Video games are made to make you not think too hard. 

Chess was invented and developed before all that.  It is above it.  It is not marketable to most people because of this.  I have friends that love video games and other board games but hate chess because it's too difficult, it doesn't have the same lab-rat-on-crack effect.

It's the only game that matters.

There are several genres of video games. There is a puzzle genre that makes you use problem solving skills just like with Chess. Cubot is a good example of a logic puzzle video game. Whether it is with chess or video games. They both keep your brain moving. A stationary brain is at risk for Alzheimer's.

You might think that, but to me chess is just as addictive and harmful as any video game. I've played a lot of video games, and I have to say chess is on average more addictive than any of the games I've played so far. Its really tough to stop even when I make a concerted effort to do so.

As other members on this forum have said, the biggest mistake you can make in chess is playing it in the first place. Just because it is not constructed by big corporations to keep you addicted doesn't really speak to its own potential. The game is about 1000 years old, I think the oldest ever made. So whoever designed it, did something "right".
