Does gaming improve mental health? Hell yeah man! It stimulates the mind. Like really, it takes your mind off things. And sometimes people, you know, play games to not think about the hardships in life. Yeah, most definitely.
You know what, I think there's a fine line. Because some people say gaming is a waste of time. Instead of playing games, you can actually go and fix your life in the real world. But I think sometimes it's alright to spend a few hours just to socialise and have fun. As long as you're not doing it too much.
