While this comes as no surprise to me, as I have always had a firm belief that games, especially FPS' are good for honing your hand Eye co-ordination.
However its good to see outcomes from the study such as this:
It supports previous research that video games can improve "fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, visual attention, depth perception and computer competency," the study said. - quoted from reuters.
At the same time they are also cautioning parents that this did not mean to let your children play video games for hours and hours.
However I firmly believe that children should play Computer Games / use the internet for 45minutes a day, (not Playstation, Xbox or WII however)
as this teaches more than can be fathomed or discussed here.
