Video games are good. That seems to be the mantra from TED talks these days. TED talks bring together some of the brightest thinkers around today to discuss issues ranging from science and technology to sociology and video games. Speakers such as Jane McGonigal have discussed the potential benefits video game play can have those that play them, and society at large. Paul Rozenboim, a Visual Communication student at Bezalel Academy, incorporated points from McGonigal’s TED talk, as well as Daphne Bavelier’s TED talk, Your Brain on Video Games to create a fun video simply titled “Video Games Are Good.” The video serves as Rozenboim’s final thesis project, and lays out the potential benefits video game play can bring. The video’s tongue-in-cheek style mimics informative, black-and-white documentaries from the mid-20th century. Give it a watch below!
