HEY! I go to Victoria!

Joking...

Anyways, news always reports these bad things about gaming. It seems that their ultimate goal is to get parents pissed off at the gaming industry or something.

Actually it is different from playing video games. During a game your mind is active - it's constantly reacting to changing conditions, correcting errors, and problem solving. Watching television lowers your brain activity to that of complete passivity - so while neither of you are engaging in a physically healthy pastime, she's at a higher risk for something like senility later in life.
