Video games of course give better brains and brain flexibility however, the use must be kept limited and adequate for children. The strategies used in vedio games consequently gives promotions to children caliber.

Just like anything else, video games can be a good thing in moderation.

When I was a kid, I used to love to play video games, and now I work as a programmer. I have to say, video games helped me understand how computers work, and without my gaming experience, I doubt my programming skills would be at the level they are today.

Each and every Video Games has different effect based on how it was created. But serious games are formed to teach and give learning to users. People however are confused on the real benefits of this video games, hopefully in the future these controversies will be over.

Wow! Some great information, but I have to agree with happyface- each game has a different effect. Not just how it was created, but also the effect on the child. Even the game preview on the webpage looks like it can be a great tool but for the most part games should be limited to help improve the lesson and not become the lesson. Everything in Moderation! If this proves to be successful more research will still be needed, but I'm glad to see people exploring the field.
