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").
