Video game skills for the professional world

Video game players will quietly list their favorite hobby on their resume. However, on the contrary, according to Lisa Ferrer, it should be part of acquired skills or even previous experience. Because if the video game still carries this image of children’s leisure, researchers in the field of neuroscience have noticed that this leisure has nothing passive at the brain level.

Especially since, as she recalls, studies have shown that games like first-person shooters are great for training impulsiveness control, concentration and attention. Minecraft is now widely used in the classroom and the results show that students are better at solving complex problems.

The MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Role Playing Game) Final Fantasy XIV created a community that promotes mutual aid, a sense of community, empathy, or the ability to manage large groups. These abilities are part of “soft skills”, cross-functional skills that are not related to work, but to all areas of life. Now, more than ever, recruiters are looking for candidates with these skills.

So, knowing this, it seems more and more logical that video games should be seen not just as a mere hobby, but as entertainment. It provides the training needed in all professional environments.
