Why You Should Let Your Kids Play Video Games

When I was a kid video games were largely uncharted terrain for the majority of adults. While parents bought their children a Mario game or a Legend of Zelda game for their birthday or Christmas, they didn't really know what was happening on the screen when their kids sat down in front of that little grey box in their living room to play them. As is typically the case with any extra-curricular activity children indulge in that doesn't appear to benefit their health nor their education, video games inevitably became vilified. They were blamed for children not going outside, and parents were put in the stocks for not taking these things that made their children happy away from them and not forcing them to kick a ball/do their homework instead.
