Despite your mother's benevolent intentions, her complaints that you were wasting your childhood/ruining your eyes/generally harming yourself whenever you had a game controller in hand were way, way off.

Although a decade too late to aid our fightback against the maternal anti-gaming argument, this infographic from Liberty Games is still a vindicating read - showing the multiple and varied advantages of regularly rattling away on a joystick.

Did you know that short, sharp sessions of Super Mario 64 can do more good to your mind than a sudoku quiz? Or that playing Tetris can actually grow your brain?

It looks like you'll have to find a new argument for persuading your own kids to go outside and get some air. Chances are they'll have a more intelligent reply than our own ("NO").
