Apparently experts were called in and the European Parliament has decided that video games are good for children. I think the actual report isn't out yet. Hopefully it'll get airtime when it does come out.
That's because the Puritans, Huguenots and Anabaptists left Europe. Unfortunately, I live where they built an anti-child culture in which children are just bad, and fun is a sin. (that was an editorial comment from Sandra Dodd)
If the U.S. Senate (advised by the education and child welfare experts) voted that video games were harmful, it wouldn't make it so, and so it's not a vote of the European Parliament that makes them good, either. Still, I love government legislation of value-to-children (who can't vote). At least they gathered expert advisors from many countries and listened to them.
