GAMERS MAKE BETTER HUMANS

According to scientific studies, gaming improves everything from focus and hand-eye coordination to problem solving and

leadership skills.

 

That means every hour you spend gaming is technically making you a more effective manager, a safer driver on the road and a better parent to your children.

 

So whether your job involves performing life-saving surgery, operating heavy machinery, leading a country or just leading a team of regional sales associates, remember this: you’re not gaming because it’s fun, you’re gaming because it’s the right thing to do.

GAMER PILOTS ARE SAFER PILOTS4

Gaming is scientifically proven to increase focus, reflexes and hand-eye coordination, and when you’re in control of something travelling at 800mph, every split second matters. Thankfully there’s a new breed of pilots up there, busy logging thousands of hours to keep you safe.

FACT: GAMER SURGEONS MAKE 32% LESS ERRORS1

In real life, there are no respawns. So before you or your loved one undergoes invasive surgery, make sure to ask if your surgeon is a hardcore gamer.

FACT: GAMING IMPROVES LEADERSHIP SKILLS​2

Great leaders aren’t born, they’re made (through hours and hours of hardcore gaming). In fact, multiple studies have shown that gaming makes you better at managing teams and making quick decisions under pressure. Looking to up your leadership skills? Consider getting an MBA in wrecking sweats.
