They surely don’t train emotional intelligence which is very important imho if one wants to navigate the murky waters of the human society.
But they can be fun and getting better at such games should also improve self-esteem and confidence.

Depends on who is writing the article like many things. I’d say they are good at improving your ability to play such games. As to positive benefits I think there’s a very mixed view out there.

That might be true but does that translate to better overall cognition?

I think that it’s different from using muscles and learning. Practical problem solving from games may help a bit but not as great as actually doing an activity that uses co ordination or your body.
