When I was growing up my brother would spend a lot of time playing Nintendo, then Playsatation, and then XBox. He still plays it when he has offtime. I have a little boy and I don't know if it would be wise to buy him a game console when he grows up.
Are there any benefits besides getting them out of your hair for a while?
My son has learned a lot with video games. In fact, his teacher has even encouraged him to play educational video games to help him learn certain things that he was having difficulty with.

my kids really love their wii and also playing computer games on pbs kids, disney, starfall and nick jr. it really helps with hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. the computer games teach them computer skills as well as learning math, reading, etc. it also helps them to feel comfortable using a computer. they have a certain amount of time to play....i don't let them spend all of their free time on the computer. they still go outside and play or play with their other toys. i think it's really beneficial if they are playing appropriate games and they're not on it constantly. the wii is also something fun we do together as a family :D
