I will add, in my best movie-phone-moderator-man voice, that there is no such thing as "the average book" or "the average video game". They by definition must be evaluated on their own merits unless you generalize by category.

For example I'd agree with the statement "most war novels are more [insert good-for-your-brain descriptor here] than most war video games where you run around blowing people's brains out."

And with: "most video games or web site apps involving math or legitimate problem solving are more [insert good-for-your-brain descriptor] than most salacious smut novels, political hatchet jobs, and alien conspiracy theory books."
