Submission + - Video games affect behaviour positively. (themedguru.com)

cbiltcliffe writes: A study done at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah has determined that playing video games with a parent positively affects behaviour in girls age 11-16.

Boys apparently don't get the same effect, but girls "were less likely to suffer from depression/anxiety or aggressive behavior."

Even the authors of the study, however, couldn't help but taking one jab at games, stating that "co-playing (at least with girls) may be one way to stay involved with adolescent activities and to negate at least some of the negative effects of playing video games."
