PLAYING video games increases family bonding and boosts children's technical understanding, a new study has claimed.
The survey, which claims to debunk the myth that video gameplay comes at a cost to healthier pursuits, was carried out in Ireland and the UK by PopCap Games in partnership with Goldsmiths University in London.
Two-thirds of the children said they were more relaxed after playing and 78pc reported an improvement in their understanding of technology through playing video games.
