To me, video games are not good or bad. They don't even have advantages or disadvantages. They're just a media. It's like saying "Are books good ?" or "are movies good ?". The media itself changes nothing. The important thing is the ideas spreading through it.

Media are very strong factor in creating society. You are practically admitting that, but contradicting yourself, because the idea of media is to spread information, ideas included. Personally, my worldview is based on books that I've read, films I've watched, events that I've experienced and, partially, games I've played. In short: stories and ideas inside them. What is creating society is people. And what define a person is his/her worldview. Answering the question, I think they are, because they help relaxing after a hard day, you can have fun while slashing some orcs with your friends or even you can improve your intellect and tactics abilities. Also, lot of games have deep plot that can be compared to very good books.
