lots of video games involve reading. its a bit less work on the imagination due to the graphics, but the reading is still there. This part does seem to be going away as voice acting is becoming more and more prevalent
video game improve the following skills
obviously not every game is great for these things. but then again, Twilight and fifty shades of grey exist.
seriously, video games are tremendous tools when used properly.
ps: reading a book is worse for your eyes than playing a computer game
Thanks for clearing this out. Now I know.
I was trying to be polite. It should have been worse.
In all seriousnes trying to justify or add value to playing video games, I will not be able to understand: social skills???problem solving, critical thinking.
I guess I'll just have to disagree, keep limiting my teenage kids to 1/2 hour a day, and make sure they develop their social skils, their problem solving abilities and their creativity through other means.
