    I fear that Videogames can also slow, reverse mental development.

    Awesome! I'm addicted to videogames so that's super cool. Metal Gear Solid is one of the greatest titles ever!

    What's this? An article about video games that doesn't blame them for every negative aspect of the youngest generation? Unexpected, but welcome.

    I know for a fact that playing games like World of Warcraft, League of Legends, etc. that require rapid decision making, extensive planning, and optimization have played a large part in my mental development. I mean, even simply memorizing my 30+ keybinds in WoW and knowing precisely when to use them is a mental exercise, in itself, which is something that not very many nay-sayers like to think about or admit.

    Even basic J-rpgs have their merits, with well-developed storylines and characters. I would honestly say many video game scenario writers have better writing ability than most ordinary book authors.

    I fear that Videogames can also slow, reverse mental development.

    And you base this conjecture on absolutely nothing.

    Games are good for you.

    And not just video games -- Board Games also serve to reinforce social interaction that has been sown to have beneficial impact on mental functions.

    Play More -- Play Often.
