A new study from Microsoft has found that most parents can see the benefits of their kids playing video games. According to the software giant's survey, 75% of parents see benefits in their kids.

The survey also showed that 61% of respondents view games as a social experience and 80% see games as essential home entertainment. Many parents in the survey, 42%, say they worry about online gaming.

Of those polled 94% feel they are responsible for monitoring the age ratings of their kids' games and 47% of the kids polled said parents are not vigilant enough when checking age rating. Online games can be a worry even for E rated games since you can’t control what other players will say.
