1. We’re more likely to set ambitious goals for ourselves after we’ve won in a game
Gamers often feel a sense of accomplishment after they have succeeded in a game, especially if it was a difficult one. This makes them more ambitious about their careers or personal lives, as winning a game can give them a sense of confidence and a much-needed ego-boost. They feel more willing to take risks and try new things. This post-game “rush” can have several positive effects on their real lives. It can make us more enthusiastic about our everyday lives, and make better plans for the future. In short, video games make us happier and help improve things in real life.
