Your experience is a common one. Your son is clearly being stimulated in some fashion by the games, the specifics of which are unimportant in my estimation. There is good research from the UK that suggests that TV, computers and PC games are largely responsible for the increasing incidence of ADHD compared to even 10 yrs ago. A sensible recommendation is to limit screen time to an hour a day in all children and to 2 hours a day in adults. It is also important to understand that this cannot be banked (ie 7 hours over the weekend), just as you cannot have 7 glasses of red wine on a Saturday. Please do not give in, these children in particular appreciate knowing where their boundaries are - even if they do continually push them.
