did videogames help you to learn to read as a child?

I read books.
I still prefer books to games.

It did for me. Between books and video games I did a lot of reading.

I guess so. I don't like reading books, and during my school life I spent all my time avoiding to do homework than actually doing them.

Doesn't help me now, though.
Competitive gaming is a joke.

Definitely, though I already knew how to read. Video games just strengthened my vocabulary and reading comprehension. I remember using "rendezvous" in my second grade class and my teacher was so impressed.

Nah. I didn't really get in to games until after I already knew how to read.

No. I learned to read through books. I didn't even get a video game console until I was 8 and didn't start playing games with lots of reading until high school. On the other hand ever since I was six, I've loved reading books more than almost anything else.
