Am I the only one not missing hockey as much as I thought I would?

and I'm talking about things other than educational value. like the list of other benefits I provided. I never said video games had more educational value than books. Though I would argue that problem solving and critical thinking skills are very important forms of education, and both are better learned through the interactivity of a video game than through simply reading a book. The average book is definitely more educational as far as learning facts and whatnot; but the average book doesn't do much to develop reaction times, visual awareness or dexterity either.
I'm not trying to badmouth books. they are great. but video games without a doubt have some developmental advantages that books do not. that's all I was saying. I'm sure books have their own advantages too.
