New study shows that a little gaming might go a long way
A study published in Computers in Human Behavior has shown that a group of 48 subjects decreased their levels of stress after playing Mario Kart, having first performing a Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test (PASAT) in order to stress the applicants out.
Operating on the theory of self determination, researchers observed the applicants and observed how they felt after being tested while monitoring their competence, autonomy, and relatedness. While they were only tested on single player mode, this isn't the first time a study has shown that video games can be good for stress.
Hopefully we end up with more good news like this, nothing sounds more relaxing than coming home and playing a round of Mario Kart.
