    Nice. What about like the comment before me, any research on if games are bad for you? I can understand gaming companies presenting positive research to support their cause but there should be negative research to balance it out and be fair. But I like your article and please keep publishing. You guys are doing a good job and I will continue to follow this blog. Thanks.

    One of the oldest and timeless puzzle video games that has stood the test of time is Tetris. I remember during my younger days when I played Tetris with my friends all afternoon in our family computer. It surely gave us a lot of fun while stimulating our brains as we solved the puzzles.

    People tends to see only the negative side of playing video games. But again, we can’t simply generalize everything without knowing the whole situation. I always encourage people around me to try puzzle video games, or if they refuse to stare at the screen, they can try the old school way, like sudoku. Thank you for this post to spread the positive side of playing puzzle video games.

    I agree with the fact that tetris is a wonderful game. I do also enjoy playing the electronic version of mah jong tiles. As it can be when playing tetris, it’s quite thrilling when you finish the game and all the tiles are gone because you did a wonderful job. It’s kind of like the idea of fighting crime, if the tiles are villains.

    My mom finds it annoying and immature to see me play puzzles. She said that games are for kids and that I shouldn’t be playing any more of it since I’m way past that age. So I told here there are benefits to doing puzzle games beside the fact that it is also fun to do so.
