I will be the first to admit that I know nothing about the gaming world. So, you might be asking yourself, why are you writing this article about gaming then?? Well, I thought I would share my novice thoughts and let you all share with me whether I have some of it nailed and where my misses are with the fascination with gaming
Gaming seems like a great way to feed the competitive nature side of us. It challenges us to reach new levels, learn new strategies, and it’s quite the accomplishment to advance to new levels. All of this seems like it provides great entertainment for us.
And there’s so many choices. No matter what our genre of choice is, there is a game out there for us! How cool is that! Not every pastime can tout that expansiveness.
Motor Skill Enhancement
After watching several gamers in my life, it seems like gaming is also a great way to enhance one’s motor skills. Often at a fast pace you are moving the gear stick (forgive me if I have the terminology wrong) at a fast pace to maneuver across the landscape on your screen. This can’t help but increase dexterity and fine-tune motor skills.
While gaming is oftentimes conducted alone (but not always) it seems like it also is a great way to meet other people. I know of many gamer meet-ups, clubs, and conventions. It seems to have its own following that is extremely dedicated to learning the latest and greatest. That sense of belonging is something we all strive for and to find like-minded people can be priceless.
Hit or Miss?
I am confident that I am greatly understating all the value that comes from gaming but that is where you come in. What did I hit in this article? Alternatively, what did I all miss in it? What do you get out of gaming? Is there more beyond fulfilling your competitive streak, entertainment, enhancing your motor skills, and meeting fellow gamers? Do tell!

In our lifetime we will experience success, failures, and milestones. These are the things that make up a good part of our life and we should recognize each of them as they are all . Throughout my life I honestly did not recognize any of these, but I did focus on my failures mostly although […]
Second chances are always appreciated in our lives whether it’s a second chance at a relationship or a career or to rebuild. I can honestly say I have gotten a few second chances in life especially after my Suicide attempt in 2007. At that point in my life which I was in my mid-twenties I […]
Are we becoming a cashless society? When was the last time you used cash to pay for something? The reason I ask is because it seems to me that these days we are increasingly moving towards becoming a cashless society. The continuing threat of Coronavirus has no doubt contributed in accelerating the demise of notes […]
