"Experts suggests playing for less than 21 hours a week. Past 21 hours, the benefits from gaming decrease and the effects turn harmful."
It's saying in moderation it's fine.

You also get way by being a lazy fatass who never leaves your room. Playing video games are optional.

I think what he meant was those who play games per household. Not aiming at casuals or hardcore gamers. Just the fact that they play games.

But for the purpose of the study it was appropriate.

I think that was kind of the point the author was going for. Ultimately when trying to prove a point you go with information that benefits your point best. He could've done it your way and decided to not use that information because it didn't support his point as well as what he used.

Same difference because they use the same method. You're not going to make a study that does not support what you are saying. It all devolves into politics. Facts are always twisted to best suit the user. you would be hard pressed to find something that did not have twisted facts. Perhaps I should've said something different but point remains the same.

As soon as I read about "social gaming", I siwtched off and realised the OP had a completely different interpretation of "gamer" to myself.

Also, it dumbfounds me that I never read it anywhere, but when I was writing my dissertation a few years ago, one of the key positive aspects I had for the potential treatment benefits of video games has never come up since. I recall reading about a boy who had some kind of problem with his hands, where he wouldn't stop biting them and, as a result, it wasn't healing. The doctor recommended the boy used a handheld gaming device (this was in the 90's, it implied a Gameboy classic) to distract himself. It was successful.
