English is the main language of gamers around the world and a Swedish study published in 2014 revealed that children aged 10-11 who play computer games are better at English than their peers.

“A game like ‘World of Warcraft‘ requires a child to be very active in their use of language as there is a lot of role-play involved. The same goes for ‘Grand Theft Auto‘ and other similar games of both” – said Liss Kerstin Sylvén, associate professor specialising in languages at the University of Gothenburg and co-author of the study.

In addition, “girls tend to play games to a lesser extent and the ones they do play are more social, like ‘The Sims’ as an example.” – said Sylvén

To support the argument of Mr. Sylvén, I uploaded a few images:
