I will be discussing mainly the three scopes which support to argue and allow people to get beyond the typical ‘‘good-bad’’ dichotomous thinking to have a more nuanced understanding of the digital game effect and the insights from developmental, positive, and social psychology combined with other learning mechanisms in playing digital games as well as how far it is possible adopt it to real-world psychosocial benefits scenario will also be examined in this article.
