i have a cousin who has his 3 year olds gaming. these kids play mario64 and zelda64. my son is almost 3 and i wouldnt think to have him play games. i have read a few articles that it increases their hand eye coordination, and gives them rapid eye movement - which can be beneficial. i see it as a way to lead them in to a life of illiteratecy and a rude behavior. i guess if you supervise and limit their game time you can lead them to a healthy gaming life. i'm not sure what i think yet. what are your thoughts on kids and gaming?
