It is inevitable – video games reduce the level of stress and depression that we have. Period.
Whether the older generations hate them, some of the new ones can’t stand them, and part of the researchers would do everything to prove that this is wrong, it simply can’t be wrong in any way. People that are practising and have involved gaming in their lives can definitely prove that this is a correct statement, but if you want to be even more certain about this fact, there is plenty of evidence these days that it’s correct.
There is definitely some disagreement with this statement, and there are studies that are in favour of both ways of video games, but as times go by the studies bend and take a curve towards how positive video games are, that they are encouraged in school, while in some of the schools around the world there are classes where you can play games with your colleagues.
When you think of video games, you would probably imagine a bunch of teen boys on the couch playing games way out of our reality like fighting zombies, riding dragons and flying in in space or being violent and screaming all over the room. These prejudge are incorrect from the fact that there are less violent games nowadays compared to when video gaming was starting to be a thing.

No one will do things they don’t enjoy, and video games are definitely not enforced by anyone.

If you want to know which are the most played games up until now, the answers lie in DotA, League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Heroes of the Storm and Call of Duty. World of Warcraft is the game that reached and stayed on the top for the past 10 years until recently, while PUBG is the game that is sailed to climb the top and be there for a long time as it seems.
Give them all a try and leave your stress behind!
