The lights are on
Video games aren't considered the healthiest hobby, but there are some surprising benefits to playing games. No, this isn't a joke; go laugh at something else.
All Time 10s put together this interesting list of ten reasons why video games might make you healthier. So keep sitting on your couch eating Taco Bell. As long as you're playing video games you should be fine.

I remember my parents telling me as a kid that paying video games will make your brain melt. They still think that now. Showing them this video will certainly turn some tables around.
Yea i knew video games were good for me that's why I stopped playing outside.
Number one made me feel like a complete badass.
Now this is what I'll teach my kids.
I knew there was something I liked about being a gamer.
I'm a jet pilot yeah! lol
Coooool. Especially how our reflexes are nearly as good as a fighter pilot's. That is awesome.
We will render the rest of the population obselete! Mwahaha!!
That's great news! I play video games all the time, so it's a good thing that it's helping me rather than hurting me. This also explains a few things i've gotten from video games. For example, I learned a TON about fish and insects from Animal Crossing: City Folk.
Ss if that last one was correct, then a fighter pilot who plays video games would be a freaking ninja!
This list is actually pretty damn amazing.
Another great "video game benefits" from Mr. Reeves!
I already used your last article in the November issue in my research paper, too bad I didn't see this until yesterday before I turned it in. :P
i find this seemingly interesting.. i must say some game specificas are in here.. and no game has all of these characteristics in one full game haha.. but this is interesting and fun to know indeed :)
This has just validated everything.
Hahah nice. This video made me smile. The only bad thing about it was the awful MUSIC in the background.
