It's good to see that video games are being judged on something slightly more than just their propensity to cause violence, for example, as teaching tools. But Science Daily has done video game developers no favors by titling their article in this way.
This also is a good argument for the types of games to be used in game programs at libraries. Such as collaborative or competitive (but not violent) games.
