Play more video games to boost happiness, say Oxford scientists

Nov 17, 2020 12:15 IST

Setting the record straight, Oxford University researchers have found that playing video games can boost your mental health in a study that analysed actual gameplay data for the first time. Players of Animal Crossing and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville were studied and it was found that those who played more games tended to report greater “well being.” 'Play can be a positive activity for people's mental health and regulating video games could withhold those benefits,' lead author of the study told CNN.
