Good news for video game addicts. A recent study conducted in York University in the UK among 100 students proves that video games help children to keep their brains active. Also, skilful gamers have been found to be more intelligent and fast thinkers with better common sense. Kids playing video games are also better equipped to learn new languages. The study will soon be published in the Canadian Journal of Experimental Psychology. So, the next time you keep your eyes glued to that tiny set for hours, and your mom scolds you, assure her you are on your way to becoming a second Einstein.
