BTW, just in case you think I might be a little crazy in pursuing my research and activities via this avenue, you might want to read the November 2013 Huffington Post article, 9 Ways Video Games Can Actually be Good for You. Three of the suggested ways video games may be making your life better are:

  1. Immersing oneself in video games can be good for brain functionality and vitality ~ German researchers concluded in 2013 that playing video games induces structural brain plasticity, serving as valid therapy for patients with mental disorders and diseases such as schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder and Alzheimer’s.
  2. Playing video games can shape core components of human cognition and mental flexibility ~ British researchers in 2013 concluded training in action video games can increase the speed of perceptual processing. Such training would particularly benefit those individuals struggling with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), complications with normal aging, and traumatic brain injury.
  3. Playing video games can slow down the aging process ~ According to a 2013 study by the University of Iowa, playing games that titillate the brain may help slow the degree of mental decay associated with the natural aging process.
