During the summer dry spell of games, what games do you like to revisit if you don’t have a huge backlog like me? If I have time I like to revisit some of the older Mario, Pokemon, Zelda and Star Wars games for nostalgic reasons.

Gaming One Hour Everyday = Success in Life

Jane McGonigal over at the Huffington Post wrote an interesting article on how gaming can help improve quality of life. In her article, she explains that around 97% of boys and 94% of girls under the age of 18 are regular gamers showing how important gaming is to our lives these days. She goes one step further and makes an attempt to argue that gaming is a way to lead a successful life. While I would tend to agree with her views that gaming is “good for you” in that it is a great form of recreation and a fairly decent social activity, I wouldn’t necessarily believe that it makes people more successful. Regardless, this article is an interesting read and a fresh take on the traditional “OMG gaming kills children” views published in mainstream media.
