Why Games Are Good For You
Don't regret your life. Don't wish for a better life when you're about to die. Make your life better now. Games and video games can be good for you.

I think the major flaw with her reasoning is that the people who were dying in that study were not a generation of gamers but perhaps the opposite, and so their regrets reflect that imbalance of work over play. The dying regrets of this generation may very well be that not enough time was spent working.

All that said, the reason I liked this video had nothing to do with anything you disagreed with.

On a sidenote, exercise can also be harmful. You can burn out your muscles.

exercise and rest go hand in hand for a healthy body. Usually, most people who aren't doing body building or sports for a living should end up integrating exercise at least 4-5 days a week... for a period of 20min (when starting out) to 1h.

That wouldn't be nitpicking to bring that up because that is the exact constitution of an addiction, of which we're talking about. Addiction is when you keep doing something even when it's more or less insane (by our standard of sane anyway) to do so.

Training properly to have a fit body needs a bit of science too.

For instance, a basic workout in order to get good in shape can consist of 2 basic things.

Running 5-7 times a week and doing 2-3 sets of pushups 3 times a week. This is a basic, do at home routine that if you do it, you will notice improvements in your body, your energy and your looks in about half an year.

However, even this simple workout can prove damaging to people who do it wrong. People who decide to do pushups every single day instead of taking days off from it so that the body recovers. Granted, in time, after a few months, you can do it every 4-5x a week, but before that, its a big no-no. And then they burn out their muscles and end up where they started or worse. Same for running. People who decide to go running both in the morning and the evening. Since we are talking about people who have other issues to deal with, like a job, university and what naught, they don't find the time to consume the proper nutrients to keep up such an effort and the body will cannibalize its muscles because of the lack of proper protein intake.

The only real workout routine that you can't really strike out with is swimming. 30-40min of swimming does you all-round good.
