A new study, Game Changer: Investing in Digital Play to Advance Children's Learning and Health, has advised that games can be used as an educational force for American good.

"Despite their reputation as promoters of violence and mayhem, digital games have in fact been shown to help children gain content and vital foundational and 21st-century skills," said the paper.

"Digital games are here to stay and offer the country a rare opportunity to leverage children's already established enthusiasm in order to reform education and promote healthy development."

The report says America's money-givers should start investing in game's for the good of the nation's youth.
