Videogame Narratives Can Promote Health

“Videogames have potential for health promotion and may be especially promising when attempting to reach youth. Story immersion (transportation) is a mechanism through which a [videogame] narrative influences players’ cognition, affect, and, potentially, health behavior . [It] complements behavioral change theories, including the Theory of Planned Behavior, Social Cognitive Theory, and Self-Determination Theory.”

Experts Born From Failure

“Consistently and overwhelmingly, the evidence showed that experts are always made, not born . . . The development of genuine expertise requires struggle, sacrifice, and honest, often painful self-assessment . . . You don’t improve [in] a game [if] you get only a single chance . . . You don’t get to figure out how you can correct mistakes.”

Video Games Good; Social Media Bad
