This was a good update, and I'm especially interested in hearing the proposed game ideas next week.
I also wanted to add to the comment about games, such as Civilization, as being "constructive." My younger brother (soon to be 6), has been playing games since he could hold a controller. One he plays regularly on PC is Roller Coaster Tycoon. Roller Coaster Freakin' Tycoon, since he was 4, I believe. I'd say that's pretty constructive. He has also been playing RPGs, like Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga, and I encouraged him to actually read what was being said. He is the top reader in his class now, and I strongly believe these games had something to do with that.
EDIT: Nate is awesome for mentioning One Piece! =D
And I didn't know CR was in this. o.o
