> "What good can possibly come from sitting in front of a video screen?"
Actually, lots of good things can come from playing video games. Here are a few:
- improved eye-hand cordination
- faster/clearer understanding of abstract geometry
- release of tension/anger (kids are FAR less likely to be violent in school by playing games [there have been many studies])
- knowledge of the latest graphics technologies
seriously, some of those are priceless. i kill people in a vitual world... so now i wont have to serve a life sentence! \o/
