Are you trying to decide whether or not you should get into gaming? Are you wondering what the good things about playing video games are? Then below, I am going to give you 8 reasons to be a gamer !

8 You Will Never Be Bored

When it comes to free time, what do you do? Do you sit there and try to think of something to do? With games, you will not get bored. I will admit that sometimes, you will be in the mood where you have free time, yet you do not want to play games. For those times, you should have other hobbies, such as drawing, painting or just watching TV.

7 You Get to Watch out for the Latest Games

I always like watching out for the latest games. It can get exciting. For example, Halo Reach comes out in September and I have been looking forward to that for awhile. You see, when you are a gamer, you have new games to look forward to and anticipate.

6 You Get to Pawn People

Oh yeah this is always fun! The more you play, the more you get to win. When you play online, it's always funny hearing the other getting angry because you are obviously better at game than them. Of course, if you're not good and you're the one getting pawned, don't give up; it takes practice.

5 Good Coordination

I believe that gamers have good coordination. In fact, studies have been done that have proved this. Gamers are better at doing a lot of things.

4 Better Problem Solving Skills

I read a study awhile back that stated that gamers have better problem solving skills. This is because in a game, they have to constantly think quick. Gamers are fast thinkers. Neat, right?

3 It's a Way to Take Your Mind off of Things

I believe games are great because they are a good way to get your mind off of things. They are much better than going out and drinking or doing drugs to get your mind off of things.
