The very awesome Jane Mcgonigal (Game researcher and designer) said at her TED talk that amongst the "superpowers" that avid gamers have are urgent optimism, and blissful productivity. These really connect with me. No one is more optimistic in a really productive way than someone who dies 30 times getting through a Dungeon in Demon Souls for PS3. Her quote is "the desire to act immediately to tackle an obstacle, combined with the belief that we have a reasonable hope of success." I think she nails it. And gamers are so productive. We are actually happier working for 22 hours straight than we are just simply relaxing. The kick is that well designed games make hard work feel productive. They make sure you're rewarded and that things are relatively fair and that the task is challenging but not impossible. Life does not treat us quite as well, but I very much think that these qualities that we build and strengthen by playing games can be applied to real world problems.

I voted for YES.

If I play games, that means I wanna rest for a while and get some fun from the game. Otherwise why should I play games?)

Good within reason. Of used for relaxation, competition, mental exercise or just plain fun, then yes. If used as a wrong means to escape something else, then no.

There are plenty of games that challenge your mind - if you do not think out a strategy given your circumstances you will likely fail.

Me personally, I like to learn a lot and play a lot.

Depends on the game. Depends on the person. I do not beleive all people benefit from gaming hence there are addicts that play wow that have lost there family, there house and there job etc. What do we mean by saying a game challanges you and to what extent or requires you to use your mind? I think games can be challanging to a degree but not to the same degree as a philosophy book. So any talk to promote gaming must be takenwith a pinch of salt considering how much of the youth have stopped reading and spend all there time gaming. Are they really smarter or more stupid.

Gaming is fun and a nice way to chill out. Gaming shouldn't be blamed for anything.

i think no, but that doesnt mean theres anything wrong with doing it.

people choose to spend their free time differently and watching tv, playing games, and most other hobbies are in the same boat.

Games at the end of the day are just another form of media which can make you think, laugh, cry and, like anything else, can be abused

Well, they certainly help me get relaxed after a hard day at the college, and generally allow to forget about the harshness of life, but at most time i rather spend time with me real-life friends, if I can, cause games can turn You into a weird no-life, hah

For one it involves children to interact with technology....that's a bonus right there. And if you don't keep up with it, you'll get left behind.

For adults? Definitely the puzzle solving uses parts of the brain that wouldn't normally get used.

Whole life is pure pleasure, and all this various thing around us is just add-ons for better and more interesting life.

It is simply point of view if you see or not any benefit from whatever,

and if you enjoy playing good game you certainly have a huge benefit from it, benefit of enjoying a excellent moment of life.

Hmm maybe this is why I'm stressed out all the time... Too much free time..

Also,I'm convinced that playing games as I grew up made me smarter.

I go back and look at the games I played... Donkey Kong country, megaman x, final fantasy tactics, starcraft custom games,Dota and off topic, but magic card and I amaze myself that I was able to beat such games and memorize the skills, mana costs and my intuition that I have or developed.

Also,I think I learned a ton about productivity as mentioned above.. Specifically playing my hunter in WoW and how to farm and stuff..

Lots of real world applicable skills I learned..

And I'm surprised at how often ill come across a word that I have no idea what it means, then I'll remember a magic card and the picture and what it did and be able to make an educated guess... And I learned that stuff over a decade ago..

i use games to relax and take a break from work, just sitting and engaging in a good story really helps me relax on stressful days.

Games should be fun I dont think people should get too stressed over them.

Games are a good way of relieving my stress. They immerse me in their world that helps me relax and enjoy the moment.

I want to say say yes, since there are a lot of games that makes you use your brain (i.e. chess).

But honestly, no. Seems more like an excuse for me to waste time when I can be doing some more progressive.
