Games are good for kids

— 1:24 AM on July 23, 2001

According to an article over at the Sunday Times, computer games are actually good for kids.

COMPUTER games are giving a generation of young Britons a level of co-ordination and powers of concentration equivalent to those observed in top-level athletes, a government-funded study has shown.

Youngsters who play computer games regularly but not excessively also tend to have more friends and be better adjusted than those who make do with traditional pastimes such as reading and television.

Take that, Charles!

Of course, like with anything, the article points out that moderation is the key. Your 60+ hour/week Evercrack habit isn't doing wonders for your social life, at least not in the real world.
