I've heard it said that when children are playing, they're learning. So what is that they're learning when they're Gaming?

Computer Gaming that is, online, Playstation, whatever. Sure they might be picking up a little history, a little marksmanship, some dubious driving skills. But what of overall life skills? What is Gaming teaching them (about the world, about themselves) that's going to make them stronger, more functional adults?
