How games saved people's lives

This article: http://borderhouseblog.com/?p=6031

brought me to this site:

I don't have an essay long enough to post there, but I sometimes say games saved my sanity because when my Mom was sick, which was something that I had no control over, I found it soothing to play various Facebook games such as Farmville and Fairyland, where the object was to create something, however pointless, in an environment that was very simple, predictable, and orderly.

So it's interesting to see other people acknowledging that games help them in similar ways.

I sometimes read [profile] fandomsecrets and http://www.postsecret.com and I like seeing comments about how something supposedly frivolous has made a huge positive difference in someone's life.
