About the harmful effects of video games on the younger generation has been said a lot of frightening words. Where is the truth? Where myths? This is difficult to understand. But every historian is certain: everything is new always taken the general public is bad. If you believe a recent scientific survey of researchers from the University of North Carolina, video games have a positive impact on the emotional state of the elderly.

In a survey of 140 people aged 63 years. 61% play video games from time to time, at the time, like 35% of older people at least once a week to entertain yourself digital toys.

Those people who play video games at least occasionally, have a higher level of their emotional health. Those who ignore the video game, more tend to have a bad mood, and even depression. Just note that the results are based on a subjective assessment of respondents’ emotional state.

According to Associate Professor psychologist, lead researcher Dr. Jason Elleyra (Jason Allaire):

The published results of the study indicate a relationship between interest in games and a high degree of emotional health. Now plans to investigate whether digital games can improve the mental health of older people.
