and have fun while doing it, he might just hand you an extra controller and welcome you into game land.
