Child Genius: Games A Waste Of Time


Posted June 8, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

Child GeniusLos Angeles child Moshe Kai Cavalin is a prodigy. The 11-year-old boy graduated with honors from East Los Angeles Community College with a Associate Arts degree in Liberal Studies last week. He likes astro-physics, Bruce Lee movies, and martial arts. But Cavalin does not like video games.

"I feel it's a waste of time playing video games because it's not helping humanity in any way," Cavalin told L.A.'s NBC affiliate. He'll use all that not-playing-games time in the next six months to devote himself to martial arts, write a book for kids on how to succeed in school, and take up scuba diving.

So what do you think, gamers? Is Cavalin right about this one? He has, after-all, gotten further in school than many older people, and he might be smarter than you... If you think he's wrong, I want to know how, specifically, you think video games are helping humanity.

Personally, I think if I put him in front of Super Mario Galaxy for only 20 minutes, he'd renounce his high-achievement ways and become a game-addicted slacker like the rest of us! That whole "games don't help humanity" thing sounds like something his folks said to him, instead of an opinion he arrived at himself.
