They take a lot of skill. It's just unfortunate that this particular skillset doesn't have a lot of applications to other areas.

Disagree - Video Games take some skill.

The amount of skill required to play a game, combined with which skills needed to play a game, vary. If "video games take no skill," then why is it that I can play through Mass Effect on Insanity while my father has trouble with Easy? If they took "no skill," then clearly my ease on Insanity would be shared by my father - but it isn't.

I think the fact that games have difficulty levels is more than enough proof of this, at the most basic level.

If they didn't require skill any gamer could be Ninja Gaiden on NES.

Science disagrees with you. Not only do games take skill but they have been shown to improve both motor function and anallytical skills.
