I feel vindicated. Yesterday I came across this article at BBC Online.
Apparently computer games don't really rot your brain as many people seem to advocate, but can actually stimulate learning.
I can testify to this. I learned more from playing Theme Park on my Amiga about running a business venture than I did from 2 years of a GCSE Business Studies course. The only thing that taught me that I remember today is the correct spelling of buisiness. And that took the majority of the 2 years.

During their exploration, Archer is mesmerized by visions of a woman desperately attempting to communicate with him.

Heeding her call, Archer levels the playing field against the alien hunters.
