While this talked about direct brain effects. They forgot the fact that some Video Games have changed people's lives because they had a strong morale message. So they have the same good things as other mediums and much more.
Another fact about games is that they are FUN!
Good to see some positive things.
Glad to see something like this. It really shows some of the positive effects of video games. Not to mention they're pretty damn fun.
I'm also glad they put in that last part about playing in moderation. It's essential to balance out your life with other things that can also help improve you in other ways. Admittedly, I'm still trying to find that balance, but it helps knowing your favorite hobby can have some positive effects.
And now to spread the word
this is pretty cool...im glad to be a gamer but also keep it in moderation...
Its also important to note that most games help develop critical thinking skills.
Always good to see the good things.
Also, it keeps the geeks off the streets. :|
