We've written more than a few times about this or that study pointing out ways that video games can be helpful to kids -- whether by getting them more exercise or in improving the ways they think. Now, here's yet another story about how video games are being used to help kids with attention deficit disorder concentrate more. If you hadn't figured it out by now, the point we're trying to make with all of these examples is that blaming anything simply on "video games" is silly. Video games cover a wide variety of applications -- and depending on who is using them and how they're using them, the impact can be very different.
