This is an example of absolute spin, spam, or pure junk. There may be some merrit to the idea of video learning through modern games, but the arguements in this work are weak and the statistics used to "prove" the case are even more feable. From my perspective, the stats suggest the opposit of the case the authors were trying to make.
