Hi Everyone I going to be the old one out here... I spent a LOT of time gaming with my son. Some of you may have heard of World of Warcraft. My son and I spent a LOT of time in that game when I was first separated. I had a PC set up side by side with his and "Partied" with him and we did things together. It worked well for us and as it is a "World" we explored lots of things like the games "Auction House" where we learnt about buying and selling things in a market.. Gathering things and making items for Sale through "Crafting". We even spent time "Fishing!" together. As we were together I was able to moderate the interaction with other players while he was younger. This allowed me to shut down exposure to players who were behaving badly and encourage interaction with a "Kid Friendly" guild. Fast forward years and I no longer play and he rarely does. He is to busy with his Uni friends and girl friend to play. Looking back I would say it was positive for him, but only because he was monitored and moderated while learning about online gaming.
