The essay Games by Steven Johnson talks about children having less interest in books and more interest in games. He compares the two and believes that they are both good. He states that the children are wasting more time on games than books that can help with mental work to process and store information. But playing video games helps improve our visual skills.
I think that books have more of a good outcome because with video games it can turn out to be addicting. I notice with the boys in my family or even friends that they get very isolated when they are playing games. They can go on for days.
