Video Games You SHOULD Be Playing!

Amid all the controversy over the video game craze which has swept the world, there really are games which are actually good for you! Unfortunately, these games get a bad rap because of games that glorify criminal behavior, and this leaves a mark on the entire gaming industry. Why not put video gaming technology to good use to teach our youth positive values? Let’s take a look at some of the video games you (and your teens!) should be playing.

High-End Graphics Aren’t Everything

First, a word needs to be said about our passion for lifelike video graphics that make playing a game more realistic. Unfortunately, games like Mortal Kombat and Grand Theft Auto are the exact types of games most parents resent. Yes, they are a ton of fun, but do they instill values in our youth? Conversely, games like Cart Life don’t have great graphics, but they teach young people about being empathetic. It was originally released as a Windows game but now is available as an open-source download and so it can teach players a bit about coding as well as how to be compassionate to those in need. Again, the graphics are highly old school, but the game teaches invaluable life lessons. That’s its key selling point.

Sports Simulation Games

Then there are games like Diamond Mind Online that help budding young players gain a better understanding of baseball. This is a baseball simulator that has high-quality graphics but enables you to build your own fantasy league team. Whether you are trying to learn the sport or simply see what it would be like to put all your favorite players of all time on the same team at the same time. Not only is it fun, but it teaches what good sportsmanship and a team mentality are all about. In fact, if you are in HR, this would be a great team development activity when working on building a team mentality in your workplace.

Games That Teach Logic and the Art of Reasoning

If there is one thing today’s parents lament, it would be that our school children simply aren’t being taught about logical thought progressions and the art of reasoning. While this isn’t exactly the case in all schools and in all school districts, it is a common thread among parents in groups online. They wonder how their kids are going to fare in the real world if they aren’t prepared for reasoning through issues they are faced with daily. Here, it is suggested that Sim City is a good choice for this purpose.

In the end, the type of game to offer the most fun while being played solo or with a group might be the Diamond Mind baseball simulator above. This type of sports simulation game has the best of all worlds. Not only does it teach critical reasoning when building a roster and developing plays, but it teaches the art of good sportsmanship, compassion as well as what it’s all about to be a valuable member of a team. So, you see, there really are great video games you can play devoid of crime and gore. You just need to know where to find them.
