Video Game Surprise!

Can playing "Madden" or "World of Warcraft" encourage you to be more engaged in public life? Believe it or not, yes.

If you play video games, you might want your parents to read the report from PEW Research Center. Gaming may not be responsible for kids growing up to become anti-social hermits. In fact, this study shows that all that game time could actually make you a better citizen. More and more studies are showing that gaming is actually quite social. Attitudes towards games and gamers is often based on assumptions and emotions. People either project their own failings or profess views that seem correct, but are in fact not supported in the research.

What are your thoughts?
