Do your muscles enlarge when lifting weights? Do muscles enlarge when rowing a boat? Kinda dumb to think that ANY activity will be without a result. Sure I think games help increase brain power...but I rather doubt they do so as much as a good course in math. Or two hours on Martial arts mat for that matter....but I could be wrong! ":O}
