Member Testimonies

“It was a great pleasure for me to attend this event. I want to thank you for the perfect organization and for taking the effort of make all this happen. To get that much of detailed information about Spring was kind of an eye-opener for me in terms of understanding the principles of a framework. Personally I moved a bit away from development throughout the years, but it is still of great interest to me to be informed about what’s going on in the .NET world. I could not think of any better way to get such valuable information first-hand.”—Klaus

Gaming and The Spirit Of Kaizen

pro gaming

In gaming, as in life, continuous improvement produces a lot of positive results. People benefit from getting better at what they do in many different ways. Success in personal and work or professional life is often tied to a person’s ability to become better at anything they set their sights on.

Kaizen, which means “change for better”, is a beautiful word that captures the essence of constant and continual improvement. It has even become synonymous to a Japanese productivity principle which many companies from around the world use to create a workplace culture that aims to become better at getting better.

The spirit of kaizen thrives in and outside the work environment. In gaming, you can see this kind of mindset in many recreational and competitive gamers who seem to be driven by improving their skills and scores in every game. It is rare to find anyone who enjoys playing who does not want to be good at what they do. Even those who play on their own try to beat their old scores. There is no resting in your laurels when it comes to playing a game. You always try to outdo the competition or the previous version of yourself before you got better at whichever game you choose to play.

This is one of the reasons why gaming in itself can be a source of continuous learning and development. There are always new ways to do things. And old scores can be beaten and surpassed in many ways. But it is something you have to work on. And getting better in itself is an art that is learned, honed, and developed with constant practice.

Why Playing Video Games is Good for Us

Did your parents stop you with your gaming sessions when you were a kid? Yeah?

It’s because they think that it’s just a waste of our time. What I actually see is, Video Gamers are much more intellectual than you think. There’s a lot of benefits in gaming.

So, without further ado, here are some of the best benefits that these games can give us.

Improves Problem-Solving Skills

Boosts Creativity

Games make our imagination run wild! A study found out that playing video games helped us boost our creativity. How awesome is that? So, play video games as much as possible during free time!

Improves Mood

Are you angry or frustrated? But why? Well, you don’t need to answer that. But playing video games can help you relax and even improves your mood! Let the annoying boss feel your anger! After some repetitive slashing and dodging, you’ll feel more comfortable and this will lighten up your mood. Not until the boss kills you again!

Helps us Socialize

No, not all gamers are socially awkward. Maybe some of them, but not entirely! There are some studies showed that playing video games help us become more social. Well, communicating online requires no effort at all! All you have to do is type what you want to say and there you have it. A new friendship has been born!

Is my list enough? Do you have anything you can share with us? Feel free to share it! Better show this to your parents! They might even join you on your next quest as soon as they read this. Well, playing games is also a good family bonding. So, there you have it!

Aren’t you getting tired of playing games all day? If yes, then try going outdoors! You can eat at a restaurant, watch a movie, or visit a theater. Speaking of the theater, main art royal oak offers the best location for the night out and restaurant! So, visit it as soon as possible!
