Bad news for those of you hoping the Xbox can be blamed for your children being terrible — a new study by Michigan State University has found that playing video games can lead to an increase in creativity in kids.
What? an article actually praising games and stating they can increase creativity O.o well I never.
Just watch kind/type of games you give your kids and you should be find...in the gaming department.
Yea, and they also help with hand eye coordination, critical thinking and memory.
Give'em some Lego blocks too.
Creatively violent... Trolling aside, I think this is great for the gaming industry that there is concrete evidence of its positive impact. I think many parents of young kids who own touchscreen phones/tablets know this to be true if they let them use it for some time.
my son has been gaming since he could hold a controller and hes 8 now and he is way more creative and able to figure things out than his buddys.gaming is an awsome learning tool.
My son will be 3 in a couple weeks & he is actually pretty damn good at Little Big Plannet. Freinds & family love watching him play its cute & makes him think.
