    You always know that you have something cool and exciting to do when you're back home. You know that you have more choice than people who only read books or watch TV series. There're dozen of worlds in which you can get involved. That's pure magic

    ...you can say the same about crack waiting for you to get home, however I would hesitate to list it as a "benefit".

    Games have always been a social outlet, stress relief, and mind/memory improvement in every culture throughout all history.  As is all art.

    Its a cheaper hobby than going to the Bar. Safer too. No such thing  Gaming While Intoxicated. Id be a repeat offender.

    Just because I'm a gamer doesn't mean I drive a Honda.

    Teens/young adults can get in alot of trouble with other things...Video games are relatively harmless comparatively.

    it depends on the game, some are even better than movies, others work as great stress relief, yet others can save you from a wild night at the bar without you even considering that you've lost something. 

    I myself play video games because of the capability to exceed the limits of our reality and immerse in worlds where magic, numerous races, and multiple worlds exist solely for you to discover. A bit of a god complex I'd say but it is what it is.

    Also, I'm quite bad at sports, but I'm really good at EA's FIFA (with the hopes that FIFA 20 will provide me with yet another medal to brag about) xD

    What is the benefit of doing anything?  If you are older, have a stressful job and a family, it is a way to recharge and be a little more stable to face the horrors each new day brings.  Its my me-time.

    In layman's terms, playing video games directly affects and impacts regions of the brain responsible for memory, spatial orientation, information organizations, and fine motor skills. The study also reinforces the claim that, like exercise, playing games for as little as 30 minutes a day, can improve your life.

    I would say the benefit is the social aspect and sense of community. Also filled out the survey

    if they are still collating the information 2+ years later i would be mildly shocked to say the least.
