The current article aims to educate and teach our children about gaming. It also provides some tips and clues in order to enhance one's critical thinking skills.

Many parents distrust video consoles and don't want them in the house because they are afraid that they will damage their children's performance at school. However, the benefits of videogames include improved powers of concentration, creativity, memory, languages and teamwork.

 Videogames can make it easier to learn educational contents and develop cognitive skills. There are endless videogame characters who awaken early vocations and teach history, geography and mathematics to millions of schoolchildren and adults around the world. Such as the legendary Lara Croft with her adventures on Playstation that have done more for archaeology than many textbooks ( a game that truly marked me as a kid ). Who said that video consoles don't stimulate the intellectual abilities ?

  Nowadays, the video games industry switched into a mature sector ( relying on statistics ), admired for its technological muscle, innovative capacity and its well-developed vision. it's no surprise that videogames dominate the audio-visual sector. Particularly with hits like Fortnite and Minecraft, which have more than 139 million active players. The fever for this videogame has crossed borders and is already rattling giants like Disney.

 The benefits of videogames have also reached education with game-based learning. This teaching method uses beneficial aspects of videogames to transmit knowledge to students. I truly believe that it breathes life into education by transforming learning into an enjoyable, thrilling game without boring lessons. Students assimilate and retain information almost without noticing ( the way we proceed in class - subconsciousness - ).

 Students or players are the main characters in the story and their success is rewarded with medals, extra lives, bonuses, etc, which captures and keeps their interest in learning.

 To conclude, learning-based video games could be of major importance to societies through the mediation of children. Especially if they seek to teach players specific subjects such as languages, or to train professionals like police officers, pilots, firefighters or healthcare personnel, among others.
