Many students are getting confused between gaming and studies. So we thought why not give you our perspective on this topic. In this article, you’ll get to see our viewpoints and our efforts as always are to help you make your own decisions.
Let’s talk about academics before coming to gaming. I know we all have one thing in common in our lives. We are all evaluated on our academic performance from the age of 3 till 21. You’re brilliant if you’re the class topper. If you’re struggling or just about passing then you’re given labels such as “average” or “failure”. Even if you’re great at other things outside of academics. Be it arts or music or sports or even gaming. That tag of a failure never leaves you. All these are time-waste.
We keep hearing this from everyone else Studies or Gaming?
If you had asked my parents, they would have had only one answer
“Their son is wasting his time and gaming is only a time-pass activity”. But maybe today that answer will be different.
Gaming can improve your studies?!
Wow! Ever thought of this? Have you ever noticed that your life’s first academic lesson you received through fun and games?!
Be it those ABCD toys or social skill-building games. You start your academic journey with toys and games themselves. Then as time passes, this divide keeps increasing.
Have you heard the saying,
“Padoge likhoge banoge nawab… kheloge kudoge, banoge kharab”?
People kept telling you to study, Don’t pay attention to sports or games. These proverbs were built because boomers and the older generation believed in them. And till today people believe in it.
But outside of India, the gap between gaming and studies has reduced a lot. There are many institutions that teach you new languages through games Be it English or programming. You can learn a lot while playing. There are many institutions that teach you how to build games.
In fact, Esports management has become a subject today which is taught in universities. Along with playing your games, you could rank well in these subjects too. Let’s take a look at the updates from the world of esports before continuing the main story.

How Games Can Help Your Studies
There is one more thing which although is not taught as a subject in school, you do get to learn it often Didn’t get it? Okay, I’ll give you one more hint. If you learn this, then no matter what your career option is, you will perform brilliantly in it. I mean, discipline! I believe that playing games for a student and for a gamer to study are both equally important.
After a day of studying and listening to long lectures, gaming is a good way to keep your mentality fresh. The teamwork of a student improves a lot after playing games. On completing missions and targets in the games, students get motivation. They get a positive stubbornness which becomes a great tool in fulfilling their academic goals.
Similarly, for a hardcore gamer, studies are very important. A good student can become a good gamer. If you’re a good student, then your time management, your discipline, your motivation everything will be on point. You need all these in your gaming journey. If a gamer is disciplined, consistent with his grind and keeps moving forward with his goal in mind then he will definitely see results.
