Those who like video games do not need convincing about how fun it is to play. Real fans would take their favourite titles wherever they go, which, undoubtedly, has its charm. Surprisingly enough, PlayStation Vita games could have additional benefits, even in the overall health department.
In general, video games have been proven to have a positive effect on such aspects of human health as hand-eye coordination, motor and unique skills, cognitive abilities, planning, multitasking, logical thinking and more. Some of them can be put to a test easily by taking a simple perception text quiz or similar to find out if you have an analytic mind. On top of that, games have additional advantages in the form of convenience and reduced costs. Although it may seem a little odd, there are also a few health and wellness benefits to be considered, even if it’s not rocket science.
To some extent, and acknowledging limitations, we’re fortunate as most of you already know as we can play virtually any game genre there is on the PS Vita. So, it can be said that the Vita serves a similar purpose in developing positive skills that focus on the brain. Therefore, PS Vita games might be just as useful for keeping the most important organ in shape, even more than regular PC or console titles. Entertaining puzzles and riddles, engaging point and click adventures, and challenging RPGs can also help your increase memory capacity, which gains more significance as we grow older. The good thing is that, contrary to many complex computer positions, age isn’t much of an issue in the mobile world where many compelling propositions are targeted for everyone.
Anything we enjoy doing instantly puts us in a good mood, which affects our well-being in the long run. However, the mobility factor here allows us to have a moment of relaxation whenever there’s a possibility to pick up the Vita no matter where we are at home or on the move. Therefore, Vita games let us escape from worries and stressful situations. And while they probably won’t cure any illness, they can be helpful in dealing with anxieties and unwanted waves of negative emotions. Some of them, like a personal favourite JRPG of mine Sword Art Online: Lost Song, even allow us to share with other people, oftentimes, proving to be more effective in building and maintaining relationships in online communities than social media.
