A recent study done by Professor Daniel Johnson in Queensland University in Australia revealed that playing video games exerts positive influence more than watching TV.   In the research, kids aged from 2 to 5 all exceeded the government-promoted stipulation of one-hour gameplay time per day.   The study also found that 92% of families have home consoles, handheld consoles, or iPads for gaming.   The prevalence of gaming devices in the household was not deemed harmful but quite on the contrary, the study found that video gaming could be inducive to higher self-esteem or mental development. overall gaming could be positive to physical and psychological growth.

However let us take the finding of this study with a grain of salt and consider that binge-gaming will be harmful, the same with any other binge-actions.
