Is Gaming being taken too seriously?

A recent study, "One week playing violent video games alters brain activity" comes under discussion as MWEB GameZone takes a hard look at the argument.

MWEB GameZone writer, James Wernich has been gaming for decades and draws on his experience to counter argue.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sobering stuff :) I like that you mention that you encourage your son to play games. Games are as much a community activity as it is suited to the individual.

sheesh, gamezone is full of great opinion pieces today!
I to am an avid fan of playing games with my kids, and like EVERYTHING in life there is use and then there is abuse. Guess its all about finding the right balance.

This is a very interesting article to be honest. It is quite the conundrum that "game" and "serious" are two variables that are supposed to have cohesion.
Aside from the fact that I'm pretty sure that there are many things that if you did them for a week, would change your brain activity - doesn't just apply to gaming.
