The Times also reported "Lieury said that helping one's children with their homework, reading, playing Scrabble or Su Doku or watching documentaries instead of soap operas matched or beat the console." Now, I'm all for questioning theories, but I draw the line at insulting Dr.Kawashima. Professor Lieury might think he's a quack, but to gamers he's that friendly floating head that guides us through the Brain Age games.
Personally, I never really took Brain Age's claims all that seriously. However, I can see how some Nintendo customers, particularly those unfamiliar with gaming, might believe the claims.
Do you think Lieury is correct on tearing down Kawashima's theories? Or do think he's an uptight Frenchman that forgot to down his his cafe au lait and pain au chocolate?
