Video games boost brain power?
Interesting story on NPR about a study showing that video games boost brain power and increase response time. Also mentioned they can help kids set goals and feel empowered. Fascinating. This especially reminds me of studies I heard of a few months ago showing that boys reading skills drop the more video games they play, here's one of many articles about this.
This sounds very confusing. Are they good or bad? I guess like everything, the answer must be a little of both. Personally, I would like to have a well-balanced child who has great response time, but also loves reading. So, I guess I'll have to figure out a way to set some limits.

I agree with you and am not convinced by the studies. I went to a conference a couple month ago and attended a talk. The difference of the response time between the control and the video game-playing subjects are very small.
At the same time, I am concerned about the "dropping of reading skills" because of intensive game playing. A story from recent issue of Mind Scientific American shows that reading can enhance empathy; and sadly, more and more young people are reporting reduced empathetic level towards other people.
