As reported by Techradar, An EU report has claimed that most games aren't dangerous to children, saying they can instead be beneficial in the development of a number of life-skills.

"Video games can stimulate learning of facts and skills such as strategic thinking, creativity, cooperation and innovative thinking, which are important skills in the information society," says the study.

"Video games are in most cases not dangerous," added Dutch MP Toine Manders, the report's author.

"We heard evidence from experts on computer games and psychologists from France, the US, Germany and the Netherlands and they told us that video games have a positive contribution to make to the education of minors."
