Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe says videogames helped him overcome obstacles

2:40 PM on 01.29.2009 // Colette Bennett

For every person that's on the rampage about the horrors of videogames, there seems to be another than claims that they have played an essential role in his or her life. Take Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe for example, who mentioned in an interview with The Daily Beast that videogames were more than just a leisure activity:

"I have a very mild form of (dyspraxia) it. I’ve gotten it mostly under control now. I played a lot of video games as a kid which really helped it. It basically surfaces as bad coordination."

You see, haters? If Daniel had never played games and improved his movement ability, he wouldn't be where he is today, which would be a damn shame since he looks pretty freaking good naked next to that horse in the pic above.
