This study shows that playing certain games, especially Minecraft, can help create more creativity for players than just watching TV, reading books as parents think.
Many people now have bad prejudices against young people's gaming, especially parents, teachers, etc.
They often think that playing games is only harmful, not giving useful knowledge, social skills or creative abilities like watching TV or reading books. However, scientists have recently shown that playing games with certain games can help increase the player's creativity.


"Playing games may not be as bad as we always think and certain games can help increase creativity," the researchers said.

Specifically, in a recent study published in the Journal of Research and Innovation (Creativity Research Journal). Researchers analyzed 352 participants to compare the performance of Minecraft game play with watching a TV show and reading to see which methods will help participants become more creative.

After 40 minutes of playing games or watching TV, reading, participants will be asked to draw a creature from a world much different from Earth so that scientists can measure the level of creativity. More humanoid creatures will score lower while those less like humans will get good grades.


The results are amazing when participants play Minecraft - a game that allows players to explore unique worlds and create whatever they can imagine to be the most creative when they draw creatures. less human. Those who watch TV and read books are less creative when their creatures are quite similar to humans.

Thus, this study shows that, playing certain games, especially Minecraft, can help create more creativity for players than just watching TV, reading books as parents think. Indeed, Minecraft has been included in the curriculum of many countries around the world. This is to help children learn in creative environments. "Minecraft can help create creativity," said Douglas Gentile, a professor at Iowa State University.


In addition, the researchers also experimented among participants playing Minecraft. They are divided into two groups, one group will be playing Minecraft according to the instructions. And the other group will play the most creative Minecraft possible without anyone giving instructions. As a result, the Minecraft team under the instruction has a much lower creative index than the unstructured Minecraft team.


There is no clear explanation for this finding. But there may be several reasons why the Minecraft team is instructed to score lower. "The instructions may have changed the player's driving dynamics. Instructions can create limits on their choices while playing, leading to less creativity." The main researcher, Jorge Blanco-Herrera said.
