Gaming

According to a study by the University of Oxford, playing video games will not affect your well-being.

To explore how they feel, players were asked about their emotions in daily life, including levels of happiness, sadness, anger, or frustration. The researchers also relied on game time data provided by the developers of seven video games, from the simulation game Animal Crossing to the open-world car race The Crew 2.

According to the study, the effects of video games, both positive and negative, will only be noticeable if the gamer plays more than 10 hours a day. These findings contradict a 2020 study at the height of the pandemic by the same University of Oxford, which then concluded that video games may be beneficial for mental health, in contrast to this one which reports no link.
