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.
