Newsbrief: A new study from scientists at Oxford University has found that playing video games for short bursts of time can have a positive impact on child development.

As reported by the BBC, the study found that children who played games for less than an hour a day were more satisfied with life, got on well with people, and had fewer emotion problems.

That being said, the study also found the reverse for children who played more than three hours of video games a day, stating that these kids were "the least well adjusted" compared to those who only played an hour, or those who didn't play at all.

You can read the full results at the BBC.

so amazing parents would be a suit of plate mail and video games a cheap leather cap that kept your head dry but if you wore it too long started to make your hair fall out?

And in the back of your mind you know that just as soon as you find a proper coif or helm, you'll start going out adventuring more and leave the leather cap on the hook by the front door only wearing it from time to time when you went out to the Dented Mug Tavern to trade adventure stories with friends.
