Awesome benefit of violent video games
As it turns out, playing violent videos games can have a positive effect other than just blissfully wasting one's time away. Apparently, violent video games are used in virtual reality exposure therapy
to help treat post traumatic stress disorder, especially in soldiers returning from combat.
They basically force people to relive their memories or fears in a safer environment and by doing so, those people are desensitized to their traumatic memories. It can help with traumatic experiences such as combat, phobias, and car accidents, among other things.
Whoever said video games were pointless?
