Your child spends some time playing online games on his computer and you don't really like it ... especially since most of the online games that interest him are social games (or social games). that is, games that are played by several people. And now, social games, you really dislike it!
And yet, these social games have many advantages for the player! Yes, psychologists have even made serious studies on the subject!

Admit, if social games have a negative image in your eyes, it's because you fear that your little screen gamer will become a horrible, associable geek who stays for hours in his room in his pajamas in front of his screen instead of discovering the real one. life with real friends!

But if these social games bring together so many users, can we not wonder if they would not have beneficial effects for the player?

 

 

The benefits of online social games

 

1- Socialize during interactions with other players
A social game is designed to be played by several people and is of no interest on its own.
Just like in real life, your child will meet new people and make new friends! Of course, this will happen by interposed screen but your child, through his game character will have to implement social codes that will define him with other players in the community!

 

2- Analyze, study the other to understand the opponent
In many social games, players compete for territory or whatever.
As a result, your child will have to play according to others and learn to be a strategist and to listen to others in order to guess how they will act and therefore how to counter them in order to win!
The player will therefore have to take an interest in the other!

 

3- Learn to work in a team
Knowing how to work in a group is an essential concept in professional life.
And it is clear that teamwork is not emphasized enough throughout our children's schooling, at least until senior year.
Network games require alliances to develop one's territory, for example, and team spirit is therefore very important.

In addition, network games are all community-based and seek to involve the knowledge of the player who is there to play but also to share!

 

4- Express yourself, assert yourself


A teenager who feels bad about himself can thrive through a game character who matches his or her vision of himself, freed from the complexes of adolescence! A character who wins, who finds success, or an avatar that he has created and who dares to express who he really is!

He will exchange more readily, be more comfortable with the players, whether they are male or female!

 

5- Promote yourself
Online social games make it possible to strengthen self-esteem… To pass levels, to see that one is better than his boyfriend… So many elements that will boost the esteem of a teenager who is badly in his sneakers and who has well need to be inflated!

 

Ever since the computer got popular kids have been asking the question, "Why are games so important in learning and getting better at?" Games are fun and they provide some basic cognitive and emotional skills that we can use to learn and interact with other people. We all know that games have always had a social purpose, and today that purpose is even more important. We know that most kids like to play games with friends or family and that games make us human beings by allowing us to connect with others and giving us a chance to socialize. That is why parents are paying more attention to what their kids are playing and how they are interacting and this has been a long time coming.

 

Another interesting question is how do games make us strategists? One way that this comes about is because games require problem solving skills, and we all have a inherent interest in mastering complicated problems. We are not born with these skills, but we develop them as we go through life. We can see how games can help us in developing these skills. For instance, chess is a game of strategy and many professional players say that it is one of the most difficult games to master.

 

But do we actually need to master chess in order to understand how do games make us strategists? One thing that a lot of researchers have found is that people who enjoy chess actually perform better at real world scenarios than those who do not. That means that even if you do not have any desire to become a grandmaster player, you could benefit from learning the strategies of the game and applying them to your own life. Just remember that no matter how complicated a game may be, there is always a strategy to it.
