The Benefits of Gaming

Did you know that online gaming can be good for your wellbeing?

There are many social opportunities available in multi-player games. Players had:

  • A greater sense of social identity (i.e. how a person views their identity within a group setting) with other players

  • More social capital and social confidence was gained from both the close and extended friendships

    Both of these led to a lower sense of loneliness.
