There are gamers from all sexes and ages. So some players spend most of their free times by playing online games. But do online video games have positive effects on us?

Socializing : The most important benefit of online games is social interaction. Popular online games have gamers from all over the world. So online games are good for meeting new people. Even you can find friends from other countries. Players learn how to establish a relationship and maintain it. For most of online games, teamwork is very important and that allows you to be part of a team. Helping people for missions or other things affects our behaviors and this way we learn helping people in our daily lives.

Also there is a competition atmosphere in that games and I think this is good. Because in my opinion, there should be a little competition in our lives. This competition help us to be successful. Just like EA Games said, "Challange everything!".
Online games offers you to stay in touch with your existing relationships. You can challenge your friends and family in a game while talking about the day and other things in your life.
