Gamers discussion 001: Kids & gaming

See also

The pros and cons of playing video games often gets questioned in today's society. There are heated arguments both in favor and in opposition of video game usage for children. I participated in a panel of four which convened to discuss the benefits and disadvantages of children playing video games. The panel consisted of a parent, gamers, and myself who comes from an education background and has played video games for many years.
