The Many Ways Kids, Teens, Adults and Society Can Benefit from Video Games

Share Article

Video Games can improve lives and benefit society in ways never before imagined. The benefits of gaming have been shown in studies and reported on, yet most of these studies never reach many of the parents, teachers, and others that should be aware that video games are much more than just "games". Jennifer Comet Wagner hopes to remedy the situation with her new book, The Gamer Generation: Reaping the Benefits of Video Games.

Why are so many people missing out on the vast benefits that video games have to offer? For at least a decade many studies have been completed and articles written showing a variety of benefits from gaming. However, parents, teachers and others that should be reading them, only see the articles about violence. Jennifer Comet Wagner decided it was time to get this information in the public eye and wrote the new ebook, The Gamer Generation: Reaping the Benefits of Video Games.

Wouldn't it be great if parents learned to game with their kids and stopped worrying about video games? Would students benefit if teachers and school administrators understood the vast potential of gaming in education? Are all doctors and healthcare workers aware of the many advances of video games in healthcare?

"Finally, the voice of reason! I love Jennifer Comet Wagner's approach to this controversial topic. Wagner gives amazing insight for parents and adults who want to not only understand how gaming is affecting this generation but also how to embrace it." --Vanessa Van Petten, Author of "Do I Get My Allowance Before or After I'm Grounded?" and

“I wrote The Gamer Generation to summarize the research, studies, and articles on the positive effects of video games and to offer resources for those who want to pursue the topic further. Readers will learn that video games not only have many benefits for kids, but for people of any age and for society as a whole.” – Jennifer Comet Wagner
