Video games create new opportunities for socialization, connect people and help form communities. In this article, we will look at how computer games help in communication and how they make positive changes in our lives.

Many believe that computer games only distract people from really important activities and a person becomes addicted. However, this is not the case if the balance of real and virtual life is observed. It is important to keep track of what and how you play, so as not to become a gambling addiction. For example, many players use game boosting to spend less time in the game. In the classical sense, boosting games is the help of professional players with the leveling of heroes and the passage of complex content in games. But it can also be other options - for example, you can buy fifa coins for playing FIFA 23, or get some kind of legendary weapon in Destiny 2, and so on. Boosting helps players get what they want in the game without spending too much time and effort.

And since we are talking about FIFA 23, why not use the example of this game to make out the advantages that gamers get in video games?

Advantages of Gaming

Playing FIFA 23, like other video games, can provide several benefits and advantages for players.

The benefits of video games in communication

Creating Shared Interests: 

Computer games can bring people with common interests together. Regardless of age, gender, or social status, games allow people to find a common language and share their emotions. They create an opportunity to discuss game strategies, share experiences and solve problems together. This is especially useful if acquaintances and friends do not share the player's interests. Accordingly, the player can find like-minded people in the game and communicate with them.

Online communities: 

Computer games stimulate the creation of online communities where people can communicate, compete and collaborate with each other. Multiplayer games help you meet people who share the same interests as you. You can chat in the game chat, on the forums, or on the guide pages. You can even get into a team of professional gamers and boosters if you have good enough playing skills.

Development of communication skills: 

Games require active communication, coordination, and interaction with other players. This contributes to the development of communication skills, such as the ability to listen, express one's thoughts, and respond to commands from other players. These skills can also be transferred to real life. This will help you at work, in school, and just in communicating with other people.

Strengthening friendships: 

You would be surprised to know how friendships can start in an online game chat! Moreover, some game fans even find partners there and get into a relationship. Games allow people to spend time together and strengthen friendships. You can use online games as entertainment with friends, or you can find friends right in the game - you will already have at least one common interest. It is also a great way to have fun at a group party, as there are many games in the world that can be played by several people at the same time.

Playing video games can have both positive (for example, improve literacy for children) and negative effects on cognitive abilities. Of course, it is important to remember that not only games develop abilities. Reading literature, playing sports, watching videos, and just talking to other people can also help. However, it goes to show that games shouldn't be demonized just because someone once said that games are bad. It's important to take all the warnings seriously, but don't deny yourself playing your favorite video games.


As you already understood, games have a positive effect on communication and cognitive skills in general. So, have fun with video games, and remember that they can be a valuable tool for improving your communication skills in the digital age.
