 The Perfect Family Togetherness Through Video Games!

Popular belief is that computer games can make people "anti-social" but a new research has proved this otherwise. It claims that they in fact, "bring families together".

During the research, Bond University's Dr Jeffrey Brand found that a growing number of parents are playing such games with their kids.


Brand found that 88 per cent of Australian homes have at least one device for video or computer games, reports the Courier Mail.

Seventy per cent of parents in such households play computer or video games, and of those, 80 per cent play them with their children.

Brand said the oldest person involved in the study was an 88-year-old who played computer games with his wife.

More than 1600 families were surveyed for the study.
