Do games teach us about life? I agree with that. I think games teach us a lot and can help us in real life situations. Social games help us in communication, logic or strategic games develop our cognitive abilities. Overall, games give us information about ourselfs and make us think about self-improvement.
First, games help us to understand people better. A lot of games are social, they require from two to even several tens of players. In team games like football or basketball people have to make decisions together, understand intentions of each other, even predict player’s behavior. That improves their communication skills. The more you play in games, the more you understand behavior of other people. You easily resolve conflicts, better understand work partners and even faster find common language with children.
Second, games train our mind. Logic games like chess requier systematic analysys, prediction of partners turns and strategic thinking. To illustrate, i want to say that playing chess in childhood directs me to the mathematics. When i see that math isn't more difficult then my favorite chess, i stopped to worry and start to learn it deeper. If i hadn't play chess, i would never be an engineer. Therefore, game helped me a lot in real life.
Finally, all games give us information about ourself. Do we fear obstacles or enemies? How do we manage our time? How smart are we? You can answer all this question just playing a game, you don’t need to spent extra money and go to psychologist.
For these reasons, games teach us how to communicate with people, how to be smarter and even who you are. Furthermore, some people say that that life is a game too. If you want to know more about life, play games.
