A new study has just discovered what we already know: playing the game makes you a happier and healthier person!
V questionable since all we seemed to do was drown or set our sims on fire... but #SCIENCE.
Psychoanalyst Steve McKeown says that playing games like The Sims creates a more well-rounded individual. he told UNILAD, “It is important to remember that immersing yourself in your imagination periodically is actually a very positive form of escapism and is considered important for our brain functions as it can expands our creativity.
“It allows the gamer to express a part of their personality that may not have known if they hadn’t played. Albert Einstein once said ‘creativity is intelligence having fun.’”
He continued, “Our consciousness is very adaptable and allows us to create an opening to different paradigms of reality every time we focus on alternate versions of life through our thoughts.
“With the assistance of life simulation games such as Sims we can enhance our inner experience. Without escapism we would simply burn out. It’s the main reason why we dream at night when we sleep as it’s our minds way of disengaging from the state of conscious living.”
