It's fine to play games but only people who are trying to fool themselves would say that there are any kind of substantial health benefits.

Advantages gained in terms of mental dexterity and problem solving are sorely undermined by the fact that many gamers (sure, not all) prefer to spend the majority of their time playing games rather than engaging in other activities. A lack of physical health undermines mental advantages. And regardless, playing games is hardly a more productive mental activity than engaging intellect through reading.

Great read though!
