Typing is a great skill to learn and so necessary in today's world that it is good to start at a young age (just not too young!). I'd encourage typing games over video games any day! By the way, at a teacher's conference I attended once the speaker presented findings from a study done on the brains of students who played violent video games vs. those that played other types of video games vs. those that did not play video games. The area of the brain that houses aggression was much larger and more developed in the students who played the violent video games and less in the ones that played other video games and not near as much in the ones who did not play them. Guess you might expect that but still...NOT good! My kid's will not be playing video games period! I told that to my 4th graders once and they said they were glad I wasn't their mom! Ha Ha!
