The Mirror quotes Watson as stating: “Basically, I think playing games is a good thing. I'd rather my boy be playing on his Wii than passively watching telly.
“Most games are educational. Even the fun stuff has serious real-world applications. They make you think, focus, challenge and change – 500 years ago a medium that did this would be called art.”
Watson added that his three-year-old son learned to count thanks to a TellyTubbies game, and that a friend’s eight-year-old child learned how to make bronze whilst playing Runescape.
