The holidays are here, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve. This is always a special time of the year with office parties, company dinners, friends throwing house parties, and all the time that we spend with our families. However, there is also all of the rushing around with the Christmas shopping list. The hassle of the crowds at the malls, and in some regions there is a weather problem on the roads. Also the planning and scheduling of all the holiday activities and buying new dresses, shoes, etc, etc for all those events.
The bottom line is that the holidays can be a joyous time, but also can bring a lot of stress and possibly some domestic quarrels. This is where video online games come in to relieve that stress or at least reduce it. A recent study of the millennial gamers consisting of one thousand gamers showed that 55% play video games in order to reduce their stress levels. And 47% think that playing video games can increase their happiness even when away from the screen. Half of the respondents also claimed that online gaming is a form of fantasy that breaks the pressure of their daily lives.
Of course there are the single player games that do not require an internet connection and then there are hundreds of high adventure, fast-action multiplayer games where you would be competing against people all around the world.
Which are best for you depends on your type of stress and your other preferences.
